1998 Ford Crown Victoria 4 Dr STD SedanReview

Overall:

Fell In Love With It When I Sat In It. — This car was once a NH state cop car. It was then put on auction just under 100K miles, where the cop who drove it daily bought it and put a few more thousand miles on it. He then sold it, and after another owner, I happened upon it. The interior has some mark ups from when the electronics (laptop etc.) was hooked up to the dash; still can see the old holes for when the cage was in there. It's got a green paint job with the chrome package, and I took off the rims so it looks even sharper. Handles like a dream; it gets 22-25 miles per gallon, if you cruise her right.

Pros: The experience of driving a massive "boat".. people slowing down on the highway at night when they think you're a cop.. roaring down the road, it's just a great car. I love it.

Cons: I guess the gas mileage, but that's about it, and that's not even terrible.

Room For Six Not Counting The Trunk. — Big, roomy, scoots along pretty quickly. And gets decent mileage. I always wanted one and once I did I could not go back.

Pros: Nice V8

Cons: No shotgun standard.

Overall:

Wallowing Heap Of Junk - But I Loved It!! — Perfect in the US, where there'e plenty of space to park this 17 foot long beast, and it eats the miles on the highway while you can sit back... if fact almost lie back.... and relax. Handling was non-existant, performance was shambolic except if you put your foot down when you're already doing 60...you'll be pleasently surprised. Build quality also terrible. Th windows stopped working..then fell out! The tranmission juddered at certain speeds no matter what we did to fix it... I could go on but the list is long and boring. However I loved this car will all its fovballs. Huge boot, huge engine, easy to drive but also hugely dull (especially as ours was gold)

Pros: Easy & relaxing to drive

Cons: Everything else

1998 Ford Crown Victoria 4 Dr LX Sedan Review
says:
This car just keeps going, original starter,water pump, no failed ignition. Almost 20 years of reliable service and comfort. Part that have failed, 3 door window regulators, fuel pump and the alternator. Not bad in my opinion. This type of car is gone now, but many families, taxis, and police cars have done their job for many years.
