Best Bang for Your Buck

by MuFASA94 from Sparta, TN | December 18, 2013

I drove a base model Crown Vic from spring 2011 until just a few months ago, when I had it sold and got an 03 Corolla to save on gas while going back and forth to college. It had about 156,000 miles on the odo by then, but I think it could have gone 50,000 more at least. Granted it isn't the greatest looking sedan around, at least it has exterior styling unique enough to be easy to find in a parking lot. It can seat six people with tons of leg room, and interior styling is fairly straight forward, although some controls are a little awkward. Performance-wise, it's no luxury sports sedan, but it has enough power to climb up steep Tennessee hills and chug up to freeway speeds without breaking a sweat, and the handling and brakes are top notch. If you're looking for a good deal on a full size sedan, Crown Vics are the way to go:) Pros: Very comfortable, lots of interior/ trunk space, EXTREMELY good value for price Cons: Uses some gas, engine could have more power for its size, some controls oddly placed

Mileage

by Santa from Salem, Ohio | December 29, 2012

I got better mileage in my 1993 Crown Victoria than I am in this 1997 which was recently tuned up. I now understand why the previous owner sold it to get a better mileage car.

sounds alright

by Aussie HOLDEN Fan from Australia | September 3, 2011

If this car was in australia i would hate it! but because it is in usa i love it coz it is an ex policecar. Now you are probably confused Well let me explain in australia there is basically 2 car brands HOLDEN and ford (note physically) most people support their faviourate team but in the past few years since Peter Brock died (if you don't know who he is research him!!!) people don't care I suppose it is because he was the best racing car driver in the world thank God he raced for Holden! When I was living in Sydney (I now live in outback NSW) some guy who was driving a ford falcon was bashed after he stopped at the lights and a bloke in a holden commodore hopped out and smashed him =)
