I recently purchased a CV LX Sport from a dealer listing on Cars.com. This car is what people would call a "boat" to drive but in a good way. It does not like to turn but runs fast in smooth going straight. It loves highway driving and will turn those country-bumkin pothole-ridden northeast roads into some of the smoothest sailing you've ever experienced. The air-ride suspension helps to alleviate some of the crashing experienced when driving a car as heavy as this over bumpy roads. The 4.6L V8 also does a fantastic job getting you to highway speeds in a timely manner and keeping you there without stressing the engine. Unlike most heavy cars that do not like to remain at high speed, the CV LX Sport actually prefers the far left lane as much as possible and the ride gets more and more smooth as the speed increases. City driving is not the greatest as the 20' turning radius and extra long nose and rear end are tough to feel out initially but, as with all cars, the more you drive it, the more you get to know where all of the corners are and what freedoms you do and don't have in tight spaces. All around, probably the best car I'll ever own.

this is a police cruiser and has some scratches and a few small dings, its comfortable and holds well in turns and acceleration, it does drink a bit more gas that other cars, but if you drive a bit less aggressive you can miser a few more miles per gallon. little squeaks here and there from the breaks but nothing unusual. Nice ride and comfort in the seats. big trunk gona miss this car when they are all gone, ford needs to look at bringing back the crown vic.

If you're looking for a car to drive 300,000+ miles, you've found your vehicle. I have the HPP model (dual exhaust 3.27 gears, bigger sway bars, heavier springs, and rear air suspension). I installed a Marauder intake and MAF along with a police interceptor zip tube with a Xcalibrator tune from Blue Oval Chips. The car FLIES and handles. Seats 6, easily eats 800 miles a day with ease. I get 26mpg on the highway and average around 18 in the city. The regular model has 2.73 gears and gets almost 30 on the highway. Oh, and the car has presence on the road. People are very courteous to me on the road (here in Washington, DC). I think it's a conditioned response because they're used to submitting to the authority of a police car. I LOVE this car.

The exterior styling is ubiquitous cop/cab. The interior is roomy but there's nothing fancy in there. The plastic looks okay. Generally speaking, these cars have no amenities-mine has air and a four speaker am/fm stereo plus power windows and locks. No cruise, compass, climate control, remote entry, automatic headlights, leather, console. it's stripped. HOWEVER, if you've always wanted to drive a car with an unbelievalbe engine/transmission/suspension package, buy a CV Police interceptor. When it comes to handling, this car is ridiculously good. it's frankly indescribably in words. You have to drive it to appreciate it. An old cop car is indeed a driver's dream. It's a $4,000 car with a $40,000 suspension system. If that's what you're looking for, this car is for you. Plus when maintained, they run forever. I just hope gas stays below $4.00 a gallon.

I Test Drove several cars before I got to the Ford Focus. I didn't even want to test drive it, because I wasn't looking for what I considered to be an economy car. My car has leather interior, heated mirrors and seats, a 6 disc changer and mp3 player, and lots of other cool things all for under $20,000. I've had the car for about 2 years, and I don't have any complaints. This is an excellent vehicle if you like nice things, and you're on a budget.
