The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced that it has completed its investigation and determined that the Crown Victoria exceeded federal standards for fuel-system safety.
This occurred shortly after Ford announced a repair for the alleged fuel-tank bursting problems in Ford Crown Victoria police cruisers.
NHTSA said the car meets current federal standards that require a vehicle to withstand a rear crash at 30 miles per hour without leaking fuel. NHTSA also reported that the test vehicle didn’t leak any fuel when rear-ended at 50 mph.
