Is My Old Heap Still Reliable?
Our Lemonzeen is a 95 Crown Vic LX with 66,300 miles of which 66,275 are ours. All Original - belts, electronics, everything - cept the battery (2nd) and tires (2nd set) and wipers (yup- 2nd set). Performs superbly. Looks good, runs good, is good. But! It's 12 years old. This month. In California.
My interest is reliability. Tho the brakes are getting real close which isn't much, what really concerns me is all these things like O2 sensors and RPM counters and pollen sensors -and -and -uh -well what ever ad infinitus. Are they still reliable? Is this still a reliable heap for a couple in their 70's or a just damned old junker? Around town no sweat, of course, but cruising down the superslab or up in the mountains is another story.
Is it new car time?
