1993 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor 4.6L from North America
Lots of power, for little money
Both the engine and the transmission, needed to be replaced at short intervals, although the vehicle had close to 300,000kms, police driven.
The air conditioner blows only hot air, great during the Canadian winter, but useless and quite annoying in the summer.
Many other small, un noticeable, but sometimes really annoying problems, like the air bag light that always blinks.
Overall great car, great handling and speed, a real beast. I call it a 4 door Mustang. Too bad they don't come with manual transmission.
Even if I had some serious problems with this vehicle, also knowing it was used and abused by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, I was happy with its performance. Only payed $2,500US (at 250,000KMS) for it, which for a powerful, luxury sedan like this is not much at all.
I would like to make a friendly suggestion to anyone looking to get a Police Interceptor, if it has over 300,000kms don't even look at it unless it's a gift, or if you're a really good mechanic. This is of course the Canadian model.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
