  • Are seeing the beginning to the end of the CVPI?

    Ford phased out the civilian version, now with the Impala and especially the Charger, are we going to see an end to the CVPI? I don't know if it's fair to judge thousand of vehicles on two cars, but I know 2 people who own Chrysler 300Ms, and they both are having problems, but under 40K miles. They don't seem like reliable cars.

    (Man, what a horrible place to make a typo, my title!)

    I'm in my 20th year on the job and have been hearing for most of that the Ford is getting rid of the CV next year. Hasn't happened yet.

      Not as long as cops need trunk space for their toys. I've driven the Impala and it was ok, but its a little tight on me.

        The CV is adequate in this "no chase" era of Law Enforcement. It's relatively safe, reliable, comfortable, and since we've been driving it for 12 years, its familiar.

        But man, it couldn't catch a cold...

          I was thinking the same thing...ha. Two things are consistent in police work, you get a raise every year and the CV will always be around...

            uhmmmm....I went 9 years without a raise, so when is the CV going bye bye?

              I've never driven a Vic, so I wouldnt know anything about it. Had an Impala since the day I started. I'm supposed to be getting one, tho.

The difference, though, is that the sheepdog must not, cannot and will not ever harm the sheep. Any sheepdog who intentionally harms the lowliest little lamb will be punished and removed.

                At least that upside-down bathtub, they called the Chevy Caprice, is out of the mix.

                  wow, time to change jobs...I take it you guys don't have a union or a contract??? I'm not trying to rub it in, but we get yearly COLA increases that are negotiated by our unions.

                    To be fair we get COLA's but only at the discretion of the county commission(2-3% usually), I just don't consider that a pay raise.

                    No, we have no union reps, MO is a right to work state and we can be fired without cause at any time. It sounds a lot worse than it is, the Sheriff's (I've worked for 3) have never fired without cause.

                      Kieth, that's the funniest thing! I thought I was the only one that referred to that damned ugly Caprice as the upside-down bathtub!!

                        The basic design of the Crown Vic dates back to 1978. One could say the current model is a modern version of itself. I give it two years, max.

                          It probably makes money for Ford, and they can reliably move a bunch of them every year - police vehicles always need replacing. With a stable market, if it makes money, it won't go away.
                          For every one hundred men you send us,
                          Ten should not even be here.
                          Eighty are nothing but targets.
                          Nine of them are real fighters;
                          We are lucky to have them, they the battle make.
                          Ah, but the one. One of them is a warrior.
                          And he will bring the others back.

                            Right now, nothing is making money for Ford, or Chrysler, or GM. Ford builds the Crown Vic at its St Thomas, Ontario plant. It's a one-shift operation, i.e. running at 1/3 capacity. The plant also builds the Lincoln Town Car, whose sales have collapsed. I suspect the Lincoln, loaded with high-profit fripperies such as premium stereos, leather seats, and fancy carpets subsidises the police Crown Vics.

                            police vehicles always need replacing
                            Yeah, but with high gas prices we may be driving less and replacing cars less frequently.

                              This upside down bath tub doesn't look too bad

                              I remember hemicop was saying in another thread that they loved the Caprices.

                              It will be said to see the CVPI go if they do go in two or three years, but it is true, I am not seeing as much Towncars out on the road these days.
