Is a Crown Vic a good car?
Overall a really good reliable vehicle. I’d spend the money and have it inspected first but if it’s a Crown Vic, it’s a good car – when everything is in order. It runs excellent and it has the power to pass any vehicle on the run. Smooth ride, not bad on gas on the highway.
