2003 Ford Crown Victoria Sedan 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Ride and handling are excellent but not for long trips. Bucket seats should be standard on all models as well as a gps system for police models. Otherwise leave well enough alone and keep making a quality product. I love my "Vic."


Best Features

Looks kind of like a police cruiser which is good because no one bothers the car or driver. Easy to enter and exit and trunk is humongous.


Worst Features

Minor cosmetic interior changes. Bucket seats standard on all models and do away with the cheesy cup holder/ashtray and replace with a console between front seats. Directional arrows in rear view mirrors would add safety to vehicle.

2003 Ford Crown Victoria Sedan 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Bought LX Sport 2003 for 40% off MSRP used and enjoy every moment of ride. It is a lot of car for money. I have all luxury options, excluding only heated seats and sun roof. I like firm suspension, handling, amazing passing power on high speeds. Car is big and VERY comfortable. On negative side has more inside noise than my 10 year old Grand Marquis. Since mine is black, have to mention police car effect on the road.


Best Features

Firm suspension, rear air suspension, comfy seats, great passing power, size.


Worst Features

Add heated seats. Back seat hole for skis! Would like to have less noise inside.

Review

Too much wind turbelence and had
defective steering box, replaced at
2000 miles, damaged arm rest, they
installed one with a fabric that did
not match. AC had leak and would not
cool properly-dealer is rated tops in
south but wonder why as too many
complaints and mad people when you
visit. Requires one to fill out survey
about service when vehicle is picked
but tell you what you report goes
against service writer. That way they
manipulate the owner into giving them a
good review.


Best Features

Room.


Worst Features

Improve integrity at this dealership.

Review

GREAT CAR EXCEPT FOR FRONT SEAT. I AM
A MALE WHO WHEIGHS 260LBS AND FIND
THAT ON LONG DRIVES THE FRONT SEAT
BECOMES VERY UNCOMFORTABLE. DID A
RECENT SURVEY WALKING ACROSS PARKING
LOTS AND NOTICED THAT 95% OF THESE
CARS HAVE PILLOWS OR SOME TYPE OF
CUSHONING ON THE SEAT. WHAT A SHAME
FORD. BAD ENOUGH FOR ME TO WANT TO
SELL CAR. HAVE 2 OTHER CARS THAT HAVE
NO PROBLEM AT ALL IN THIS AREA.


Worst Features

BETTER FRONT SEAT SUPPORT

Review

We've been buying CV’s for many years
and owned at least 4 or 5. We
currently own 2. What makes it great
is its safety, it is constructed on a
metal frame/foundation. My mother was
in
accident in which she was rearended
and smashed from the front. The other
cars were wrecked, the CV was fine and
no one was seriously hurt.
My father will not drive any other car
and i definetly agree with him.
Best part is people assume youre a
police cruiser and tend to get out of
your way. I'd reccomend this car for
anyone in the market for such a
vehicle.
The only negative is people who get
car sick will get sick quicker due to
its smooth ride.


Best Features

SAFE!! Feather light powersteering at low speeds. Great engine/power. Superb capacity and trunk space. adjustable break pedal. Strong AC.


Worst Features

seat memory, FOOTREST!
