"This is the only car my wife and I have owned start to finish, having put all the miles on ourselves! Had a new engine put in @ 102,000 mi. and it rarely fails to crank, regardless of the weather. Drives like a dream on the hwy. Not so great on snow, to be sure! Will pass this one on to my teenage granddaughter soon."

"16 years later, what can you say. On our second motor, 5th set of tires (at least), and we're cheating the bank everyday she turns over. Always gave her lots of TLC, and obsessive care (to here my wife describe it!).Great vehicle, always dependable, have no doubt she could see 20 years of service ( has been promised to our oldest granddaughter!)."

Almost as old as I am--still going strong!

"My dad, being a dad, wanted my first car to be safe and reliable. So he found me a Crown Vic. We are the second owners of this car, and it was kept in excellent condition. I have loved the spaciousness of the car, the HUGE trunk (people joke about the number of corpses that can fit into it...), the reliability (I let it run bone dry of oil and coolant; I didn't realize until it shuddered and died; I filled them back up, and she's running as smooth as ever), and the comfort of the ride. The alternator died once, we replaced the battery, and have done normal maintenance, with no real issues from the car. I recommend this vehicle to anyone who doesn't mind feeding it!"
