Notes: It's the end of the road for the Crown Victoria as Ford announced it is discontinuing the iconic model at the end of the 2011 model year. While sales were still doing well, Ford realized it would have to spend hundreds of millions of dollars to update the decades-old Panther platform.

With the Crown Vic gone, Ford no longer has a v8 sedan for sale in the US for the first time in nearly 80 years.

Crown Victoria 8-cyl

  • 12,000 miles


My police department issued me a 2011 Ford Crown Victoria around September of 2011. Ever since, I have spent countless hours adjusting the seat in an attempt to keep my mid-lower back from hurting. I learned that there is a metal bar installed in the seat causing the issues. Once the bar is adjusted, the seats aren't as bad. I also have had a great amount of trouble with neck pain. I have since had to see a doctor about this. The head rests that are in the vehicle are causing my head to be pushed forward and straining the muscles in my neck. I'm shocked to learn that this hasn't already been a recall for Ford.

The headrests on the 2011 Ford Crown Victoria are causing the officers to have neck problems. The headrest is so large and does not adjust forward and backward, it is pushing their heads forward and down, as you know they spend at least 8 hours in their vehicles each shift. Since we have purchased the 2011 crown vics we have had nothing but complaints. It is very uncomfortable and unsafe for the officers to be driving under these conditions.

I am a detective with the belleville police department, NJ. We are having an ongoing problem with the Ford Crown Victoria 2011 police intertceptor with manual seats. All our officers are reporting lower back pain due to a lower back bolster built in as part of the seat. This bolster is not adjustable. Upon bringing this problem to our local fleet dealer, we were advised that it was the design of the seat, and that even if we wanted to replace these seats with the six way power seat for the same year we were advised that Ford and our insurance carrier would not allow it due to safety reasons. We have reached out to other police departments if they are having the same problem with these seats, and I am currently building a database of other departments. Please contact our department to be included. Thank you.
