So I've been looking around for used cars. The last thread I made My mom agreed to get me a car as an 18th birthday/Christmas/Graduation present. The budget is kinda tight though. I'm looking for something that will give me a lot of car for the money. I'd like something decently fast, of course. Chicago gets some nasty winters, so I'm looking for something that does well in the snow too. I've been looking into a crown vic police interceptor. There are a couple dealerships in Chicago that I could buy one from. My best bet is probably to test drive one, but I'm looking for some opinions. I have heard lots of good things about them. They can take a beating, and they are made to last. I've also heard they have quite a bit of horsepower, and that they can really haul ass. I've also heard from people that they are really big and heavy, and as a result, they are extremely slow. Many people seem to think they are grandma cars. One of my concerns too, is the back seat. I won't be sitting back there, but I know that they make the back seat so that it's easy to clean. Is that the seat the comes with the car? How ugly/uncomfortable is it? Also, are the back door handles inoperable? It would be nice to hear some opinions from people who actually own one, or have driven one. I suspect that most of the people who badmouth them and call them grandma cars have never actually driven one. Thanks a lot!
