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."


Favorite 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.


Suggested Improvements

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.


Favorite Features

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


Suggested Improvements

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.


Favorite Features

Room.


Suggested Improvements

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.


Suggested Improvements

BETTER FRONT SEAT SUPPORT

Review

We've been buying CVs 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.


Favorite Features

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


Suggested Improvements

seat memory, FOOTREST!
