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


When a car manufacturer makes a specific model for many years you can be relatively sure it will be problem free; such is the case with the Crown Victoria. The LX is quiet and smooth with decent acceleration, fine handling and semi-sporty looks. It's not a monster V8 with gobs of horsepower but has enough to merge effortlessly into traffic and quickly get up to speed. I bought the car to commute but also because of its FIVE STAR Safety ratings for front AND side impacts(with side air bag option). It also comes with built-in side impact beams on either side. The NHTSA rates it as the safest large sedan available. As a victim of two not-at-fault accidents safety is paramount to me.

Best Features

Side air-bags, stealth device (similar to a kill switch), alarm, huge trunk, conventional spare (not a mini), leather seating, back seat leg room, adjustable seating. Good visibility for a large vehicle.

Worst Features

Get rid of the plastic door handles. Maybe put a tachometer on the instrument panel.
