In the states, if the P71 comes from a small department, it may be in good shape when sold or given to another city department. But if from a large urban dept, they are pretty much shot when sold at auction

Many departments are beginning to use the FWD Chevy Impala. I have not heard much about how it is holding up.
Agree with you entirely, but the Dodge Stratus I heard got the new offical bid for cop car...just what I read somewhere...

They have one at Bromley Police Station and it is used as a chase car.. It often goes past my house doing about 90 in a 30 zone chasing another car (unsurprisingly... ) Except these are silver.. Actually most of the ones i hvae seen in London are silver... (Woohoo 600 posts!)

That isn't always true. Some state troopers have nicer pursuit vehicles. They use a Camero that has had an engine swap (LT-1 I believe) and chip the cars after that. I used to have a video from this chase in Georgia where they used the car to pursue a BMW M5.

OMG that is horrible! (IMO) Dodge Stratus??? Do we want our criminals to laugh at our law enforcement when they are arrested??

hey man I didn't bother to read the other threads and replies to this one but i can tell you that they haul man. they have interceptor engines that are specially designed, smog exempt and it's not exactly legal but who cares? but if it has something like 300,000 miles or something like that i'd steer clear.

Probably only smog exempt while owned and operated by the city/county/state...I don't think they remain smog exempt.
