1995 Ford Crown Victoria LX 4.6 Liter V8 from North America


Excellent car. Ford you did a good job when you made this car!!!


Right after we got the car at 7200 miles, the torque converter went, but was still under warranty and the dealer fixed.

Replaced ball joint at 95000 miles.

ABS light came on, and the brakes would moan really bad. Would not stop at all at 102000 miles. Took it to the garage and they told us what the problem was, and that if we didn't want to fix it, we could just pull the plug, so that's what we did, and as a result had no ABS.

Had to replace the left rear side brakes twice because the caliper stuck.

Oxygen sensor went at 100000 miles.

Other than that, which are all minor issues, nothing has gone wrong at all, and I mean that.

Hit a deer at 129000 miles. Insurance company totaled. Otherwise we would still have it today.

General Comments:

This car was excellent. Rode like a dream, handled excellently, had tremendous amounts of power.

Only re-aligned the brakes once the entire time we owned the car.

Excellent; Ford did a good job when they made this car.

When this car hits the ground, I will have another


I had to replace the headlight globes as they were oxidized.

Ball joints at 200,000 miles.

General Comments:

I love this car to pieces. I feel like a king when I drive on the highway... I also like the cautious looks as I sport my gargoyle mirror sun glasses.

The performance is supreme, handling is awesome, and it has the ability to take all the family and gear.

Nice ride


I had to replace the ball joints.

General Comments:

I purchased my 1995 Crown Victoria in 2001, and have spent less than $800.00 in seven years on maintenance.

This has been the best car I have ever owned, and I was considering buying a Lincoln LS until reading some of the reviews.

I am most likely going to buy a 2001 or newer Mercury Grand Marquis after reading these reviews, and decided to write my own.

They float like a boat, and the ride is so smooth. I have not had a car payment for 2 years, and when I did, it was 175.00 for four years.

I bought it for $5500 in 2001. It had 55,000 miles on it. I know many people think it is an old person's car, but if you are going for reliability, buy one!!

Transmission started jumping up and down from low to high gear causing the car to surge and slip into nuetral , Took it to a trans. shop and they installed a rebuilt trans, It did the same thing, Come to find out it was wires from computer to the trans. Rats or mice had chewed on causing a short. I cannot blame this on the car, That would go to an 1800.00 mouse. I bought the car at auction for 1800.00 in 02,with 104k miles. on it, I have put 80k on it and it still does not use a drop of oil. I can say that this is the best, most dependable I have ever owned. I had new cats.+ flow master exhaust installed which gives it a really nice exhaust tone and really opened up the performance of this car. Its white with tan cloth int. These cars are worth maintaining to the highest level, They are very rewarding and a pleasure to drive. I wouldn't sell it for what book value is on it, Not even close to what I feel its worth, If you get a good one that isn't beat up or abused, You will have a very special car.

I totally agree with you. I had two 1995 police package Crown Vics and they are by far the best cars I have owned. One was a red unmarked car driven by a detective and the other was from the highway patrol. I only parted with them because my wife and I got greedy and wanted to buy new cars after many years of working through college. What's worse is the new cars we purchased weren't Crown Vics. I drive a 2007 Mustang GT and my wife has a 2006 Chrysler 300 C. These cars may beat the Crown Vics in acceleration and top speed, but they are not nearly as comfortable and easy to maintain.

If we were still driving our Crown Vics today they would still be going strong with over 300,000 miles on them and I would have a lot more money in my bank account not being saddled with car payments and higher insurance premiums. My dad still has his 1995 P71 with 165,000 miles on it and it still runs like a champ. His wasn't used as a patrol car and he bought it when it was only two years old with just over 30,000 miles on it. He was the smart one in keeping his car. I would like to buy another police Crown Vic before Ford stops building them. However, I really liked the 1995's because they felt like they were more quality built. I mean that when you look at the overall interior. For some reason the engine on the 1995's were smoother and quieter. All other year models have noisier engines. How I wish I could turn back time! Anyway, they're great cars and a great pleasure to own and drive. It's Ford's best kept secret.
