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


We've had this car for almost a year as of this writing and are very, very satisfied with its performance and comfort. Large, yet modest. Doesn't leak a drop of nothin', except a/c condensation. Yes, we did have to replace a rear axle shaft a few months in, but flawless otherwise. Though it gets a lousy 12 mpg in the city, it gets 28 to 30 on the highway - incredible! And that's with three adult-sized people with luggage. Smooth as honey on the interstate.

Best Features

Heck,I like all the features we've got (it was a fleet vehicle, so it was not overly loaded).

Worst Features

Those cupholders are really pathetic - gotta improve on that. Wish I had more room at the front trans bump, so I could put a coin caddy there (or a decent cupholder!) And find a way to keep the rain out of the trunk when you have to open it!

Our F-150 does everything your Crown Victoria does, three adult-sized people with luggage, although we have to put our luggage in bins in case it rains. We love the basic yet reliable as a tack V8 engine (which they're part of the same family) and we love how it "just works", unlike a lot of contemporaneous Chrysler products.
