1993 Ford Crown Victoria LX 4.6 V-8 from North America


The best deal for a daily driver with a lot of options!


In the time that I have owned the car the only thing to go bad was the driver's side power window. But, I was able to fix it myself.

General Comments:

Out of all the cars I have had this is the most reliable and the best deal for the money. It has performance and style as well as good construction and mechanics.

I feel this is an affordable luxury car!


The shocks on the hood went out, so the hood won't stay up.

The temperature selector became loose.

General Comments:

This car is fabulous! It is so roomy and comfortable.

It has the greatest extras I have ever seen!

The engine is very strong! Under the hood this thing is a Lexus.

Like a Lexus?

This is a ford car with V8 muscle power, it shouldn't feel like a Toyota.

At 70,000 Km valve train becomes noisy. Dealer does gunk removal, claims noise is much less but I don't think so. Still makes a lot of noise. I've been told this is a great engine. Is that a fact??

Yes, it is a fact that it is a great engine. You just ran into a problem as any car owner eventually does. In fact most of the people who buy Crown Victoria's are very happy with them.

I guess a lot of it has to do with how your crown vic was used before you got it, generally the police cruisers run like a dream because they are maintained and babied by the police department. But if yours came from the Taxi's (most likely using propane or natural gas) then yes, as they just run them for as long as they go until they are no longer worth keeping.

I doubt that many police departments baby their Crown Victorias. Police departments used to use the Vic because it was durable. Even with heavy use, it would go 250 to 300 thousand. Wrecked cruisers and old units were used for parts, since many years used the same components, saving on repairs.
