    1st review

    I like this vehicle alot. My dept. just recently changed our fleet from the Chev Impala to the Ford and I couldn't be happier. The Chev. was way to small compared to this vehicle..

    Great pick up, smooth ride and great braking features on this vehicle. This car starts off a bit slow but, when it opens up, get out of the way!

    I like my ford. However, we have had a lot of fuel related failures. Ford tells us it the fuel. I think theres more to it than fuel. They have are replacing fuel pumps.

    Ive driven a variety of diffrent police vehicles, but to this day I still believe the crown vic still has the most bang for the buck. And its got the power to back it up. These cars are just amazing for their shear size, comfort, reliability, and pickup and go. Im a GM guy but Ive gotta admit it that The Ford Crown Victoria can take a beating and keep on ticking out surpassing the V6 Chevy Impala.

    'Vickie'. Great sled. I have logged 10's of thousands of miles in these Fords with ne'er a problem. Gotta say, though, that the old Chevy Caprice with the de-tuned Corvette motor was an E-Ticket ride along with the old Dodges with the 440 Magnum.

    I retired in 1999 from the MNPD in Nashville and the Department was starting to purchase Chevrolets. They were too small for what they were needed. I have always liked the Ford Crown Vic...It has plenty of room for transporting prisoners, etc...The Ford gets my vote but I only give it 4 stars because there is always room for improvement for the men and women in BLUE....

    I drive an '05 crown vic, but I think its a great car! I saw someone mention the fuel pump issue, we had the same thing @ BSO (Broward, Fl). Other than that, no complaints. I wrapped one around a tree, looked like someone took a can opener to it, but I walked away with nothing thanks to the man upstairs and that car. it is a little slow outta the box, especially compared to the chargers we have, but once its rollin', look out. Lastly, don't know why Ford put that external antenna on the '05's but everyone must have told them it was stupid like I did, because they only did it that year.

    I love the Crown Vic, having depended on it to get me to calls for injured persons in crashes, and calls for armed suspects, this car gets up and goes, brakes very well, and has plenty of room to haul your gear, unlike the Chevy Impala. It maneuvers well too. It packs a V8 as well, which is very nice for those catching those speeders that are really hauling butt. I think the Charger is probably the only thing out there that will top this police fav.

    Can't say I love Crown Vic's. It seems that 2004 models and later tend to over heat and the A.C. breaks down. I had both problems. They change the fan motor and the tensioner for the over heating. With the A.C., they had to change the High and Low pressure switch. I know a Trooper that has a 2003 and everytime he does a 10-50 (traffic stop), he has to pop his hood. They can not find the problem. I want a Dodge Hemi!

    Crown Vic's have always been a good choice for manuverability and room.
    Sit low enough to the ground to take curves well. Lots of room in the rear seat.
    Trunk is a bit small but isn't it always!!!!

    I have been in Fords most of my LE career. I like the the 2007's I have about 7500 miles on mine now. They have made some good changes to the suspension and witht elarger wheels you have much less body roll than with some previous models. I have had to get used to the new seats with a full belt they were not very pleasant in the begining. They are a lot quicker and have a beter top end that the past few years. The only draw back I have noticed is the new steering set up in a hard corner while braking the steering gets really tight and can be a bit agitating while trying to call a pursuit on the radio and turn. This is a really great offering from Ford for a patrol vehicle.

    Still just a Crown Vic with a little extra. Historically depenable, but I've driven a lot of different cars, and a police car should be better. I've never been a Dodge fan, but it seems the Charger has what Ford needs, and looks like it just may run it over.

    We have so many mechanical problems with our Crown Vics. I can count numerous times in the past month that guys go to start their vehicles and the thing dies on them, leaving them stranded. I wish Chevy brought back a Caprice package for patrol units - only because I am a Chevy guy at heart.

    The Ford Crown vic is the staple of American police patrol cars. Since the demise of the Chevy caprice, the Crown Vic was the only really suitable everyday patrol car out there. Recently Dodge has offered the Charger & Chevy now offers the Tahoe. But the Crown vic has been the mainstay for many years. It is terrible in snow and the Chevy used to outrun it but it does what we need it to do day after day.

    The old standby. It's a pitifully "old" design, and you have to "standby" while going through to find a serviceable vehicle in the fleet! What a pile-o-cr*p. I have an Impala now, 3X the gas mileage, better acceleration and top end. I'm in North Idaho, and rear wheel drives are a BAD idea in the snow.

    I beg to differ, also, that there is any more noticeable room in the Crown Vic. I am 601 and 200 and am more comfortable in the Impala than in the Vic. There is also more room in the back for prisoners (I don't really care about that part).

    Anything but the Vic. They should have stopped making these in 1993. Even the Corvair was safer.

    I love the crown vic police interceptor. I have been involved in over 30 police chases with this vehicle in my years, and I have not lost a suspect yet. I have done things with this car, some by accident of course, that I did not think possible. Great control and turning. Wouldn't change a thing.

    The Crown Vic is by far the best overall well-rounded police vehicle. It has great leg room. I'm 6'4"
    and I still have room. No front wheel drive here. Just good old fashioned rear wheel. I like the look of the Charger, but it's a little cramped. The steering is tight and has plenty of power when you need it. I've been in plenty of chases and keeping up is not a problem. Ford shouln't change a thing but maybe some minor cosmetic appearances.

