2007 Ford Crown Victoria LX 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
This is the third Crown Vic I have owned. I ran the first to 141K and the second to 176K. I have put 14K on this one to date. While the ride on this one is a bit stiff, it is compensated by excellent handling. My wife just says, "It's fun to drive." On a recent road trip of over 850 miles, I held my speed down to 65 and got 30.6 MPG overall, without air. Now, tell me what other vehile gets that fuel efficiency in the comfort provided by the CV? I understand that Ford is discontinuing the CV for consumer use, so I will probably have to go to the Grand Marquis in 8-10 years when this one needs replacement.
Handling. Trunk space. Fuel economy for such a large car
A nose upgrade - not particularly attractive. (Leave the back end alone - many, many cars out today have been patterned after the CV's derriere.)
