My crown vic is my first car and holds a special place in my heart, it even has a name: Victor. It was my grandpa's car, and when he died I had just turned 16 so I inherited the car, and it's served me well.
I've put about 40,000 miles onto the car in the past 5 years, but I can't be sure because the odometer stopped working at 99,000 miles, and I think I've probably put on another 10k since then.
I've had to replace the alternator and starter as well as every window motor, but other than that the car has been incredibly reliable. Oh and the rearview mirror fell off.
My only complaint is the gas guzzling, that v8 burns through gas like no ones business.
At 87 years old my Dad decided he had to stop driving and offered me a deal on his Crown Vic LX which he had since new. I had driven it before and liked it although the Champagne color didn't please me or my wife. After 5 years I love it, she hates it. We moved from CA to ME and had it shipped since it had no mileage to speak of. Performance it great, gas mileage is good, and comfort can't be beat. I want another one but doesn't look good for me. Great car!
Very powerful and dependable car. Gas
mileage is O.K.. Looks very classy.
Big and roomy interior. Get's you
where you want to go quickly. Brake
pads wear out too quickly, but are
located on all wheels. Very
dependable braking system.
This is my first car. I paid $2000 from
it in September of 2002, and it only
has 65,000 on it!
Nice big car. Lots of power from the
V8. Needs some minor interior design
improvements, but is loaded with
comforts, and just the standard Crown
Victoria model comes nicely equipped.
And, with my car being black, many
people mistake me for a police officer!
It's nice when people slow down and
Excellent family car. Saved our lives in auto crash on 3/1/02. Seat belts and air bags(both sides) worked perfect.
Averaged 27 mpg. Smooth ride. Safe car. Would like to own another just like the one I had.