    My Dept. has only one 2007 Crown Vic but as with every one of the units I've had in 10 years they have all but one been Fords. I believe it is a very solid good all around vehicle that is affordable, OK on fuel mileage, and low cost to take care of. They do not excel in any one area but they provide a low cost solid platform for agencies that do not have huge budgets and will provide long service. Plus they are universally recognized as Police vehicles and the public recognizes them as such.

Some prefer the impalas: (They're ok, but for me, there's not enough interior room, I don't like front wheel drive, and they don't have adjustable pedals... some of the very reasons that I prefer the Crown Vics...). We're allegedly getting some Chargers this year. I'm looking forwrad to trying them out. I've had several pursuits in the Crown Vics. I like the way they handle.

    I have had several vehicle assigned to me - but none that I love as much as a Ford CVI. This vehicle combines the right amount of space, agility and power in a package that is as comfortable 8 hours into your tour as it was when you started.
    These cars are designed to take the daily abuse our job seems to dish out with little or no problems to speak of. This vehicle does maintain better road control in various weather & road conditions than the Chevy Impala or smaller Ford contenders. For those who drove the old "box" Caprice or Diplomats, this is as close as you can get in a modern package. The mph to mpg is somewhat better than the Dodge, althought the Dodge does give you a little more on the speed side. If properly spec'ed out and maintained, this vehicle will serve for years without any major issues.

    I love the Crown Victoria versus a Impala. I mean when it comes down to speed or size I prefer safety. My father while enroute to a call with lights but no sirens what side swiped by a lady in his older model crown vic. They had to use the jaws of life to get him out. The accident investigator said that if he would have been in a impala or intrepid he could have been killed or more seriously injured. I had driven crown vics for years now and prefer them they last longer and get a higher top end speed.

    I would like to rate this car higher, but the newer they get, the smaller they are on the inside. I am 6'10" and prefer the older 2003 crown vics in our fleet. Other than that, they are good cars. We just got a couple brand new models and they have had a few quirks from the start like CEL's and airbag lights but they were easily fixed. I just need something with more room.

    Good patrol vehicle. Do not let the RPMs get over 4000 for very long. Ours started acting up after quick take-offs and the dealer said that the computer would shut down the injectors after a few seconds of going over 4000 RPMs. Otherwise a great vehicle. Pretty roomy on the inside.

    I was issued a 2007 Crown Victoria in Feb. 2007. This is a great patrol unit in my opinion. I'm not a real fan of the speed limiter of 120mph. My old C/V was a 2002 and would run 135mph. When another officer calls for help....I don't even think 500mph would feel fast enough for me. I'm looking forward to drivng a Hemi Charger patrol unit. I've heard rumors that Ford will stop making the Crown Victoria in 2009? Anyone heard this information also??

    Great reliable car. Handles well and rides smooth. Also has plenty of room to haul all my crap around inside of it. The only issue I have found with Crown Vics is occasional electrical system problems. Other then that they are a great vehicle.

    I drive a 2007 Crown Victoria Police Package in the municipality that I work for. I have always driven Crown Vics, and this year is by far the best I have driven. The steering and suspension are fantastic. The suspension absorbs alot more road defects and rough terrain. The "get up and go" is again by far more impressive than the past years.

    I love this car all exept for one thing, the transmision shifts funny every once in a while and it allmost feels like it is slipping. I complained about it because I thought the transmision needed serviced and was told that was how Ford trannys shift. I did notice that it only does it in our cars 2006 model and newer the 2005 model doesnt do it. I would still pick this car anyday over an Impala or Charger and in my opinion it is the best overall pursuit cruiser out there to date.

    Having driven Caprice's, Crown Vic's and Mustang's, I can say the CVPI is a good overall patrol car. The Caprice was the "funnest" patrol car I had (when it wasn't overheating or the brakes failing after some spirited driving) and would get to it's top speed of 152 MPH pretty quick! However, the CVPI has always been a faithful ally of ours on the roads and I am going to be sad to see it end in model year 2011. The engine sure could use a compression boost, a kick-ass re-tuning of the computer and an upgraded throttle body, but it does alright once you get it above 60 MPH. I really like the seats, the fire suppression system, trunk space and the A/C. The brakes are top notch, too. Overall, a good patrol car.

    These were some of the worst cars I ever drove. Yes its big on the outside but when you put in all the equipment the interior becomes very small. I'm 5'11 and because of the prisoner shield I could not put the seat back as far as I needed it. Very uncomfortable to drive. I drove cars from a 1973 Plymouth to a 2005 crown vic. My favorite was my 1980 Gran Fury. It was the most comfortable car I ever patrolled in. You new guys don't know what big cars are and how much power was available.

    The 2007 is roomy car (as the older ones are) but that's about all the good I can say about it. I was given my brand new 2007 about 10 months ago and I have come to regret swapping out my old vic. 1st off it is slower to accelerate from a stop than my 2004 that I had. Secondly the brakes have gone out on it 2 times already. The suspension package is a sick joke. At least the seats are more comfortable than the old ones. We just started switching to Dodge Chargers (which are a superior car) and it makes the Ford appear substandard for police work. If Ford is going to build them like this maybe they should retire them while they have a good name.

I have had many cars in my 24 years in LE, from mustangs to chargers and everything in between. I am inlove with my 06 Charger (Hemi) but if I didn't have it. Give me a Crown Vic and I'll be happy. The worst one I ever have was a 89 Chevy capri, or it might have been the 06 chevy I had, hard to say chevy needs to stick to making trucks.

Good car for the south, in the north if you're driving in snow, i'd rather have front wheel or all wheel. the new 08/09 modles have a trac. control, but if your going up hill all it does is bogg down the engine and u still don't go anywhere.
