    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

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Lots of room, very reliable.

    Cons: Kind of plain.  Could accelerate faster.

    P71 Crown Vic Police Package — this is one of the most fun cars around. Fast powerful it doesnt even breathe hard on the interstate. No problems so far. huge trunk. barely fits in the garage though! Most people probably dont like the styling, but I love it

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Old police package car- great fun!

    Cons: putting it in the garage

    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.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

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

    Cons: 14 mpg gas prices suck

    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.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Durable; comfortable; very few and low repair costs

    Cons: Low MPG; half the IP lights failed; not user-friendly (i.e., radio out of reach)

    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.

    Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

    Pros: the perfomance and durability

    Cons: none

    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

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    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

    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.

    Pros: 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.

    Baby's Got Tasty Character — It's all about the fat American sedans for me. I like it because it goes against everything people want cars to be now; small, fuel efficient, and conformist. It is the last of the full size rear-wheel drive V8 sedan family. You gotta learn how to drive a car like this, you can't just gun the gas all the time and brake at the last minute like you could with a little toy car. It makes you think about using gas necessarily and makes you make better judgments about risky turns and stuff because its big and has lots of momentum.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: People fear me.

    Cons: Little things like wiper blades and the fact that its rarely been kept in a garage :'(

    P71 — With it being a former police car, it gets people attention. It handles decently for such a large car, and has decent straight line performance. At 124,000 miles, there are a few squeaks and rattles, but it's solid for the most part, being a full framed car, however, resale value is horrible on Crown Vics.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: performace, comfort, size

    Cons: Fuel milage, resale value, looks like a cop car
