2006 Ford Crown Victoria Sedan LX 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Having been a GM guy all my life and owning a Chevy and 2 Oldsmobiles, I was a little hesitant to drive a Ford, having known nothing much about them. This car has suprised me. I find myself driving with the radio off just so I can hear the engine! This car has a serious road presence, and with my Michigan Sheriff front license plate, I find myself often stuck behind traffic doing exactly the speed limit! Mine is a loaded up LX, gently used with 19k on it. I picked it up for only $15k. It has a smooth ride, not too floaty, and not too stiff, and good road feel for such an old-fashioned car.


Best Features

The basic American car: rear-wheel drive, V-8, and a full frame! You'd- better-get-outta-my-way road presence.


Worst Features

More Marauder parts: front bumper and exhaust tips. Center floor console would be nice. Some controls too far to reach. More power or a standard police engine wouldn't hurt

2006 Ford Crown Victoria Sedan LX 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Bought new with most options installed including sport suspension. Used primarily for road trips. At 65mph on interstate highways with cruise control gets 26-29mpg. Good power accelerating to highways speeds, 6-way power seats ensure a comfortable ride. The trunk space is superior, it's amazing what you can put in it. The automatic air suspension allows for carrying extreme amounts of stuff while the car stays level and stable. For its size and weight, handling is exceptional.


Best Features

Comfort, stability, large trunk, highway mileage.

2006 Ford Crown Victoria Sedan LX 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

This is my 3rd Crown Vic. They have to be one of the greatest values out there. They are dirt cheap to insure (~$700/yr for FULL coverage) and maintain. Fuel economy is not outstanding, but decent (18mpg in typical suburban driving). The ride is supremely comfortable and the car handles respectably for its size. My 2nd CV (a '94) has NEVER had any mechanical trouble or been in for other than routine service. The reliability of these cars is amazing and comfort level is top notch.


Best Features

The quite, smooth ride and cavernous trunk.


Worst Features

More horsepower would be nice.

2006 Ford Crown Victoria Sedan LX 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

The positive factors including the low insurance costs, the smooth quiet ride, decent performance, and excellent crash ratings, make this AMERICAN car one sweet ride. I drive in excess of 50K per year so I'm always looking for the maximum car for the least amount of money. This ride is the best going is this category. I bought my slightly used 2006 LX with 11,000 miles for under $15,000. I average 25.5 miles per gallon.


Best Features

Large comfortable size, the good gas mileage, good acceleration, and excellent crash ratings.


Worst Features

The vehicle could use better cup holders and more storage compartments.

Review

This is my first Ford. I'm a 36 year old woman who has always owned imports and sports cars; I sold a Lexus LS 430 and a Porsche 911 when I bought this car. Purchased it with 9k miles for $15k from my local dealer. I wouldn't pay sticker price (at $30k new) but for $15k I feel I have a safe, reliable, large sedan with real wheel drive and a V8. Is it as refined as my Lexus? No, but it didn't cost $60k. The styling is dated, but I don't mind people having to take a second look to see if I'm a police car. The best thing about this car is that every time I get in it I am reminded that I have a lot more money in the bank than if I drove a "luxury" car. Excellent value!


Best Features

Reliability, excellent crash test scores, and comfortable ride.


Worst Features

Cup holder could be a better design (but then my Porsche didn't even have cup holders).
