2003 Ford Crown Victoria 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Bought an 03 Crown Vic LX Sport for the trunk and low-tech V8. I'm young and wanted the sport for the console and more aggressive look. Have had only minor problems (brakes) in 70K miles. Did have to replace the AC control unit ($900) when it went out at 60K. Best mileage on a tank was 23, mostly highway. Tires are a little pricey. Also seems a little hard to control at speed in the wind.

Best Features

This car should go 200K no problem, and will probably keep it until about then. Trunk size and comfort reign supreme. Want RWD and size in an American car? This is your choice.

Worst Features

The trunk hinges should be European design and not interfere with items in the trunk when you close the lid. Should be able to lift windshield wipers to clean windshield without having to half-cycle them--wiper arms do not clear the hood. Also needs a vent/floor mix on the climate control.
