Need some advice
I'm new to this site and the reason I came here is i need some help from people familiar with the Crown Vic.
There is a 1988 Crown Vic LTD that I'm thinking about buying, the odometer says 35k but I'm going to assume that it's rolled over at least once. The body, trim, vinyl roof, rims and interior are all in excellent shape for it's age. It handles well, started up right away and i didn't hear any knocking or other nasty engine sounds.
It's obvious that the car has been well taken care of, but what concerns me most is the miles. Is the Crown Vic known for it's reliability? are parts hard to find for this car?
Like most in this economy, I'm on a very tight income. I need a reliable car that is within my price range and i would like to avoid a car that's know for nickle and dime problems or problems with the engine once it hits over 100k. I have to drive 35 miles daily to and from work, so this car would see a lot of driving.
Thank you for your time.
