2006 Ford Crown Victoria LX 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

This is my third Crown Victoria since the current styling came in 1992. It is not very fancy, but it is very solid transportation. It has adequate power when needed. If you are trying to impress or need more performance, you probably shouldn't be driving this car.


Best Features

It is quiet and comfortable. It has a very safe feel. It will never be mistaken for a hotrod, but will leave many cars behind from a stop light.


Worst Features

I'm pretty tall (6'4") and my knee strikes the ashtray/cupholder when its pulled out. Design could be better. Also, the rear seat is huge, but has very little foot room when the front seats are back. It has no exterior antenna and radio reception could be better.

2006 Ford Crown Victoria LX 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Having been a GM guy all my life and owning a Chevy and 2 Oldsmobiles, I was a little hesitant to drive a Ford, having known nothing much about them. This car has suprised me. I find myself driving with the radio off just so I can hear the engine! This car has a serious road presence, and with my Michigan Sheriff front license plate, I find myself often stuck behind traffic doing exactly the speed limit! Mine is a loaded up LX, gently used with 19k on it. I picked it up for only $15k. It has a smooth ride, not too floaty, and not too stiff, and good road feel for such an old-fashioned car.


Best Features

The basic American car: rear-wheel drive, V-8, and a full frame! You'd- better-get-outta-my-way road presence.


Worst Features

More Marauder parts: front bumper and exhaust tips. Center floor console would be nice. Some controls too far to reach. More power or a standard police engine wouldn't hurt

2006 Ford Crown Victoria LX 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Bought new with most options installed including sport suspension. Used primarily for road trips. At 65mph on interstate highways with cruise control gets 26-29mpg. Good power accelerating to highways speeds, 6-way power seats ensure a comfortable ride. The trunk space is superior, it's amazing what you can put in it. The automatic air suspension allows for carrying extreme amounts of stuff while the car stays level and stable. For its size and weight, handling is exceptional.


Best Features

Comfort, stability, large trunk, highway mileage.

2006 Ford Crown Victoria LX 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

This is my 3rd Crown Vic. They have to be one of the greatest values out there. They are dirt cheap to insure (~$700/yr for FULL coverage) and maintain. Fuel economy is not outstanding, but decent (18mpg in typical suburban driving). The ride is supremely comfortable and the car handles respectably for its size. My 2nd CV (a '94) has NEVER had any mechanical trouble or been in for other than routine service. The reliability of these cars is amazing and comfort level is top notch.


Best Features

The quite, smooth ride and cavernous trunk.


Worst Features

More horsepower would be nice.

2006 Ford Crown Victoria LX 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

The positive factors including the low insurance costs, the smooth quiet ride, decent performance, and excellent crash ratings, make this AMERICAN car one sweet ride. I drive in excess of 50K per year so I'm always looking for the maximum car for the least amount of money. This ride is the best going is this category. I bought my slightly used 2006 LX with 11,000 miles for under $15,000. I average 25.5 miles per gallon.


Best Features

Large comfortable size, the good gas mileage, good acceleration, and excellent crash ratings.


Worst Features

The vehicle could use better cup holders and more storage compartments.
