80,000 miles in Crown Vic LX Sport
By LX Sport Driver on


2002 Ford Crown Victoria LX 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Put the vehicle in service on January 1, 2002. Have just about 80,000 miles on it at this point. Of course have mounted new tires, replaced brake pads, replaced two windshields, tune up and normal maintenance. Ford replaced one sensor without charge. Nothing has broken. The vehicle is problem free. The car is no drag racer but for its size and weight its mid range acceleration is impressive. Handling, including braking, is very competent for a car this size. Even with the older steering (it is not rack and pinion) the feed back/control are fine. We get a lot of bad weather, i.e. snow, but the traction control and ABS helps. Not as good as AWD or front wheel drive but not bad for rear wheel drive.

Best Features

Handling, mid range performance, braking. Temperature control is easy to use and effective. Like the understated trim and color scheme. Interior comfort is OK. Full size spare is important to me as is the large truck space. Very competent vehicle.

Worst Features

Try to increase driver side leg room. It seems to me that the seat doesn't move back as far as in an older Crown Vic I had. Narrow front of console a bit to increase open width between driver side door and console. Twenty more horsepower would be nice.
