2005 Ford Crown Victoria Sedan LX 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I am greatly disappointed on how this vehicle was cheapened. I owned the same vehicle seven years ago and it was a better vehicle.


Best Features

V-8 engine and size of vehicle.


Worst Features

Go back to a quality vehicle.

2005 Ford Crown Victoria Sedan LX 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Have owned several imports and would say I enjoy driving. The LX Sport is one of the best kept secrets out there. It is quick and with the handling package it corners like a lighter sportier import. 5 Star safety rating is a strong plus. Rear impact issues that used to haunt this model are mostly corrected. Car really likes to cruise and loves curves. Exceptional brakes!


Best Features

Handling and monotone look with Midnight Gray color. Reliability. Brakes are excellent .


Worst Features

Interior needs updating and engine could use more grunt as most imports are getting 300HP or more. Better sound system. Needs better tires.

2005 Ford Crown Victoria Sedan LX 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

All good - still have slight rattle in driver's door but I can live with it. This is my 3rd Crown Vic. I would of bought a Lincoln (which I also have owned, '3') but the price was right for the Vic. The dealer told me that after 2006 there would be no more Crown Vic's made. Then why a 2007?


Best Features

When windshield wipers are on so are lights. Being able to raise the pedals forward.


Worst Features

More leg room in back seat. Larger cup holder. Be able to raise the driver seat higher for short people. Get a women involved in designing. You can tell the Dodge Caravan used a women. Every thing inside shows a women's influence.

2005 Ford Crown Victoria Sedan LX 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

This is a brand new 2005 Police Interceptor with the 250 hp engine. Quick midrange performance, but slower off the line due to the curb weight. Outstanding response and handles like it's on rails. Very well balanced. Spartan interior but very comfortable buckets with power adjustment. Dual exhaust has a nice sound but is subdued at the same time. Same as the LX Sport except for the 11 hp increase.


Best Features

Handling and passing acceleration. Comfortable seating with nice visibility.


Worst Features

More horsepower for the cops is needed. Put the Marauder/Mustang GT DOHC 4.6L engine in it, for an additional 50 horses. This is a heavy car.

Review

Girlfriend hates it cause it's for old people or police. My opinion, I hate FWD cars. V8-RWD is the only way to go. Only car left around $30k is Crown Vic. Actually paid $28k for the LX Sport. Love the auto climate, huge bucket seats, and power everything. Soft yet firm ride with the sport package. This thing is a real cruiser. People get out of my way going down the highway. For the money and the options, you can't beat it. Luxury car options and size for mid-size import cost. Lots of room everywhere. If police trust them, so can I. No problems with downshifting going up mountains. Everybody I talk to likes the car. I would buy again!


Best Features

Auto Climate Control, seats, "Police Interceptor" response from people, Acceleration is average for the size and weight. Huge trunk, steering wheel audio controls, ride comfort.


Worst Features

Add a tach (which I think they did in '06 models), Mach audio option, satellite radio option, heated seats, and for LX Sport models, add upper register vents in armrest for backseat like in Explorer/Expedition for AC/heat to get the air everywhere in that big cabin.
