2005 Ford Crown Victoria LX 4.6 from North America
Good, not great
Bearing in rear diff at 60K.
Several problems with A/C system since the car was new.
Lighting control module.
Accelerator pedal module.
Timing chain failure scrapped the motor at 205K.
Usual stuff like alternator, water pump...
Paint flaking off in sheets.
A good car -- not great.
Bought new and always taken care of. Regular oil changes and maintenance.
People say these cars go 300-500K, but that's a joke -- not without a whole team of mechanics!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I fully agree with you about these overrated cars.

Crown Vic's are excellent cars. Unfortunately you sometimes get a bad one.
I have had five Panther platform cars and one was bad.

All because your brother had a bad experience with one, compared to millions that didn't?

I have a T-bird with the 4.6 in it and I must say it's not the best, but it's an alright engine. Mine is tired at 222k, but still starting right up and driving, even getting over 20 MPG. Everything else with my Ford though borders on the crappy side.
