Great car for the money
By greytech on
1999 Mercury Grand Marquis LS 4dr Sedan
This has been a great car. I bought it used with about 40000 miles on it and now I have about 100000 miles. While it is not an exciting car to drive it has proved to be very reliable, it uses no oil between changes,handles very well for a vehicle of it's size. I commute about 20 miles to work about 75% interstate highway and I am averaging about 20 mpg, on long highway runs I have gotten as high as 26 mpg, but can usually count on about 24 mpg. If hope to keep this car another 10 years and when the time comes find another slightly used one.
Huge trunk, great highway mileage, very reliable
More comfortable seats,better location for front cupholders, independent rear suspension
