Review 3 of 140

Price Paid:  $0.00 from dealer

Year / Model Reviewed:
2006 Grand Marquis GS

Strengths:
trunk space.

Weaknesses:
Lack of power, auto trans, handles like a drunk elephant, brakes are about as good as using your feet, horrible interior, primitive engine and suspension, rear seat room, driving position, body on frame construction makes for rattles over bumps, the automatic constantly up shifts at horrible times, size makes it hard to park, styling looks to be the most boring design in the history of man, and rear mirror gets in your way all the time.

Summary:
OK so I was looking for a car to replace my beloved Saab 900 Turbo, it reached 200K miles and it was just time. I checked out the Grand Marquis at my Dad's request, he wanted me to get an american car this time. I tested a 2006 Grand Marquis GS. It was the worst car I had ever driven. First the car is big and heavy, over 4000lbs(bigger then most SUVS). I started to drive and realized that the V8 is the worst engine ever. My Saab had a 2.0L 4 cyl and produced almost as much hp as this car. It was slow and I was really afraid to get on the highway because I didnt think it was make it to speed in time. Seriously do no buy this car.

Review 5 of 140

Price Paid:  $16900.00 from Lakeview Ford

Year / Model Reviewed:
2004 Mercury Grand Marquis LS

Strengths:
The full frame offers a tight ride with no squeaks or rattles. The interior is spacious and well-built. The seats are wide, very comfortable and tilt back so you feel like your sitting in your Lazy Boy. The automatic climate control is awesome. My wife likes the adjustable pedals. The smallish 4.6L V8 engine is adequate and 4 speed transmission (same as in the F150) is smooth. Six quarts of "Mobil One" gives it better gas mileage than I expected from a car this size and better than the EPA estimate. Since I change my own oil, I figured I might as well spend a few more bucks and go full synthetic since Mercury specifies a synthetic blend anyway to acheive an EPA estimate 15/25 mpg. Mercury offers an amazing number of creature comforts that are standard equipment in the LS trim package. They have built this basic model for many years with refinements every year. From what I've seen, heard, read and experienced, the car is very durable and reliable. The 04 Grand Marquis was JD Power's award winner for overall quality in 2004.

Weaknesses:
This car does everything well and I would buy it again as is, however I think Ford should consider adding dual exhaust to all Grand Marquis models. It's offered as part of an optional "handling package" that includes a different rear end gear ratio and rear suspension and is meant to give the car a higher rate of acceleration from a standing start. Adding dual exhaust to the standard package would boost the smallish 4.6L V8's horsepower and increase gas mileage by allowing the engine to breath easier. Engine noise is more noticable in lower gears, but is not objectionable. The car's size was the reason I bought it, but it might be intimidating to some not used to driving something this big. As with most rear wheel drive vehicles, driving the Grand Marquis in the snow requires snow tires.

Summary:
I bought my used 04 Grand Marquis LS a year ago with 19,000 miles on it. It now has 29,000 miles on it with no repairs required and no complaints. It's image as the car only for retirees, police cars and taxis is unfortunate. This is a great car and should be recognized for what it is. A lot of car for the money.
