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.

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


Review

We have driven this vehicle and had only one problem on the road. It was taken care of by the tow truck driver. It involved the starter and once it was started we simply did not turn it off until we got back to our dealer and it was fixed under warranty. We chose it for its comfort and handling. We consider it next to the Town Car.


Favorite Features

The total performance on the highway and its reliability. The large trunk. I love my passenger seat that is just like the driver's. My husband just likes the handling & chassis.


Suggested Improvements

More secure cup holders. Six player CD changer. Easier to find and use the horn.

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


Review

The Crown Vic runs great. It has a lot of passing power on the mountains and easily passes any foreign competition. It gets good gas mileage and has given me no problems despite being driven up and down mountains daily. The car is always ready to pass when needed and offers great comfort for my 6 foot 2" frame. The car is the most reliable car I have ever had. I hope Ford will continue this basic car for many more years. I tried the new 300c and it cost more and has less visibility and not much more get up and go even with the Hemi. For the money, the Ford Crown Vic is the best car money can buy.


Favorite Features

V8 engine and large trunk.


Suggested Improvements

More bling bling, such as more wood trim and chrome on the interior. The exterior is beautiful and the inside styling is a little disappointing.

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


Review

Bought this loaded LX (leather, dual power seats, climate control, etc.) in June '04 for $10,000 off sticker price of almost $30,000. For performance, comfort, safety and quality, this car is hard to beat. My wife loves it. Gets solid 25 mpg on highway and almost 16 around town.


Favorite Features

Comfort, safety, highway driving performance.


Suggested Improvements

Interior styling update, added storage compartments with two power outlets, better quality drink holders, less noisy turn signals.

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.
