Best Answer

Currently the most common squad car is the Ford Crown Victoria. In my department we usually see the crown vics go out of service around 100k - 120k. At that time we will auction sell them. I would guess that in a hotter climate, say the desert, you are probably going to get less miliage out of squad cars because the heat is harder on them, the same might go for areas next to an ocean, salt isn't good for machinery.
