The Crown Vics are known to go over 300,000 miles and more easily

I sold my '92 Crown Victoria with over 420,000 miles on the odo to a lady in the neighborhood who was anxious to by it. I sold it to her reluctantly, because of the high mileage and because I didn't want to feel responsible if she had mechanical problems. That was over two years and I don't know how many miles ago, but I still see it running around the 'hood. I rebuilt the transmission once when I owned it. They seem to run forever if maintained.

Yes, I once owned a Fiat. It made my Austin Healy seem dependable!

Used to refuse taking them in for repair in garage / workshop .Remember the Lancias also for severe rust problems resulting in recall and scrappage offers to owners .Alfas as well notorious for reliability .But every country has their bad cars .
