We are concerned to drive our crown vic because of the alleged fuel tank problems. We live in phoenix, AZ, and in the past three years four police officers have been either killed or severly injured due to collisions that resulted in the fuel tank catching fire. We would like to know what Ford Motor Co. Plans to do about this. Is our crown vic safe to drive" if not, what do we need to do" if we retrofit the gas tank right now, we will void our warrenty. We are in a quandry as to what to do.
