2004 Ford Crown Victoria P71 Police Interceptor 4.6
It's an awesome, extremely reliable car
Only thing I've done to the car in entire time I've owned it, and put right at 80,000 miles on it, was the plastic intake manifold cracked. We put around 130k miles on it. Other than that, just basic maintenance like brake pads, spark plugs and plug boots, air filter and fuel filter, always synthetic oil and Motorcraft filter. A lot of that stuff I just changed for peace of mind. I'm an ASE technician, so I keep my car maintained.
It is a great car to own. Fun to drive, extremely reliable, low maintenance, good on gas (between 19-24 MPG depending on where you drive, around town or interstate).
The A/C will freeze you out and the heat will cook you. All the electric windows, locks, seats, mirrors, and even the lumbar in the seat works. I'm sure this was a detective's car, given how clean it is and how well it was taken care of.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
