1990 Ford LTD Crown Victoria Wagon 4dr Wagon


Review

As a people and stuff hauler, it does quite well, carrying 6 people in relative comfort, and 8 at max. It has enough cargo space and towing capacity to compete with a mid-size SUV, and gets better fuel mileage. Ride and handling are on the poor side of average when compared to mid-size imports from the period. The engine is torquey, but is less powerful than many current I4s making it fairly slow. Reliability has been mixed. When I'm told by Vic enthusiasts that the SEVEN significant repairs (most would cost $500+ to repair professionally) the car needs are all "common" for this model, I begin to wonder what they think "reliable" means. But, the car runs well and gets me where I'm going.


Best Features

Big cargo and towing capacity makes it a great 2nd vehicle or alternative to SUV. Tough body and frame have stood up to MN winters. Big, heavy, and slow makes it a safe first car. It may not be exceptionally reliable, but parts are cheap (if you can find them) and easy to replace by yourself.


Worst Features

Outdated styling and ergonomics. Surprisingly short on legroom. More efficient design could free up a lot more interior space. Potholes and cracks upset the suspension. Numb steering. Most common reliability issues caused by cheap parts and materials, and poor design and assembly.

Review

After our 1989 Dodge Caravan died with a busted block, we purchased this car for our family of four. This car is the ultimate family car. Large bench seats, SMOOTH ride, and dependable to a fault. Over the past 12 years our family has grown to seven and this car was still getting the job done until we purchased an SUV in 2004. Today, "Ethel" our beloved wagon is being prepped to be taken over by my son as his first car.


Best Features

Smooth ride, plenty of engine power, workhorse mentality - just won't quit.


Worst Features

None.
