Pros: "Powerful, Reliable, Quick for its weight and size"

Cons: "Cant get up hills in winter, has that boat-feel."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"This car, a boat of a car, is a tank. It is a heavy, but powerful car. Even though it only has 200HP I have recorded my 0-60 at 7.5 seconds with the 4.6L V8 Automatic. RWD allows for some fun in the winters and on wet pavement (be careful during winter)."

"this is an excellent auto for a family with limited income. It is my second car, excess to my needs as a widower. Always garaged, never in a wreck, no known mechanical shortcoming, new battery, excellent air, good mileage...also would make an excellent taxi cab"

"The Crown Vic is a very reliable car. It's heavy and strong, and feels very safe to drive. It has lot's of room for five adults to ride very comfortably, and actually has seat belts for six people. The trunk is large enough to carry enough groceries to last a month for a family of seven. Plenty of power too, goes from 0 to 120 mph in about 11 seconds. Corners good with four riders,(if they haven't had too much to eat) and stops near a dime. Have you seen the Bourne series? These cars are awesome! True gas mileage is about 14 city, 20 highway. Why would 90% of the police in the U.S. drive this car for over a decade? Because it's a great car! If Ford still made them, they'd still be the #1 cop car. If you like big, fast cars that are affordable to drive and maintain, this is one of the best ever built."

"As every police force, taxi company, limo service, and military buyer knows, this is THE car. From its inception in 1979 to the final year, it is one of the most-improved and perfected designs in automotive history. Solid body on frame construction. Rear wheel drive. 50/50 weight distribution. Unbreakable drive train. When one considers that New York taxi companies would buy the police version of these cars from departments that considered them worn out, and then proceed to put another 400,000 miles on them, one can appreciate just how well-built these cars truly are. I bought mine 4 years ago with high mileage, and after getting it on the road, it has cost me $0 in repairs. I have never owned a car that has not cost me on average about $800 or more a year to keep it in good order. This Crown has cost...$0. That to me is simply unbelievable. The Crown was so good, that the aforementioned agencies shopping around to find a replacement car found....nothing. There is no replacement for the Crown Vic. So, everyone is using SUVs and trucks instead. The new cars are all too light duty, small, and expensive to fix. That includes the tauruses and chargers out there. With the Crown, you unbolted a body panel, and put another one on. With these lighter cars, a pit maneuver can bend the unibody."
