Welcome and good luck on your search... closing in on one year ownership of a 2011 CVPI myself... Except for diff issues love it!

Thanx for the welcome.
black_vic yes comfortable ride, reliability and economy and
handling whilst pulling a trailer.
Is the town car not based on the same platform as the other two, vic.g marquis?
should I be asking these questions in a different sec of this forum?
many questions I have.

Same platform, just slightly different final assembly...and the body was mostly different. TC had an extended frame like the P70(taxi), softer suspension, rear air springs, etc.

The panther air suspension might not take well to towing, I don't have experience with that though. A good compromise might be the Grand Marquis which is more mileage and comfort oriented than the Interceptor Vic but may have a more towing-mod-oriented build than the TC. I think they both came with it as an option.

RE: new guy - oilhead - 01-08-2018 08:15 PM

I see,I have seen a fix or upgrade for the TC rear air bags, spring or something.
silly question, is it common knowledge that all p71s do not come with cruise control?
also the description of the TC is "easy to work on" what makes it so?
sorry, lots of questions

Welcome,It is common to find P71s with no cruise but easy to add from 2005 up.
