2001 Ford Crown Victoria Sedan LX 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Car has the handling and performance package which I feel makes it lively and more fun to drive than the standard Crown Victoria. But, the car is far overdue for a complete update if Ford wants this last big cruiser to continue selling.


Best Features

Digital instumentation, automatic climate control, ABS, traction control.


Worst Features

Vehicle needs many improvements including stability control, better gas mileage, quieter ride, supportive seats.

2001 Ford Crown Victoria Sedan LX 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I bought this car with just over 21000 miles a little over a year ago. Great ride, great handling and excellent mileage for a V8. Now at about 45000 miles of mostly highway driving, the front end pops and squeaks like crazy and have already replaced the a/c unit.. Also, the CD changer croaked too.


Best Features

Ride, comfort, electronic dash.


Worst Features

Better build quality, you just don't have these issues out of Japanese cars

2001 Ford Crown Victoria Sedan 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I have had mine over a year and traded in a 98 Mercury GM. Will upgrade to a new one soon. I have the Police Package and still get 24-25 MPG.


Best Features

Power, comfort, security, great ride, good gas mileage, solid build, impressive for the price.


Worst Features

Ford still needs to work on the front end of the Crown Victoria. Am beginning to experience noisy tie rods, and ball joints with 27,000 miles on it.

2001 Ford Crown Victoria Sedan 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I bought one of the first CV Sport
Models in 01. It is comfortable and
sporty. Some women like it and some
hate it. Being single I would prefer
women like it. Its forboding and I
get kidded about it looking like a
police car. But what do they know!

It is a very sensible car and I
consider it a muscle car not unlike a
Mustang although most women would
perfer the Mustang.

Rides great and handles well with fair
gas milege.


Best Features

Over all look of the car and the floor shifter and chrome wheels.


Worst Features

Needs tach, wider tires, and better sound system. Steering could be a bit better.

Review

In the two years I've owned the CV its
been lots of trouble. Bad emission
sensors required a trip back to the
dealer within two weeks. Add to that
the occasional engine troubles and I
was mad enough. Last week the
serpentine sp? belt broke causing the
elctrical system to fail, the steering
to quit working completely, and the
engine to overheat. As for traction
in PA winters, they ought to rename
the CV to the Ford Death Sled. Couple
this with the exploding gas tank in
rear-end collisions (I haven't
experienced this personally) along
with the super bland exterior styling
and it's easy to see why people buy
Japanese.


Best Features

The V8 engine is nice and trunk space is plentiful. I've very comfortably driven 600 mile in a day. Rides wonderfully.


Worst Features

Quality is very poor. Poor traction in winter weather. The styling could use an upgrade. I feel like the car is conspiring against me.
