We bought this car with 80,000. on it and now it has over 240,000. We've been to Utah and back to Ok several times and each time we check the mileage. The worst it got was 26 mpg and the best it got was 31 mpg. Each time. I find it hard to believe it only rates 16 in the city. This is a caddy for the poor people. We were going to get another one until they quit making them (that was dumb) So we got a Ford Escape instead. My dad has a 1999 and he loves his too.

As another person mentioned, this car is a sleeper. The 210hp 4.6L V8 with SOHC provides very good performance while giving surprisely good gas mileage. I get 30 mpg Imperial (Canada) driving at over 60mph or 100kmph. This engine is designed for fuel efficiency while being powerful enough at .75 hp per cubic inch. The car is designed for comfort, which is why I like the arm rests instead of a storage bin. If you want a storage bin, buy an after market product for the transmission hump. Yes, the power windows are slow and you wish they would go faster when you are in a hurry, but that's not a deal breaker. You can still buy a 2008 Mercury Grand Marquis.
Power from the V8 engine is improved. The interior gets minor improvements and an optional adjustable pedal assembly. Safety has been improved via a crash severity sensor, safety belt pre-tensioners, dual-stage airbags and seat position sensors.
