2005 Ford Crown Victoria LX Sport 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I bought this at about 76k miles, I now have almost 83k. It is all black and leather interior, just about all the extras you can add. I drove this from Austin, Texas to Pennsylvania. It was a 1600 miles trip and the car was fully packed, back seat included. I still got 24-25 mpg. City driving is about 18 but for a V8 and how heavy the car is, not bad at all. I love it and wouldn't sell it at all. Great power and actually a head turner, probably cause they think I am undercover ;). People do move out of the way on the highway though. I do plan on adding some extras like intake and exhaust etc for even more of a muscle car.


Favorite Features

8 way power seats, moon roof, power, handling, surprisingly mpg.


Suggested Improvements

I really can't think of any

2005 Ford Crown Victoria LX Sport 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

After driving my dad's "new" 2007 Crown Vic LX I hit autotrader to see what kind of prices I could find on Vics.. I stumbled upon a 2005 LX Sport with moonroof, 32,xxx miles, priced at $12,750! Wow! What a car for a price like that! I've owned 1 front wheel drive car and driven many, I can't stand them.. Torque steer, odd weight distribution, hard on front tires, etc. The Crown Vic is perfection of a RWD full frame platform derived from YEARS of feedback being used in the most abusive of driving conditions, and boy did they ever get it right.


Favorite Features

RWD, V8, body on frame, watts link rear suspension with 4 outboard control arms, classic styling, refined suspension/steering, indestructible, and unmistakable on the road.


Suggested Improvements

More power, firmer shifts, a little stiffer stabilizer bars, updated stereo with input jack, more bolstering in the front seats, fog/driving lights. I can always find something in a car that needs improvement. Sadly the Crown Vic's days are numbered with production ending in a year or so.

2005 Ford Crown Victoria LX Sport 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I have had very good luck with Ford Crown Vic's. I put 150,000 miles on them and then sell them to folks who proceed to drive them for years. Reliability is probably the best of any American car. No electrical problems, no head gasket problems, no tranny issues. I never spend money for repairs other than regular maintenance. My 2005 'LX' Sport is very comfortable, great in the snow and ice with the traction control and gets 25 mpg. on the highway. I also like the safety as I live and travel in Minnesota and the drivers here are the worst in any state I have been in. I have tried other cars, none compare in value and reliability.


Favorite Features

Handling package is a must.


Suggested Improvements

Add heated seats to leather equipped cars.

2005 Ford Crown Victoria LX Sport 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Just bought this car and love it. The LX Sport gives a fantastic ride, great handling, and plenty of power. LX Sport comes with 17 inch wheels. This car moves! If you are looking for a sedan bigger than any GM car this is it. Rides so smooth and the handling package is great. Plenty of interior room and a huge trunk. This car is so under marketed by Ford!


Favorite Features

Love the bucket seats, floor shifter, great stereo system, love the lumbar seats, and dual exhaust!


Suggested Improvements

Offer the back up beeper that you do on the Ford 500. This beeps when you are getting close to anything.

Review

I have been looking for a good rear wheel drive vehicle to buy for two years. Now in 2005 I found the CV LX Sport as the best option for a growing family, with lots of trunk room. Several website list owners of CV/GM that drive them more than ten years and they have over a 100,000 miles on the car. I just want a good riding vehicle and I have found it with this vehicle. I wanted a vehicle that I can drive for more than 15 years or more and I feel this car will last that long. To me the fact the car only has 240 horsepower engine.


Favorite Features

The CD/cassette player works with my MP3 player, which is a big thumbs up for me. I love the automatic on the floor it gives you that old 60' and 70ís car look. I like the optional power moon roof, and the car has a nice sporty appearance, that makes it separate from the police car.


Suggested Improvements

Maybe about 40 more hp in the engine, a five speed automatic, and raise the fuel economy some also to keep economical. Full front and rear side impact air bags to protect the kids in the back. Also a DVD player and fold down screen for the kids.
