Buy A Police Car! — You can never go wrong with owning a Crown Vic. One of the most reliable cars on the road, in my opinion. Ive driven many as a former police officer and owned several as a private citizen. The only car I feel safe in. Currently own a 2000 and a 2011.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Safe and reliable

Cons: Only gets 18 mpg

Very Basic Car — I didnt mind this car. It was cheap to buy, cheap to maintain and there have not been many problems with this vehicle. Recently went through and rebuilt the entire front end of the vehicle including all rear end suspension parts and the total came to somewhere around 700 dollars including a new steering box. Cant complain, its at 210K right now and still runs like when i bought it with 120K on it. Very reliable car.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great car, cheap to get and cheap to maintain. Cant get better than that.

Cons: Not a very stylish car but it gets you from point A to B

It Is A Very Fun Car!!! — This car has very good handling, okay braking, and great acceleration. The car needs new tires, breaks, and a few minor exterior things. The car is very clean inside and out. It Gets 12 miles to the gallon and costs 50$ to fill a full tank. This car is very fun to mess around in and gets a little sketchie around 135 mph.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: The car is very fast and fun to drive.

Cons: I don't like that the breaks are squeaking and that the headlights are foggy.

Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor —

Alright, when talking about an old Interceptor, there is much to discuss. But as this is about specifics, I'll try to be concise. Performance wise, this car is adequate for nearly everything. 250hp or so means that the car is not slow, but 4200lbs means that it is not amazingly quick either. Acceleration wise, you're looking at about the same 0-60s as a V6 Mustang. Brakes (discs all round) work just fine, as long as you make sure you've got enough brake fluid, and even if you don't have ABS they stop in about as much time as you'd expect for a car of it's size. The CVPI is over 17 feet long, and most of the time it doesn't let you forget that. Around certain bends, however, it can feel like a smaller car, and doesn't object to being thrown around a bit. At over 9 years old, mine has developed the characteristic Ford Squeak, but that's only noticeable over bumps when the stereo is off. Rattling is at a minimum, essentially nonexistent. From the outside it looks mean, scary, etc. From the inside, spacious but a bit spartan. Plastic abounds, with vinyl floors, vinyl dash, vinyl back seats. The P71 has bucket seats, unlike your standard Crown Vic, which means that with the column-mounted shifter, an aftermarket centre console is a good buy. While it may be a cheap car to buy, the running costs are not quite so stellar, with a 19 gallon tank that empties after not much more than 300 miles of steady highway driving. It doesn't break down much, and if it does, parts are plentiful and cheap and quick repairs are easily done on your own. Fun is a more difficult question. Driving itself is not hugely exciting, as what it is is a slightly tuned huge American retiree-mobile. It's fast but not quick, safe, solid, but a bit wallowy round the corners. Most of the enjoyment stems from the scared looks of people you pass, the fact that everyone gets out of your way, and that you can do pretty much whatever the hell you want and people won't use their horn. Just don't be tempted to put a light bar on the top.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Cool as hell, spacious, lots of power and torque, reliable enough, but when that fails, easy to fix.

Cons: 16mpg on a good day, very large, gets noticed by the wrong people.

Great Car, Unlike Any Other, Still Wish I Had A Mustang Gt, But It'll Do For Now. — Very roomy car, can seat 6 if you get the front bench seat. Great build quality, extremely reliable. Lots of fun, burnouts and donuts are so easy to do with it. Great for packing up friends and heading somewhere, cruising, doing donuts, smoking Civics, etc.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Fun and comfortable.

Cons: Fuel economy, big, can be hard to park.

Its Well Built, Its Never Let Me Down, And Its Stood The Test Of Time. — I like everything about my car. Its powerful, handles good, and looks awesome. My only dislike is a nickel size rust spot starting under the paint in the front Driver side fender. Other than that, this car is still brand new.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Its safe. My first one saved my life

Cons: People think your a wannabe cop

2000 P71 — This is a great car. It's not as powerful as my first car, but it holds its own. It has the "Police Interceptor P71 4.6 V8", which is pretty good performance but still no Mustang. Don't get me wrong, it'll haul like nobody's business. It''s very good build quality. Strong. Built Ford tough. This car has a very sinister look with the black on black (ignore the pink tree in the background) and it's respectable. The cost of ownership is very cheap if you don't consider the mileage (which would probably be better if I didn't appreciate the V8 under the hood) It's a fun car to drive with accurate, responsive handling.

Pros: It's a V8. Absolutely AMAZING interior.

Cons: Not more power.
