The car is surprisingly noisy at highway speeds and feels cheap.
The road noise coupled with the growling
exhaust note at acceleration made me feel like I was driving a smaller import.
I was also surprised at how much you feel bumps during normal driving. It didn't have that big car ride. I will give it high marks for braking since it has four wheel disc brakes.
The interior is just plain dull and cheap. I guess considering the majority of these become taxis and law enforcement vehicles interior design is not a high priority.
My '96 Buick Roadmaster embarrasses this car in every catagory and thats a difference of 15 years!

From the first gen mustang, the full size Bronco, the 90's taurus, the 7.3 diesel powerstroke, and now the Crown Victoria; Ford has developed a reputation for killing the winners...Why Ford didnt throw a couple bucks into an updated interior, along with exploring options such as offering this vehicle with the newer Ecoboost and Coyote V-8 engines will forever be a mystery.
