Review of the 2002 Ford Crown Victoria

  • One of the last rear-drive, V8, traditional full-size sedans, the kitschy Crown Vic is appealing in a hand-knit-sweater-from-Grandma kind of way.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Plenty of interior room, comfortable ride, excellent crash-test ratings.

  • Cons

    Large size makes it difficult to park and maneuver, roof-mounted bike rack makes car look like police cruiser.

  • What's New for 2002

    A new Crown Vic LX Sport model with 235 horsepower, boosted torque, a performance-oriented axle ratio and five-spoke 17-inch wheels debuts. The Sport also comes with leather front bucket seats and a nifty center console. Standard Crown Vics get new included equipment like an auto-dimming rearview mirror, front seat back pockets and wheel covers. Newly optional on Standard models is luxury cloth seating and power-adjustable pedals. Those pedals, floor mats, heated side mirrors, antilock brakes, 12-spoke alloy wheels and steering wheel controls for the stereo and climate controls are now standard on LX models. Electronic gauges have been thoughtfully moved to the LX options list. LX and LX Sport get an optional trunk storage system. All Vics benefit from upgraded cupholders.

Vehicle: 2002 Ford Crown Victoria LX Sport 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

I have owned a variety of vehicles and worked in a full auto repair shop for years. The Crown Victoria Ia an amazing vehicle. I get 22 MPG average. Lots of Power in the engine and for all and any electronics i want. Drive is smooth and it is very fun to work on with sooo much room. Even got hit by a rice burner couple dents missing side view mirror but the other cars front end was destroyed and bounced off my back tire!!! This car is a Tank on wheels!!!

Vehicle: 2002 Ford Crown Victoria LX 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

I have a love hate relationship with this car. I love that it has 122k on it an other than a few minor problems there hasn't been anything major happen with this car. I bought it because the reliability of these old school tools is reknowned in fleets and with loyal customers. The down side is that if the road is anything less than billiard table smooth the car rattles, squeaks, shakes, and shimmies its way over every bump and pothole on these budget deprived streets of Savannah. No sense of straight ahead on the road. Crosswinds blow the old girl all over the road. And yet, I average 20 miles to the gallon on my commute and can get up into the high 20's on road trips.

Vehicle: 2002 Ford Crown Victoria LX 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

This heavy cruiser is a fantastic highway car getting a high of 27.3 mpg on a trip from Savannah to upstate NY. Smooth ride as long as the hiway is smooth. Poor around town performance as the tall gearing has the transmission constantly downshifting at even the slightest hint of throttle depression. Huge trunk is not the most usable as everything has to fit in the well. Poor sense of straight ahead. Handling is pretty much non existent as the car has very poor steering feel and is easily affected by bumps and ripples on these old Savannah streets. I bought this after an accident thinking that I would be safer. I have been and it has been mechanically reliable but the downside is a boring car




This is the 'ultimate driving

Vehicle: 2002 Ford Crown Victoria 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

The LX-Sport model, mine is all black w/black interior. Car is now at 97000 miles. This vehicle is an incredible work of automotive excellence. What a shame it is that Ford has decided NOT to sell them to the public anymore. The dealer where I get mine serviced had a salesman there that said everytime he saw me come in..."you're driving Fords best kept secret"! Car is flawless, and even at 97000+ miles still drives AND looks like new. I will keep this LX-Sport for ever!

A modern "bluesmobile".

Vehicle: 2002 Ford Crown Victoria 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

The P71 Crown Vic is a really cool car. If you like big and roomy, you'll love the former cop car Crown Vic. If you like good performance, you'll enjoy it too. Great acceleration with the 4.6L GT V8. Nice anti-lock brakes without a severe bucking bronco effect. Nice tight steering makes it quite maneuverable for a big car in city traffic but use two hands on the freeway at full speed. While not a race car, it does offer plenty of get up and go. It's no wonder cabbies like these birds! The main drawback is fuel consumption. I get about 15mpg (combined), so what you get is a car that is like the Concorde (the aircraft): Big, fast, and burns gas like one!
