    1st review

    I have driven it for a patrol vehicle since 2000 and aside from some changes over the years that i may not have agreed with, it continues to do the job day in and day out. The reason i gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is because i have not driven the Dodge Chargers yet for comparison. The Chevy Impalas don't hold a candle to the Crown Vic and our Tahoes were always junk.

    I'll take one of these. Impala's are too small. Tahoes are okay for some things. I think a "Police Presence" is needed.... so they don't think they have a chance to get away.

    Ford has proved itself here. A reliable vehicle and mobile office platform. Where are the old Dodge Diplomats, that was the first patrol car I drove. Now I get to look forward to a Dodge Charger, well maybe next year.

    This car stands up to a beating every time it goes out on patrol usually running non-stop for a typical ten hour shift every day, and sometimes not even taking a break for a second serving during shift change. These cars perform and handle exceptionally, but Dodge is catching up with its Charger which is slowly becoming more popular with many agencies and the upcoming Carbon Motors E7 which is expected to eliminate at least half of the current police cars within ten years nationwide. The future of law enforcement looks promising but I will always keep this car in my heart. Don't have any complaints about this car whatsoever and it has been a joy to drive.

    My patrol car is a 05 and still does the job.

    The Crown Vics are tried and true, PERIOD! Love that V-8 roar as well.

    I guess you could say I'm old fashioned. Give me a Crown Vic any day. I find the handling a lot better than the Dodge Charger, but that's just me.

    First and best car that I've had as a patrol officer. It demands respect and will take the abuse that you give it. Just keep the oil changed and fill her up.
