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


Review

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.


Best Features

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.


Worst Features

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.

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.

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


Review

This is far and away the best ride I've ever owned. The interior is very roomy and quiet. The leather seats are so comfortable, especially on long road trips. It is amazing nimble for such a large car and I love the power under the hood. Surprisingly good gas mileage for an 8 cylinder engine makes it an excellent commute car.


Best Features

The quiet smooth ride and great factory stereo system (CD/cassette standard) with great sounding speakers.


Worst Features

Left foot rest.

Review

Purchased my Crown Victoria after having a Buick Le Sabre. I wanted the additional room and safety that the Crown Victoria offers. A great feeling having that much space around you, makes driving a pleasure. Great for long or short trips, excellent manueverability and handling for its size. Offers a very controlled yet smooth, almost luxury ride.


Best Features

Power seats with lumbar support provide excellent flexibility in positioning providing maximum comfort. Steering system provides agile manueverability handling extremely well. Responsive eight cylinder is beneficial when the need for power is called upon. High safety ratings.


Worst Features

Would have liked the option of having cornering lamps, these are very helpful at lighting up the sides of the roadway when turning on dark country roads. I must add however that the headlamps redesign are much brighter providing better lighting than my previous car.
