Affordability was the biggest factor. The Crown Vic overall was a great car, the only one I have ever held onto for 12 years straight. I bought this car as a program car with 19,000 miles on it and sold it to a young college kid with 251,000 miles. Mile for mile it was the least expensive car to maintain. I currently own a 2004 Crown Vic Lx Sport and continue to love that as well.

1999 Crown Vic — Performance: Nothing special. Ride is very good. Very comfortable for long road trips. Build Quality: Great, 165,000 miles and still going strong. Appearance: Nothing special. Its not gorgeous, its not ugly..lol Cost of Qwnership: Pretty good. Gets 18-19mpg in town. 25-26mpg on the hwy. Not bad for a heavy V8 car. Fun Factor: Actually pretty fun car. People think its a Highway Patrol car and move out of your way..lol

Pros

Shes got a good bit of power good ride and enough room for my family

Cons

14 mpg gas prices suck

I Love It Great Car — The Ford Crown Victoria P71 is a great car. When you hit the gas the car moves, Hit the brake she stops. Maintenance and fuel mileage is a little costly at 14mpg but it is such a fun car to drive. I would highly recommend this car to anyone.

I've Kept All Maintenance Records On A Spreadsheet: Total Maintenance Costs: $3.4k; Avg/yr: $1.9k! — Incredibly durable! I've had two minor fender benders, and it still shows well! Other than basic maintenance (fluids, tires, batteries), she's had only two "major" repairs: the idle air control valve failed after 5 years ($200 repair) and, just a few months ago, the end links needed to be replaced ($200). That's it! No muffler/pipe replacements, no belts, no spark plugs, no starters, no alternators, etc!!! The only issues: 1) Half the instrument panel lights failed after 6 years(I drive with the lights on, and, if I had thought about it, would have dimmed the panel lights, at least during the day; repairs would probably be costly; if it ever fails completely, I'll tape something like LED Xmas lights to the outside (i.e., the side facing the driver). 2) The radio is too far for me to reach (I'm only 5'10", but keep the seat pretty far back for comfort (any closer, and my knees would hit the bottom of the steering column). 3) I constantly cut myself on the top of the trunk lid, which has a metal chrome (?) strip that is not flush with the trunk lid, itself (I've tried glue, tape, and screws, but nothing keeps it flush; over the years, I've just dealt with it as best as I could!). 4) After the seventh year, the cruise control failed slowly, then totally. I found out, accidentally (while hand-cleaning the engine compartment), that pulling the vacuum hose from the power distribution box seems to reset it. I've had to do it twice in the past 3 years.

Towing Is Great I Just Hauled A 2 Ton Load To The Scrapyard — well this is a retired Louisiana State police, police interceptor. i installed ford f-350 coil springs and shocks. It has paid off its cost of ownership. Yes this car is fun to drive and i would recommend this car to anyone.

Pros

as close as it gets to having a Sherman Tank pose as a fast sports sedan

Cons

looks like a cab and has zero style points if you're trying to impress someone

Confident, Capable, Solid - Zero Style — awesome car - miss it as much as I miss my BMW's and my Land Cruiser ... ticket proof ! Very comfy daily driver and super safety (one of the last body-on-frame cars made) Stang sourced motor got surprisingly good gas mileage (17/24 real world). Great long distance driver and lots of space too. Neighbors loved it for it's "presence" although it did cause it's own traffic jam whenever on Rt66 or I95 for people around you would slam on their brakes as you pulled up on them. I want to get another one - regardless of price, nothing can tpuch a P71 for being the ultimate battle cruiser (aka daily commuter) - Super strong construction - Highly evolved for what it is (Crown Vics have been in production uninterrupted for over 50 yearsso it has no issues to resolve) - P71's do not actually say "Crown Victoria" anywhere on the car (it does say Police Interceptor though) - Nicely subdued but performance sounding exhaust - Easiest car to own (I've had around 30 of them), easy to keep up and very durable AND reliable - most parts are cheap and easy to get. - Performance is very good for a large vehicle but it's size and mass means it is not going to handle like a Miata in an autocross

This car is cheap, fast, safe, easy to work on, and almost indestructible. Enough said.

Cons

I wish Ford put Cobra heads on these along with a tachometer.

1999 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor - 4.6 Sohc V8 — The 4.6 is one of the best motors ever built. Its a small v8 but if your willing to put in money you have the same HP potential as a big block. Not to mention the engines damn near indestructible. The P71 (police) Crown Victorias are significantly upgraded compared to a regular C.V. The police cars are lighter, they have a stiffer suspension, dual exhaust, aluminum driveshafts, transmission shift kits and a factory computer tune. Only thing i don't like is the interior, but hey, it's just a cop car/taxi. Nothing a Mercury Grand Marquis interior cant fix. Even though it may run, a mechanics car is NEVER finished.
