Overall, how is the PI holding up under the constant demands of police work? I know your not police officers, but I thought I'd ask since many of you own the vehicles? How durable was the older 9C1 caprice?

frown Ouch!!!!

Boy that's No joke!!!...a good size deer or even a Dog can make a real mess of things!!!!....Especially with the way cars are built now with the enclosed Bumpers!!!...The current designs do tend to get expensive to fix due to Plastic lights fascia's and Composite materials....sure they bleed of energy nicely in a crash but if I were to meet a Deer etc. , I would feel much better doing so in my 88 P72 vs. my 93 P71... I know I can repair the 88 much cheaper depending on the area the said animal impacted the car......Allen
