A Buyer’s Guide to the 2007 Ford Crown Victoria

Ford Crown Victoria 2007

This enduring Ford classic enjoyed a nearly two-decade run before being discontinued from the retail market with the 2007 model-year being the last. Ever-popular with law enforcement (for whom models continued in production through 2011), and senior citizens, the roomy passenger space, cavernous trunk, and unbeatable combination of power with reasonable fuel economy kept sales of the Crown Vic healthy throughout most of its long production life.

Key Features

Creature comforts are the hallmark of the boat on wheels, with keyless entry, A/C, 8-way power driver’s chair, power accessories, tilt wheel, and cruise all included in the base version. Available upgrades leather upholstery, power adjusting pedals, power moon roof, and increased horsepower.

Changes for 2007

In the 2007 model year the Crown Victoria saw trimming of trims, so to speak, with just the base and LX available, along with the addition of AM/FM/CD stereo and optional Handling and Performance Package for the LX.

What We Like

The classic exterior styling remains timeless and elegant. Room for six means you can take the whole family along, and the smooth ride is dependable and soothing. In addition, and perhaps best of all, the Crown Vic’s durability has stood the test of time and a lot of wear and tear, witnessed by its extensive use as a police cruiser – which isn’t exactly the gentlest use of an automobile.

What Concerns Us

The braking and handling aren’t as athletic as some in its class, and the seats could use some lumbar support. The body-on-frame architecture prohibits independent suspension. This means that rougher terrain can cause the wheels to hop, although most people probably aren’t going to take this beast off-road. Just watch carefully for potholes.

Available Models

The 2007 Ford Crown Victoria is equipped with a 4.6L V8 4-speed automatic with Flex Fuel, 275 lb.-ft. of torque, 224 HP, and 13/17 mpg for E85 and 17/25 with gasoline.

The Premium Sport Handling and Performance Package boosts HP up to 239 and torque to 287.

Major Recalls

  • November 2006 – recall issued for possible improper windshield mounting. This could reduce passenger safety in the event of a crash, and allow moisture to enter the cabin.

  • April 2007 – recall issued due to possible reversal of front and rear brake lines. This could cause brake malfunction, increasing risk of an accident.

  • October 2013 – recall issued for potential corrosion inside the shaft of the steering wheel, presenting a risk of separation of the lower bearing which could result in loss of steering function.

  • November 2014 - recall issued due to concerns surfacing regarding repair of the previous steering shaft issue.

In all cases, Ford issued notices that the repairs would be made free of charge.

Most Common Issues

There are remarkably few complaints registered for this model. There have been a couple of incidents reported in which the gas pedal continued revving even after the brake was applied.
