About Mercury Grand Marquis

This is it folks. If you want to drive a traditional six-passenger, rear-wheel-drive, live-rear-axle, body-on-frame, V8-engine four-door sedan, the Grand Marquis is the last one on the market. Mercury's luxury cruiser shared a common platform with the Ford Crown Victoria and, to a lesser degree, the Lincoln Town Car, both of which have been sent out to pasture. The Grand Marquis' Mercury bloodline gives it a more upscale appearance than the Crown Victoria, yet its price tag stays far south of last year's Town Car. The Grand Marquis' huge trunk is exactly what many golfers love about this car; that and its pillow-soft ride, wide and comfortable seats and easy-to-understand dash layout. And you absolutely cannot discount the relentless durability of these cars, as proven by millions and millions of miles of service in the brutally harsh treatment dished out by taxi fleets and law enforcement agencies.

"This car has only been driven by my wife and me. No pets or children were ever passengers. My wife has not driven for the past three years and I am 83 years old with three vehicles. The inside of this car is like new and there is a minor scratch on rear fender, almost unnoticeable. It is probably the best car that I have ever owned."

"Fancy? Fast? Fun to drive? No. It's none of those. It is however, a well-rounded, comfy, utilitarian, and exceptionally reliable car. Boot space is unsurpassed, as is room for those in the front seat. Leg and head space can be cramped in back for taller passengers, but compared to many other contemporary luxury and semi-luxury person-haulers, still offers a comparably comfortable back seat. When folks ask me about the car, I love to tell them about the reliability - 245,000 miles and yet not one single repair. I'm usually peeling folks up off the floor after they've fainted upon hearing of such unbelievable reliability from what has to be the most quintessentially American of cars. I'm often told of some miscellaneous part that had long been replaced on their (insert name of imported driving appliance here). Admittedly - my Grand Marquis was also imported (from Canada). Engineering wise - the car is stuck in yesteryear. Built upon a chassis introduced in 1978 for the 1979 model year, the Grand Marquis was fitted to the chassis for the first time in 1983, and last given a major redesign in 1992 - 19 years before production ended. When you consider how few vehicles live upon a single design with few changes over their production lifetime (The original VW Beetle comes to mind) while continuing to be viable and desirable among buyers when production ceased is a testament to how good the vehicles were. Personally, I wish the Mercury Grand Marquis could be manufactured forever, alas the rest of the automotive world has moved on, and so to will I - someday. I'm really glad to have been able to own one of these gems."

"Bought this car new in May 2009, the car only gets better with age. The ride is wonderful, very quiet, the seats area very comfortable.. I'm well over 6 foot tall and 250lbs, I am very comfortable. The engine and transmission are silky smooth.. you can cruise along at 75mph and give it some gas, the car will rear up and take off effortlessly. Great visibility, huge trunk.. comfortable and roomy back seats.. I feel very confident and safe in this car. I know it will always start and run without a problem. I have the car maintained according to schedule and detailed annually at my dealership. The car looks and runs like brand new.. it has become a trusted friend, I'm proud to be seen in it.. no uselss bells and whistles to break, just a great dependable, comfortable car in true American car tradition.. really wonderful Climate Control system and killer stereo..!"
