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


After driving my dad's "new" 2007 Crown Vic LX I hit autotrader to see what kind of prices I could find on Vics.. I stumbled upon a 2005 LX Sport with moonroof, 32,xxx miles, priced at $12,750! Wow! What a car for a price like that! I've owned 1 front wheel drive car and driven many, I can't stand them.. Torque steer, odd weight distribution, hard on front tires, etc. The Crown Vic is perfection of a RWD full frame platform derived from YEARS of feedback being used in the most abusive of driving conditions, and boy did they ever get it right.

Best Features

RWD, V8, body on frame, watts link rear suspension with 4 outboard control arms, classic styling, refined suspension/steering, indestructible, and unmistakable on the road.

Worst Features

More power, firmer shifts, a little stiffer stabilizer bars, updated stereo with input jack, more bolstering in the front seats, fog/driving lights. I can always find something in a car that needs improvement. Sadly the Crown Vic's days are numbered with production ending in a year or so.
