I bought this car used in 2003 and it had only 9,200 miles on it. It now has 100,000 miles on it. The actual repair costs have been less than $1,000. I get 21 MPG around town and 25 MPG on the highway at 70 MPH. It's, without question, the best car I ever owned. I can't understand why Ford is discontinuing manufacture of the Mercury line. I guess they are trying to force us into "golf cart" cars.

I think this is one of the best cars ever made. I have had many cars over years, this is 1st one I have complete faith in running all the time. Comfort is grand and mileage is 23 to 25 hwy and 20 to 22 city for v8 that is outstanding. I have 120,000 and still hold mileage rate high. I would recommend anyone to buy this model and never look back.

I purchased the 2000 Grand Marquis Mercury LS as a 'program car' meaning it had been owned by Avis Rental Cars and it had 20,000 miles on it. It is over 135,000 miles now and I have had less trouble with the car than any I ever owned. I love the way it handles, the huge trunk and carrying capacity. I sincerely enjoy the 8 cyl engine for its quick speed in traffic in the city. The single drawback is the low gas mileage, but it does use regular gas so that has helped. I want to purchase another car exactly like this one!
The Marquis receives additional safety features, including an emergency trunk release, child seat-anchor brackets and Mercury's Belt Minder system. The interior gets a new trim color, Dark Charcoal. One new exterior color will be offered, Tropic Green. The handling package's rear-axle ratio changes from 3.27 to 3.55. The Grand Marquis Limited will be offered later in the 2000 model year.
