2003 Ford Crown Victoria LX 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
Purchased used with only 4200 actual miles on vehicle to replace a '96 Impala SS (245K miles on the clock). Wanted a large, US brand 4 door, V8, rear wheel drive car under $25K to drive on company business (1996 was last year GM made the rear wheel drive Impala SS). I now have 27K on the Ford odometer and have had no problems so far.
Bucket seats, 6 disc CD changer, center console with shifter, 17 inch alloy wheels with P235/55HR Goodyear Eagle tires, sports suspension and automatic load leveler.
The 4 speed automatic/overdrive transmission shifts erratically ... needs improvement; car lacks power ... even with true dual exhausts, has only 240 HP. The car needs a minimum of about 300 HP.
