Big luxurious 1980's style American boulevardier. Quiet and comfortable on smooth roads, rough pavement causes abrupt and harsh ride. Poor handling, with loose floating motions on quickly undulating freeways. Spacious, first class looking, fully equipped interior Impressively roomy rear seat legroom. Disappointingly, the first class interior styling is betrayed by average contstruction and assembly. Rattles in doors and dash occasionally sour the luxury ambiance. Powerful but boomy 10 speaker Infinity Ultimate Sound system. Overall a nice blast from the past available for bargain prices. Imperials do not stand up well to abuse or neglect, watch out for well maintained examples.
Headlamps concealed behind motorized covers. 6 passenger seating. Digital/electronic graphic instrument cluster. 2 position memeory for driver's seat and rearview mirrors. Auto dimming inside rearview mirror. Overhead travel computer. Extra spacious rear legroom. Good fuel economy. 21 city 27 hwy.
Bigger wheels & tires! 14 inchers are too small for a full size American Car. Heftier/ more solid feeling interior components. Lexus level quietness, road/sound isolation. Standard CD player. Rear Seat sun visors/vanity mirrors. Overhead passenger assist straps.
Overall great car. Perfect size for family of 5. Rear seat/leg space just comparable-or better- than Crown Vic. 15" wheels would have been better choice. Aquired car w/ 90000 miles & ran it another 100000. Air suspension gave out & replaced w/ New Yorker suspension. Elegant body design w/ high level interior. Would have kept it longer had there been a need for a 3rd car. Ample trunk space w/ handy air compressor for emergencies.
2-memory seat adjust. overhead console. comfortable rear seats. wide rear doors. front seat adjust. interior sound proofing. roofline. heavy car ride. sound system.
1. turning radius needs to be tighter. 2. variable suspension selection should improve handling. 3. 3.8L engine w/ increased hp would make car better performer. 4. better paint finish. pealing common problem [even on other chrysler products]. 5. re-positioning of control buttons on driver's door
Bought car with 69,000 miles for $2000. It now has 71,000 miles and has needed a waterpump, new hoses, rear brakes (rotors and pads), muffler, battery, and that is about it. It has pretty good pickup and will run with a 1994 Crown Vic till about 90 MPH. Very comfortable car on the staights but you have to take it really easy on the turns due to "comfort tuned" suspension.
I love the power seats and the looks I get from the Ladies. ;) It also sounds pretty quick revving it up.
Stiffer suspension, more horsepower, and that's it.
Bought this vehicle 5 years ago. It had 95000 miles then. Have driven it 110,000 mles. Have replaced the transmission once and removed the air suspension. Have enjoyed the car very much and hope to drive it for a few years yet. Wayne
very comfortable. lots of toys
The interior (door panels in particular)do look cheap
I have enjoyed excellent service from
my Imperial. I wanted a good looking,
quiet, dependable, economical, and
unique automobile. The Imperial has not
disappointed me any at all. I receive
compliments on it's good looks and
uniqueness. Most people that inquire
are surprised this car is 15 years old
now. The unique front end, tailights,
and formal roofline set this car off
from others around it. The sumptuous
interior includes supple Mark Cross
leather seats and a premium sound
system. It rides like a dream but not
wallowy like a boat. You drive
surrounded by genuine luxury, security,
in an atmosphere of peace and quiet.
The car does work the small engine, but
the fuel economy is excellent
Unique looks, quiet ride,
dependability, supple ride and
luxurious interior, and fuel economy. I
regularly receive compliments of how
good looking the car is for its age. I
replaced the small 14" wheels with
attractive 16" wheels and tires. This
really improved the ride and suspension
The rustproofing metal treatment should
have been more thorough. The 3.3 V-6
engine is just adequate, the 3.8 has
much snappier performance for
interstate traffic. Provisions for
aesthetically integrated foglights
would have been appreciated.
