The new Crown Victoria has several design and mechanical innovations for 2003 that improve its ride and handling, but it will always be what it has always been - a large, traditional, body-on-frame, rear-wheel drive sedan that comfortably transports 5 or 6 adults. It is excellent value for the money it costs, and maneuvers in city traffic more nimbly than one would expect of a car this size.
Smooth ride and sense of solid security. Has almost all of the refinements and assessories one expects from more expensive sedans, but costing thousands less than its competitors.
The following would be nice additions: fog lights; driver's left foot rest; tachometer.
Overall, the car lacks very little.
