Just saying hello. Have an '08 CVPI right now which has actually been one of the best cars I've owned... but I am having an itch for something with a little more get up and go. I love being able to drive my family places and drop my daughter off in the morning, so a 4 door is a must, but I don't have 30k+ lying around to drop on an SS. When I saw what the PPV cars are going for, I almost couldn't believe it. Just starting my search now, and going to start reading up.

Side note: anyone with first hand experience on interior size differences between the Crown Vic and the PPV? I had looked at Chargers, but frankly, I was kind of surprised at how not big the car was on the inside. I ain't a huge guy by any means (6'2 give or take), but the back seat felt mildly claustrophobic.

Thanks again, have a great day all.

-J

I've owned a few P71's over the years, and have had my 2012 Caprice 9C1 for about 6 months now. They're very different cars, the Crown Vic just feels like a much older design inside and out. On the one hand, the Vic feels more roomy up front for the driver because of the way the seats and dashboard are more of a "slab" design. The Caprice has a more modern-feeling cockpit with a dash and center console that sort of wrap around you. As far as rear room is concerned, most every passenger I've had has commented on the amazing amount of rear legroom. It's seriously on the same level as an S-class or long-wheelbase BMW.

Thanks for the input. It's funny I was commenting to my wife the other day when was commenting on something in my car, that for all intents and purposes, the car seems mostly unchanged from 99-2011. That being said, still one of the most comfortable cars I've ever driven. Hope the Caprice is just as comfortable as I love driving.

So what do your passengers say when you reply: "Yeah, that's the ride the perps get to jail. Nice, huh?" :lol:
