1994 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor 4.6 SOHC from North America
Great car, low price, very dependable thus far
The odometer died at 137099 miles, and stuck before that.
The front seat belts don't retract (i believe they're just twisted) but lock up just fine on fast stops and the accident I was in.
The steering has a little play, but nothing major and doesn't affect driving/handling at all.
The engine shows know signs of it (besides the dipstick) but it uses some oil. not really a problem so long as its monitored.
This is a very nice car, I'm satisfied overall with it. It is well used, being an ex-police car, but still drives like a much newer vehicle.
The drivetrain is tight with power to spare. The transmission shifts smooth, though I'd be happier if the shift from first to second didn't rev so high. (this is standard to all the vics I've driven/been in, which is more than a couple)
Driving the car in the city is interesting sometimes because it is a very large car, but it handles turns and fast maneuvering well. On the highway it handles like a champ and shows no effort even when taken up to 90+ mph.
I'd buy another car like this one again, and I'm a Ford guy at heart so it'd likely be another interceptor.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
