1986 Ford Crown Victoria LX Review
Rides Like The Old Cadillacs — the car is easy to maintain and you dont need a dealer to service it. Everything unbolts easily . For its age , it is whisper quiet at 70 mph, with the windows up. The car has real bumpers that work well in 5 mph crashes. No dents as with the new cars with plastic wrappers. Brakes are very responsive being that they are not antilock, but they are easy to change. visability is a positive and cruise control is very accurate and responds well up hill . the 5.0 has plenty of power and the 3 speed with overdrive responds well .
Primary Use: Family transportation
Pros: the ride quality is beyond anything built today as it has a 114 in wheelbase and four coil springs . very comfortable
headroom is a little tight as im 6 ft tall and have to twist my heat to get into the drivers seat
