Squad Cars: Impala & Crown Vic Out?

I'm told around here they dump the Vics early not because of frame issues but because the engines give way around 60k to 80k. They also have been noticing alot of squeeks and groans early on with the Vics.

By comparison we still have Caprices running around with almost 200k.

If these things hold up it will go a long way in helping DC's quality image. NY State has major beef with Ford over the gas tanks, I believe at least 4 police officers statewide were killed in fires and in Jersey power steering issues have cause a few deadly wrecks in the CV's.Im guessing the magnum will also see NYPD duty, More trunk space, Now they can dump the Explorers.

Caprices are still the best squad cars despite their age and the fact they haven't been made in a decade. Crown Vics are tame & lame by comparison.
