The Ford Crown Victoria is a luxury sedan that has enjoyed multiple iterations throughout Ford's history. Initially introduced as a two-door model between 1955 and 1956, the Crown Victoria nameplate was later used for all LTD sedans in North America from 1983 to 1991, with distinguishing stainless steel cladding on the V-pillars. After a 23-year hiatus, the Crown Victoria was reintroduced to the market in the 1980s, with sales beginning in 1991. These models were offered as either two- or four-door sedans, and a Lifeguard safety package was available as an option. As part of a significant restructuring, the Crown Victoria became a separate model line dedicated to mid-size and large models. The vehicle underwent several revisions throughout its production, including dashboard updates and engine modifications for lower trim levels and pricier variants. Despite never having a full-fledged hot-rod edition to avoid cannibalizing sales of other high-performance models, several redesigned versions were released. One of its standout years saw over 150,000 units sold in the UK, landing it in second place in the sales charts. The Crown Victoria retained the Panther chassis from the previous version but underwent significant updates for improved ride and handling characteristics, with modifications to the steering and suspension and the introduction of disc brakes on all four wheels. Available in Base and LX versions, the vehicle boasted standard features such as a one-key door opener, hidden radio antenna, rear fog filter, and tinted windows. The LX version offered optional automatic air conditioning and a JBL sound system.
Common problems tend to emerge with time and use, even in a robust vehicle like the Ford Crown Victoria. Many owners have reported issues with the engine, such as dramatically increased oil consumption, rough idling, power loss during acceleration, and unsettling ticking noises from the cylinder head. If you encounter similar signs, inspecting the rocker arm, exhaust valve, intake valve, spark plug, and rod bearing could be necessary. Another common issue is slipping transmission and failing suspension system, identified by indicators not matching the gear, difficulty removing the key from the ignition, intense vibrations while driving, uneven tire wear, and fluid leakage. These symptoms typically point to the need for an inspection of the shift cable and shock absorber. Besides these, the Crown Victoria also experiences wear in parts like the front and rear door strikers, often revealed through rattling doors or difficulty closing them. For safety, replacing these components promptly when they show signs of wear is advisable.
