Absolutely Amazingly Comfortable Cruiser! — I've owned this vehicle for nearly two years, been in a serious accident, driven halfway across the country, and use this car as a daily driver. I love this ride. This car is especially nice because of the Sport LX option which comes with the more powerful V8. It is still the 4.6 that comes in any of the vehicles but it is more powerful with 240 hp and 280 ft lbs of torque. I have pulled off and capped the silencers on the intake, added a handported intake plenum w/ intake spacer, and have also added Magnaflow mufflers. I love the sound that the 4.6 2v makes being that it is the same block (essentially) out of the mustangs. I've changed the tires from the stock Michelins (real floaty and not stable) to Pirelli P-Zero Nero M+S. I have also added a stereo system which includes a head unit, kenwood speakers, and eclipse subwoofers. To be honest, I love this car. Great investment regardless of major depreciations in value.

Your Granddaddy's Crown Vic. The Quintessential Cop Car. — Big and bloated, and with a V8 that guzzles a lot of fuel. The interior is spacious, but not relative to its exterior size. So much space is wasted for the engine compartment and trunk. In terms of packaging, it is poorly laid out by modern standards. This 80s era Panther platform has been upgraded and refined over the years. Still, many full sized sedans run circles around it, including Ford's own Five Hundred and Taurus. But at least its body on frame design give it a strong floor pan to compensate for excessive body flexing. As a result, this sedan can tow a large boat. Not many of us youngsters love Crown Vics, but for those who do, they are fiercely loyal owners.

If It's Either This Or A Toyota, Think Of Both Crashing. — There is absolutely nothing special about this car; which is why I love it. Unlike the STS and the Boxter, there is more than only 2 cars identical to this. I call this a single crystal of brown sugar: one of a million, sweet but not the sweetest. Performance wise, this car is as mediocre as it looks, I'm pretty sure police supercharge theirs if they ever cared to keep up with anything else. But that's the thing, I don't drive this to go fast, I drive it actually to go slow. This was all I had when the Cadillac and the Porsche were both out of order, and I did not dislike it one bit. It's smooth, it's tough (not powerful), it's discretion at its finest, it's cheap to keep on the road (gas back home is cheaper than water, though), and that's what makes it the ultimate car of choice for the week (as long as I keep the other two for the weekends). It's a wife that doesn't mind a mistress.

2005 Crown Vic. Lx Police Interceptor — Performance- Pretty Basic 4.6L V8 police turbo charger (Not hooked up). Factory tuned everything. Cold air Intake. 4 wheel disk breaks. Average suspension. A hair unde 20,000 miles. Build Quality- Its a Ford so its durable. But the paint job isnt great. Appearace- Was an under cover Police Intercepter. Missing the fog light. Leather interior. Very clean. Costs- Not too bad on gas. Very inexpensive (only 6K). This is a fun car because you fool people in it!

Not Too Shabby — Its a plain Jane Police package Ford Crown Victoria, Nothing special yet. V-8 engine is powerful but needs a boost. Gasing this car up isn't cheap but it is a great cruising car. Has potential for more power and better looks.

Police Interceptor Package Is An Awesome Deal If You Can Get One — The Crown Victoria is well known as an old people's car or a cop car. Or, perhaps as a taxi. That's aboout it in a nutshell. But wait, there's that group of people who want a super heavy duty everything car that will hold 5 people, run a long time, has a trunk that can hold a month's groceries, or most of another family, and requires almost no maintenance. Yes, it does look like one or all of the above, but what a car. First off the Crown Victoria Police Interceptor, also known as the CVPI is not available to the general public. The closest thing available to regular fleets is the taxi and commercial model, which has most of the same equipment, but only has a single exhaust (239 HP vs 250) and doesn't have the 140 MPH calibrated speedometer. Of course you won't be getting it with the police lights, but that's another story. These vehicles have heavy duty everything. From the wheels, to the heavy duty frame, to steel bumper boxes rather than the crushable aluminum in your everyday driver. Transmission, power steering and engine oil coolers, as well as suspension that takes hits that would destroy normal vehicle parts fast. The CVPI and commercial/taxi vehicles do not differ much from the 2003-2007 model years, other than the wheel sizes (17 inch vs 16's for the earlier models)and some minor horsepower boosting. The closest thing in a civilian model is the LX Sport with the handling package which gives a reasonable ride and better interior and luxury. The CVPI is not a luxuruious car by any means, but it handles and drives great in any weather and will outlast just about any other full size car on the road. Check out the reviews of police cars on eBay by drcop2u, my seller name for lots more on these great vehicles.
