1998 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor 4.6L from North America
A great way to get around.
Nothing major, the only repairs made were due to being hit by a deer last fall and a small tornado this past spring.
The fuel pump was replaced when I purchased the car from the state Highway Patrol. The service records that came with the car do show the turn signal lever replaced around 69K, again before I owned the car.
Otherwise other than tires, brakes and one battery (factory battery lasted seven years!) nothing has been repaired on this car.
I guess the only trouble spot so far has been the wheel covers, it has lost two in the thirteen months I've owned it. It drives a fair amount of gravel roads, so that may be part of the problem.
Very roomy, good on long trips. Fuel economy is decent for a V8 (low 20s). Will cruise 85+ mph all day with no problem. Interior none too fancy, although that is to be expected with a fleet car. Interior very durable though, still looks like new after use by cops and twenty-somethings. Trunk is huge, even with full-sized spare. Excellent value.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
