Crown Victoria

  • Automatic transmission
  • 38,938 miles
The engine in my 2000 Crown Victoria stalled at a stop sign, and I lost the power steering and power brakes. The car turned into a tank and could not be controlled. It was extremely scary because I could have hit some innocent people which would have meant another lawsuit for Ford. I had to put one foot on the brake and one foot on the accelerator to get the car to an auto service center. At 38,938 miles, the car needed a new idle speed control motor, air filter, and mass air flow sensor. I believe that these parts were defective and wrote a letter to william clay Ford, the chairman of Ford Motor Company. While the car was still under warranty, the overdrive switch had to be replaced because the warning light would not go off. I felt that there should have been no charge, but the dealer charged me $200 for labor. I believe that this car is an Ontario-built Monday morning lemon and will never buy another Ford automobile.
