1989 Ford Crown Victoria LTD 5.0L 302 from North America
Great car. If they still made the '89, I would definitely buy it again
Well the first thing that has gone wrong is that my thermostat broke. I also have had to get a new alternator (bad alternators are common in this car). The inside interior and the outside are in pristine condition. Could not be better. She also shines up like a beaut.
Car cost, depending on where you go, is fairly cheap. If you know anything about this car, you can do most repairs yourself. I've flushed the radiator and changed out the thermostat myself. The thermostat is extremely hard to change in this car though, because of where the bottom bolt on the housing is located.
This car can be a good first car for most people if you get it in good running condition. For me, it wasn't too reliable to start out with, but I got it fixed up and she won't stop running.
The interior has a few small stains, but still looks very very nice.
If you get the car in good outside condition, then she will always shine up and look amazing. Once a month I wash and wax Frankenford (that's her name).
The engine needs to be scrubbed and cleaned badly, but it's not nearly as hard as some cars are.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
