The Grand Boat
By Debbie on
1990 Mercury Grand Marquis GS 4dr Sedan
Bought from my brother in 1996 who bought it new--he is a mechanic who had the police package installed. You have to think that both taxi companies & police departments have been using the Grand Marquis & Crown Victorias for many, many years! What I most enjoyed about this car was the room & comfort--was like sitting on your sofa! My family & I have put approx. 80,000 miles in 6 years on this vehicle--I only had to do the brakes & rotors once; no tranny or engine work besides flush & fill radiator, oil changes every 3,000 miles & studded snows in the winter. I would get another in a heartbeat-only complaint I have is the torque on the vehicle causing a rear wheel car to spin out in snow
R O O O O O M, great travelling car-- small wonder that the "snow birds" used to drive between NY & FL; I got 20 MPH city & 24 HWY which is exceptional for a car of this size!
