1992 Ford Crown Victoria LX V8 of course! from Russia
Nice party cruiser!
First of all: the greatest problem is the age of a car. Everything in electric harness is failing slowly until replaced.
Brake caliper was jamming after 9 or 10 miles of driving. Caliper pins were bad. Replaced them along with a worn piston and seals. Problem fixed.
Anti-lock sensor on one wheel was torn away. Fixed.
Still having the "ANTI-LOCK" warning occasionally. Wire harness is corrupted somewhere.
Head gasket is leaking.
Engine is noisy. Timing chain tensioners or hydraulic valve adjusters are decaying over time.
EGR system fails. Too much carbon buildup and wire defects.
Rear axle is noisy. Main gears are worn.
Most of my car's defects can be traced to poor maintenance by previous owners. They simply had no chance to purchase spare parts for replacement. That's the reality for an american vehicle in Russia in 1990-th.
But I like it! It has a sufficient handling for a 'highway cruiser'. It has a plenty of acceleration and good top speed. It's not a sports car level, but much better then a typical European family Sedan. The greatest thing about a car is it's comfort and 'sofa-style'. Seven passengers (primary girls :) ) shared it with me while returning from a party. Most nice!
Reliability is great. Looks like it has a Terminator-style reliability. Half-destroyed it will still crouch. But you may just try to destroy it with some import hatchback. Wow! We'll look at it!
Driving is effortless. Very good. Perfect indeed!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
