"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."

"Although the car has 160000 miles it runs perfect, if you provide the regular maintenance (BTW very minimal) I could last for ever, my car is a P71 police interceptor. Is a V8 engine and it don't burn too much gas unless you goo full throttle too often, it rides very smooth."

"This is my second Crown Vic. It's big, comfortable, solid, quiet and powerful. This one has over 180K miles and drives like it's new. I sell books to libraries for a living, so I drive around with hundreds of pounds of book samples in the trunk. Then I take my customers to lunch, and they love the leather seats, comfort and feeling of security. Then I (modestly) exceed the speed limit to my next meeting. In the winter with studs all around, I can pass anything on the freeway. I cannot say enough good about this car."

"Have a 2003 for 2 years. My car was totaled, I borrowed the Crown Vic from mom. She bought a new car & said I could have it. Though I have driven it before I said no. After a week I told her thank you! I will drive this car till it dies. I'm 5' so I love the fact that the seat rises and the peddles forward. When we got it we were doing 98 mph and did not realize it which means it's a smooooth ride! Use at least 89% octane use get 18-19mpg (burbs). Only maintenance, no major repairs. She's a beast – safe & solid! Enjoy the ride!"
