NHTSA Assures Public on Crown Victoria

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.
