"I never liked to drive my wife's '93 Grand Marquis but this 2001 has been really, really great! Handles really well--steering, braking, on side streets and interstates, too, and even more comfortable on trips than any of the newer models that we've rented after long flights from home (except for one Cadillac that was even better! I'd rather have that Cadillac but too much money.) We've got just under 70,000 on it and have only normal maintenance costs to pay--no repairs from very beginning, and none under warranty either, and no factory recalls, either. During almost 1,000,000 miles of driving between 1946 and 2014, has been the very best for comfort, handling, and cost of maintenance. And we average about 14-18 MPG around town and up to 32 highway (but not that in mountains). And that's why we're hoping to be able to keep driving it into our '90's (7 years to go for me)."

"My current 2006 Grand Marquis is my third, having owned a 2005 Ultimate and a 77 Grand w/ the 460 engine years ago. They were/are all good. Got over 100000 miles out of the 77 over a 10 period starting around 1988. A beast! And big, safe and reliable too. Picked up the Ultimate in 2008 when it had only 22K miles for $12200. Traded it in for a new XLT F-150 in 2011 and got more than $12 Thousand in trade plus $10 Thousand off the MSRP. Another good Ford deal, but discovered I am not really a truck guy. Now I am back to a 2006 LS Premium w/ only 40K miles. These are great cars, and they are often under-priced. Now that they don't make 'em anymore, maybe the price will go up. Comfortable, fairly economical, and safe as most anything out there. I am probably good for another 200K miles too."

Excellent automobile. Wish they still made them.

"I have had the car since it had 4800 miles on it. I have never had to have one thing, other than regular maintenance, done to the car. It's very comfortable and it still gets over 25 mpg on the highway. I wish they still made them I would buy a new one today."

"All tires replaced, new battery, clean interior, excellent exterior. Only scratches I see are on the hub caps of the tires. color depends on how the sun hits it. Seems gray then purple, color seems to change on how you see it. Real nice."

"I've had this car for twelve years, it had thirty thousand miles on it and now has a hundred thousand and it's been a great car every mile. I'm looking for the same make and model now in a newer car."
