While driving at various times electrical problems occur, headlights will go out along with instrument panel. Sometimes the fan on will come on and will cut off even when it is off. When temp is cold heater blows cold air. Hot outside heats works. Ac works fine in both climates. Drivers side window will not come down in certain temperatures. Heads have low visibility and lens cover gets moisture inside. You have to drive at night with high beams to try and see at all. Suspension is definitely a problem on steering car has a swaying motion at times especially in warm weather popping, squeaky notices can also be heard. Vehicle has 92,000 actual miles but is becoming a hazard to drive. Vehicle has been inspected by a reputable repair service who states suspension looks good, parts have grease in joints, etc and heater problem everything was in specs. Large Ford dealership 35 miles away would not schedule an appointment due to car being an older model. If problems are not found, an accident is waiting to happen! note : electrical problems have been ongoing and have increasingly become worse.

The contact owns a 2000 Ford Crown Victoria. The contact stated that while driving 10 mph and attempting a turn, the passenger's side lower ball joint fractured. The vehicle was towed to an independent mechanic. The technician verified the failure and stated that it was due to the bolt joint not getting enough grease since it was not equipped with a grease fitting. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The VIN was not available. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure and current mileage was 150,000.

The right rear (passenger side) of the vehicle body continues to raise up higher than the left side. It is now about 5 inches higher. Have noticed this on other crown vic cars in metro area. Suspect a weak or broken spring.

My wife was on her way home from work and she called me saying that something was wrong with the car. She said it was swaying back and forth on the highway and was very difficult to drive. She made it home and pulled into the drive way. When she turned the steering wheel strait the front driver side of the car hit the ground. When I got home I looked at it and seen that the lower ball joint had come out of the socket. I looked up my vehicle online and seen that I wasn't the only one with this problem. Upon further inspection of my car I noticed there is no grease port to do regular greasing of the parts. As I looked closer to the socket I seen that the socket was completely dry. No grease at all in the joints. As I inspected the passenger side lower ball joint I noticed that is very close to failure also. I bought a new lower control arm hoping it would have a grease port and sure enough it doesn't. there is no way to do regular maintenance on the joints. So this part will have to be replaced over and over. And it is not cheap.

Steering will start to shake while driving, and controling vehicle will become difficult. Contacted dealer, and the dealer replaced and checked some parts on the vehicle, but problem still occurs.
