2003 Ford Crown Victoria LX 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
I purchased this car new after owning a couple of Tauruses, a Sable and a Grand Marquis. I chose the Sport package and it is awesome. The power, handling and seating is so much better than the Grand Marquis. This car has done 90,000 miles, both long trips and local driving and has only had one non- maintenance repair, the rear air suspension compressor at 60,000 miles. Fuel mileage is consistently in the 26 mpg range even with the lower differential gearing of the Sport pkg. I'm in process of buying a 7000 mile 2006 LX Sport to replace it. Best car I've ever owned.
Sport package, performance, ride and handling, bucket seats with console, great sound system and total reliability. Great acceleration.
Update the interior a bit. No tachometer on 2003, (added it again later)
