Pros

Powerful, responsive 4.6lt V8 engine with dependable, long-lasting Michelin tires, and effective ABS brakes to halt the 2-ton heavy-weight; easy to maneuver with smaller, more fluid steering wheel.  Rebounds from dips and shifts into corners without shaking.  I've only had to get one of the horns replaced, and get the power window switch-box swapped out (which the warranty took care of).  It is very good looking--very bold, aggressive yet conservative and professional looking.  Gorgeous, spacious, comfortable leather interior with a combined analog and digital instrument cluster, great sounding audio system with AM/FM/Sirius satellite radio, MP3-compatible CD player and Dolby-System ready cassette player for iPod compatibility.  Convenient door dialing system, valet key and I added on LoJack and a Garmin StreetPilot c330.  Already came with convenient front and rear cup holders, front and rear lights and two DC power outlets.  Tons of trunk space and seats five without having to be an ugly SUV, truck, van or minivan.

Cons

Large size makes it difficult to park, surface street morning rush hour traffic in LA brings MPG down to 13, sometimes brakes don't disengage cruise control right away, Sirius sometimes loses signal (or can't find it) in the most unlikely spots.

The '06 And '07 Lx, The Finest Crown Victoria Ford Ever Made — Once GM stopped making the Caprice and RWD V8 Impalas in 1996, I had turned my attention to a few different cars in '06: a Chevrolet Malibu (Ford hadn't released the Fusion yet), a late 1990s Cadillac De Ville or either the Camero or Mustang; then later the Ford Crown Victoria once I'd seen some styles I'd liked (originally, I did not like the way the Crown Victoria looked). Ultimately, my need for trunk and interior to haul gear, a warranty, and low insurance premiums forced me to opt for the Crown Victoria rather than than a Malibu. Once I'd seen the beautiful instrument cluster on the Crown Victoria, and the $17k model with only 9,600 miles on it available in San Jose, I HAD to buy it on the spot.

Great Powerful Luxury Car! — Great car. It has 4.6L v8 but still gets 18-20 city and 26-30 hwy! Comfortable, not cramped. The build quality is amazing, especially since its a retired cop car that was taken care of. Its got heavy duty everything. From shocks to front brakes, and even upgraded engine parts and trans. The interior is very nice and simple. All plastic dash so easy to clean and bonus is a vinyl back seat which is great since I have dogs. This car is a blast to drive because of all the power and very nice to cruise down the freeway. Nice and quiet.

My Bronze Family Car — One of the best cars for road trips. Very comfortable with lots of space. They are powerful and yet yield fair economy. They are not the image of young drivers; they are driven mostly by big cops or old guys.

Looking For Another One Or It's Close Cousin A Grand Marquis — This is indeed the last of the Detroit Dinosaurs. In this case that is a very good thing. VERY comfortable ride, respectable power and 28 MPH. One of the best road trip cars ever made. I'm looking for another one right now only newer.

Why Police Interceptors Are Great! — Very solid, with no rattles, creaks or noise. Great ride. Performance - Great on the highway, pretty fast. Build Quality - Excellent. Appearance - Now that I have compounded and waxed it, it's great. Cost of Ownership - Buy a gas station. Other than that, super reliable. Fun Factor - No words can describe it... : )
