2004 Ford Crown Victoria Sedan LX 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I bought this Ford a year ago and it now has 65,000 miles on it. Everything works is the best running and most comfortable car I have owned. I get 30 mpg on the highway and 20 running around town. Love sitting at stop lights and young kids in little sports cars wanna run them. They get a quick surprise when all they see are my tail lights. I love my big Ford with the huge bench seat and the trunk you can put a small compact in.


Worst Features

Would like a tach, and when the rear defroster is on, the weaker radio stations don't come in..

2004 Ford Crown Victoria Sedan LX 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Others rate fuel economy as poor yet this car will give you 35 mpg Cdn (28 US). Try it. Non interstate routes 60 mph (Ottawa to Orillia and return) passing normally, booted it twice and got 34 mph. Amazing car and it's about as fast as a Hemi PU truck. Pricing is fantastic. $20,000 Cdn for a $41,000 car a year old and about 20,000 miles. Look at the whitest model and you will see one of the most beautiful cars around plus others will pull over and let you pass. Wearing a hat helps. There is nothing like the sound of a V8 as you all know.


Best Features

Size, V8, dual exhaust, comfort, quiet ride, and burning rubber.


Worst Features

Keep the 4.6L and up it to 315 hp which shouldn't affect fuel mileage.

Review

As a sales representative in Metro Detroit for over 20 years, the Crown Victoria has been perfect. Roomy, reliable, attractive with LX chrome, wheels and whitewalls. The Crown Victoria has never made too much of a "statement" to customers. This is fine product of the Ford Motor Company exudes the reliable American car driving experience. I hope Mr. Mulally and his team keep full-size rear wheel drive sedan products in the Ford lineup forever.


Best Features

Comfort, handling, reliability, surprising fuel economy, lack of serious issues in 75,000 miles.


Worst Features

Major refreshening for 2010 (current styling came out in 1998); Reinstate Crown Victoria in retail lineup after refreshening.

Review

Yeah, we all know that we'll get called "Grandpa" for driving one of these but it's serious fun. Mine is deep grey/black, dual-exhaust and all tinted. Watching all those speeders suddenly slow down is a laugh, and this beast has endless power. The styling is good, mileage is surprisingly good for a large car, and its super safe and comfortable. They might call me Grandpa, but I'm enjoying every moment on the road with a big smile on my face.


Best Features

Comfort, reliability and the style (with right colors, lke a Marauder) is way cool. Engine has lots of power, and smooth as glass on the highway. Highway mileage at ~ 25 MPG is amazingly good for something this size.


Worst Features

Only gripes are the stereo, (sounds tinny) and yeah, I wish the side mirrors were a bit bigger.

2004 Ford Crown Victoria Sedan LX 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Being a 22 yr old college student, I needed a vehicle that was reliable, comfortable on those long trips to and from school, and had a low ownership cost (low cost to buy, maintain, and insure). I purchased the 04 Crown Vic off of an individual who had bought the car new. The CV is a bargain and does everything I expected and more. On long trips I can expect 30-32 mpg and around town low 20's. The fuel economy is on par with many 6 cylinder mid-sized sedans. So why not go for more room, more comfort, and 8 cylinder performance? And when some unsuspecting smart alec pops off about it being a "granny car" I simply unleash the Triton V-8 and that shuts them up. A great value and a great car!


Best Features

Worlds best A/C and heat!! Great lumbar support. Impressive handling, performance, and fuel economy for such a large car. Handles and parks like a smaller car. Very comfortable on long trips. Will not overheat when idling on a 100 degree day with A/C on while sitting in traffic for hours.


Worst Features

More thigh support on front and rear seats. The radio controls are a bit of a reach, but having the steering wheel mounted climate and radio controls solves that. Engine needs more guts in the 50-60 mph range. Its a real shame 2007 is the last year for the CV.
