    looking for a good vehicle for under 4K that's big, comfortable, and doesn't require much maintenance, so I'm think 06/07 crown Vic. Do any of you drive crown Vic's, if so, what can I expect?

    Jeff at Precinct One in Cartersville or the folks at Norh GA Auto sales in Acworth off of Lake Acworth are good to deal with here. You can expect ****ty mileage but a very good car if you buy from either of them. They sell directly from LE Auctions, and the cars are very well maintained.

    Thanks! Just tired of my 4bangers getting beat up on these city streets, and being cramped too.

    negeorgianegeorgia beat me to it and no offense but I'm shocked you did not know that.

    The good news is that many companies are stupid. U-Haul has(had?) a company wide ban on renting trailers to anyone who drives a Ford Explorer new, old, or under the years that it earned the nick name the Ford Exploder. However, you can rent with a Mercury Mountaineer or a Lincoln Aviator.

    So maybe you can drive a Mercury Marauder or a Mercury Grand Marquis. Also there's no reason you can't drive a Ford Fivehundred assuming it's as cheap as the Vic.

    This is no longer the deal with Uhaul, that changed in 2013, I have rented many a haul trailer with my 2014 Explorer and never had an issue.

    Oh wow, good look. I've seen people in them and assumed it was alright.

    Are you sure it wasn't a debadged/black out Marauder?

    Who knows though Uber's standards are in the toilet now a days. I can't tell you how many dented UberBlack and UberSUV vehicles I have seen around the airport.

    Maybe Uber doesn't want to trigger bad memories for riders :)

    Get an 06 Lincoln Town Car. Then you're safe.

    Uber doesn't want people to think we are the police when we drive up to their house and start a gunfight.... ;))
