We are considering a 2016, currently have a 2005. Are there any concerns we should be worried about? We have noticed quite a few for sale with less than 50,000 miles on them.

As an owner of a 16, I can say that other than a few minor things, which we haven’t experienced, they’re fine.

Vibration in the 15s was a problem that is fixed by the dealers.

The navigation system is poor, but so is just about every other brand. So Don’t pay more, or look for one with Nav.

The oil problems were typically in the earlier and later models. I’m sure somebody’s had a problem with a 15 or 16 though.

Some people have problems with the brakes wearing out quickly, frequently they live in places where the roads are salted, causing them to rust and stick.

Sometimes the rear tires wear quickly, this means it probably needs a 4 wheel alignment.

With the popularity of leasing, I'm sure that the large number of '16s that are available is due to the fact that many are coming off-lease.

I'd look for records of consistent oil changes and other maintenance (just like with any other used car). I've known some lessees (sp?) that never TOUCH their cars, you don't want a car that has been run low on oil.

My wife has thoroughly enjoyed hers. She did, however, complain about a faint grumbling from the brakes after getting back from a brief road trip a couple of days ago (6 hours round trip). Mileage is just under 50k. I'll be taking off a front wheel later today to investigate. Other than this, we've had zero issues. I like this vehicle so much, I want one (I'll sure miss my '03 Crown Vic though).
