Review of the 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis

  • Thousands of Floridians can't be wrong! A Lincoln Town Car at Honda Accord prices.

It's an okay car

Vehicle: 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis GS 4dr Sedan

My family has had this for 12 years. I have to say, I'm surprised it has lasted this long with us. The engine is great. Very powerful and quick to take off. Will definitely spin a pair of tires off. But, the transmission was terrible from the start, and the interior sizing is terrible for a car of its size. It's like they crammed to much sound canceling material into it before they thought about how they were going to fit the seats into it with enough room for the passengers to be comfortable in it. Air is great, I like the fact that it is a climate control system. Radio is terrible. And the rearview mirror is placed entirely to low. I wouldn't recommend this car to really anyone.

Timex in a digital age

Vehicle: 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis GS 4dr Sedan

This car puts comfort and reliability above all else. It is amazingly comfortable although I wish the seats offered more side bolstering to keep you in place through the turns. It is VERY reliable. nothing has broken or worn out in its 62K mile life. Lots of room in the cabin and trunk though Id like a center console for storage. The driving experience is muted by vague steering and minimal road feel. The car wallows over bumps and turns and doesn't instill confidence in its handling, especially in wet conditions. The power train is adequate and the car never feel out of breath although more power would be welcome for passing. MPG is ok given its a 2 ton car, I get about 19.

Great reliable car

Vehicle: 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis GS 4dr Sedan

Roomy, decent gas mileage, luxury, and comfort. I have 140,000 miles on mine and it drives like a dream. Powerful V8 - And ALL electrical items still work in the car ! I have always maintained it well, but no major repairs.




Head out on the highway!

Vehicle: 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis GS 4dr Sedan

Drove it from south Florida to North Carolina and averaged 29 mpg around 65 mph! Outstanding! A big comfortable highway cruiser for our occasional road trips. I've since added dual exhaust, rear air shocks and replaced those awful plastic wheel covers with the cast aluminum laced wheels. Will also have to replace the original intake manifold (with plastic coolant passages) before our next trip. Only design flaws are radio and heater controls not in easy reach, wide floor sill under doors makes exiting the car a little clumsy. Power windows are getting slow, common for Fords.

Owned mine 8 years so

by on
Vehicle: 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis GS 4dr Sedan

Purchased this brand new. Excellent car. No breakdowns in over 8 years. All I did was routine maintenance. The coolant temperature sensor went bad 3 years ago, but everything still works fine. Surviving 8 Michigan winters with no rust, and the original exhaust system still in great shape is a miracle. If gas weren't so high I'd be buying another one. I do mostly city driving, but my car still gets great mileage on the highway. It's like driving in the safety of a tank with a sofa inside.

Vehicle: 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis GS 4dr Sedan

This car has been the best in reliability of any cars I've owned. I have had the car for 8 years and never had to put a dime into it. It still looks and runs great. The gas mileage around town is about 18 miles a gallon and about 22 on long drives. It would be great for older folks who can't get in smaller cars.
