1998 Mercury Grand Marquis LS 4dr Sedan


Review

Drove by the dealership (closed). Real nice Gulf Coast Edition, Red Toredor with Gray Leather. Looked brand new inside/out. Have owned 14 Lincolns but this one my wife really liked, so I bought it for $5400. Hard to say anything bad about an 11 year old car that still shines like new in/out. Had all books/records and owned by a 78 yo Lady. Looks like it never left a garage. Drives very close to a Lincoln Towncar.


Best Features

Leather, quiet and roomy.


Worst Features

I would have liked armrests that open like in the Lincoln. I may install a CD player. Beautiful design. 1998 was the 1st year of this design change.

1998 Mercury Grand Marquis GS 4dr Sedan


Review

I"ve had my Marquis for a month now. I travel everyday from Miami to Ft. Lauderdale up I 95, I don't suffer from back aches anymore. I use to drive a Kia Sportage. Thought I was saving Gas money, with the G-Marquis I have not notice any difference in spending.I consume the same 1/2 of 1/4 tank, same as with the Kia. Love the power and sense of safety. What a car, if I change it, it will be for a recent model. No more tojo's for me American all the way.


Best Features

8 cyl. of power, bench seats are extremely comfortable, enough space for large family.


Worst Features

Better city gas milleage

Review

I bought a second-hand car after graduation for office commuting. I grew up playing with Matchbox cars and I never imagined I would be driving a rear wheel drive large American sedan one day. Nearly three years and 28,000 miles later, I am still in love with my car. Aside from regular maintenance and a few niggles (door rattle), it has not cost me anything to maintain. I fill it, shut it, and forget it. My friends and relatives were apprehensive when I chose it over a fuel efficient Japanese car, but now all of them enjoy riding in it. The car is very reliable. It is also fun to drive. Considering its size, it maintains traction in high-speed turns and it is nimble while parking


Best Features

Comfortable sofa-like seating with large bench seats and arm rests. Room for tall drivers. Safety. Reliable and powerful engine. Side lights turn on with turn signals - great for dark driving conditions. Seating for six passengers. Large trunk. Rack-mounted gear shift


Worst Features

Fuel efficiency, while superb for a V8 engine, could be increased with advanced features such as variable valve timing? Traction control - this will improve stability and control in wet roads. Better marketing - few drivers know this car and yet so many appreciate it when they ride it

Review

Mine has been a great vehicle. The original Eagle GT tires were very rough ride when they got some miles on them . Went to Goodyear assurance tires and improved the ride tremendously. The early depreciation has been made up by the longevity. Also, change transmission fluid and clean fuel system if yours becomes sluggish.


Best Features

garage door opener, dependability, comfort ride - auto temperature control


Worst Features

drivers seat should offer more support.

Review

This is an all white car very comfortable to drive and ride in. No collision history with the exception of a wrinkled left edge of the bumper which caught on the edge of the garage door while exiting. The bumper was replaced. The car has 101,000 miles on the odometer. It is on its second set of tires which are about ready to be replaced and probably will need new brakes within the next 5000 miles. Out side of these two items the car is in excellent condition. The interior is blue fabric. The car does not require additional oil between changes.


Best Features

Has a better radio and speaker system then the Highlander we drive. Excellent car for long distance driving. Feel very safe in the car


Worst Features

New tires and brakes
