Lots of room, smooth ride! My 1999 has only 57000 miles on it but is still a nice drive! Too bad ford got rid of the Mercury brand and the crown vic/marquis. I really like this car! Never had any major problems and hope too keep driving for at least another 57000 miles and why not! Still get compliments on this car and offers to purchase it from me.

I am not sure if others who are complaining of poor gas mileage have a different engine or what in their GM but, in my case, this car gets excellent gas mileage for its size.
On road trips, my GM will get 28MPG and a bit more.
This is with around 120k.
We have not have the car tuned or anything else to enhance gas mileage.
This is no hype or exaggeration.
Now, I know that it is listed to give 22MPG Hwy as the official number.
That might be true when it is new but, once it is broken in, the MPG shoots up.
This is a very comfortable and reliable car for the most part.
This why they and Crown Vic are popular as taxis and cop cars.

this vehicle is everthing I expected it to be, my father in law has had 2 and I always felt like I would appreciate the car so when a one owner, always garage kept came available, I bought the car. It has been every thing I thought it would be, extremly comfortable with plenty of room and power. I will definetly buy another one. I have always owned Park Avenues and Buick Electras but I am sold on the Grand Marquis.

After having my 1994 wrecked I found this one in Florida. After many miles the only major thing I had to replace was the intake which spewed antifreeze into the oil & caused it to run rough. Original mufflers lasted 10 years & pipes are original. Great mileage (people always say to me it is a gas guzzler when it gets the same mileage as their V6 foreign cars!) and put performance chip along with K & N filter on myself.

I switched from a 1993 Grand Marquis to a 1999. Quiet a step backwards. Not only is the gas mileage "worse" (EPA rating and in real world), many little items don't make sense. The AutoLamp feature is nervous, comes on in shady places already. The rear defrost button is invisible while steering, located on the left. No cupholders in the rear. Cupholders in the front block climate control. The ride is almost perfect. Safe, reliable and not too expensive to maintain. Overall, a good vehicle.
