Absolutely Amazingly Comfortable Cruiser! — I've owned this vehicle for nearly two years, been in a serious accident, driven halfway across the country, and use this car as a daily driver. I love this ride. This car is especially nice because of the Sport LX option which comes with the more powerful V8. It is still the 4.6 that comes in any of the vehicles but it is more powerful with 240 hp and 280 ft lbs of torque. I have pulled off and capped the silencers on the intake, added a handported intake plenum w/ intake spacer, and have also added Magnaflow mufflers. I love the sound that the 4.6 2v makes being that it is the same block (essentially) out of the mustangs. I've changed the tires from the stock Michelins (real floaty and not stable) to Pirelli P-Zero Nero M+S. I have also added a stereo system which includes a head unit, kenwood speakers, and eclipse subwoofers. To be honest, I love this car. Great investment regardless of major depreciations in value.

Pros: Comfortable ride, quiet interior, good power

Cons: Eats gas, body/mechanical work not cheap

Police Interceptor Package Is An Awesome Deal If You Can Get One —

The Crown Victoria is well known as an old people's car or a cop car. Or, perhaps as a taxi. That's aboout it in a nutshell. But wait, there's that group of people who want a super heavy duty everything car that will hold 5 people, run a long time, has a trunk that can hold a month's groceries, or most of another family, and requires almost no maintenance. Yes, it does look like one or all of the above, but what a car. First off the Crown Victoria Police Interceptor, also known as the CVPI is not available to the general public. The closest thing available to regular fleets is the taxi and commercial model, which has most of the same equipment, but only has a single exhaust (239 HP vs 250) and doesn't have the 140 MPH calibrated speedometer. Of course you won't be getting it with the police lights, but that's another story. These vehicles have heavy duty everything. From the wheels, to the heavy duty frame, to steel bumper boxes rather than the crushable aluminum in your everyday driver. Transmission, power steering and engine oil coolers, as well as suspension that takes hits that would destroy normal vehicle parts fast. The CVPI and commercial/taxi vehicles do not differ much from the 2003-2007 model years, other than the wheel sizes (17 inch vs 16's for the earlier models)and some minor horsepower boosting. The closest thing in a civilian model is the LX Sport with the handling package which gives a reasonable ride and better interior and luxury. The CVPI is not a luxuruious car by any means, but it handles and drives great in any weather and will outlast just about any other full size car on the road. Check out the reviews of police cars on eBay by drcop2u, my seller name for lots more on these great vehicles.

Miles Driven per Year:6

Pros: Almost indestructible, big, roomy, well built

Cons: You'll look like a cop or taxi whether you like it or not

Good Car For The Money — super dependable.. in 6yrs of ownership its never broken down & despite its looks it can rundown most cars on the road & hold its top end for as long as you have the nerve to press the pedal .also on the highway people tend to get out of your way because they think your a cop so if your in a hurry its the car to have...acres of leather but acres of car also ..thirsty in the city & a pain to park there.. in year 7 my a/c went out but other than that the car is still running strong ..no reason this car shouldn't hit 300k & i plan to keep it & see..

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: power  cost of ownership  great ride  lots of room

Cons: city gas mileage  driver leg room  very long car

Fun To Drive — It's a retired Crown Victoria Police Interceptor, powerful, but I think has been abused by cops. It says "premium only" on the gas cap door so I comply, I am an engineer myself I don't know why they would label it if not necessary

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Powerful, tight handling

Cons: Gas mileage and requires premium

05 Vic — I just bought it last week from a cab driver so it looks like a pretty beat up taxi. But there is no rust to be found, couple of creaks when it turns but i think that should stop when i upgrade my suspension. interior is pristine which is surprising because the car has been a taxi for 7 years. Bought the car for $1000 so i was positive that there was something wrong with it, but i haven't found anything to complain about yet. The car picks up very well. The brakes are a bit spongy but I'm replacing the stock discs with ventend and dimpled ones. I'm also installing euro style, smoked headlights and LED tailights in hope that they'll make the car stand out a bit more.

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

Pros: Fun to drive.

Cons: Its big, I have difficulty parking it in my garage. It attracts unwanted passengers lol.
