1998 Mercury Grand Marquis GS 4dr Sedan

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

Favorite 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

Suggested Improvements

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
