Review of the 2001 Mercury Grand Marquis

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

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Plenty of interior room, upgraded horsepower for 2001, comfortable ride, excellent crash-test ratings.

  • Cons

    Large size makes it difficult to park and maneuver, not much rear interior storage space, lack of refinement, squishy ride unless the optional handling package is ordered.

  • What's New for 2001

    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.

Love this car!

Vehicle: 2001 Mercury Grand Marquis GS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

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.




Awesome bang for the buck

Awesome Bang for the Buck! With just over 70,000 it's been nothing but a pleasure cruise.




They keep building them

Vehicle: 2001 Mercury Grand Marquis GS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

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.




Best used vehicle i've purchased

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Mercury Grand Marquis GS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

Purchased this vehicle as a second car to travel back and forth to work ( I have two new Mercury's that I did not want to use for work ) the 2001 Mercury had 10000 miles on it!not even broke-in yet. what a pleasure to drive, I don't even use our other car's. fuel mileage is good, I love the ride, the cabin is very quiet and configuration is great, as for the exterior, in my opinion it is one of the best looking car's in it's class. Reliability played a large part in my decision process, I'm a retired officer from a county in Pa. the fords I drove every day were ( and are ) very reliable vehicles. I just moved up a rung on the ladder of the vehicle that I drove for twenty years.




Quality

For road, long distance driving this cannot be beat. Comfortable, low noise, 22-24 mpg road. Good trunk space




Style & comfort

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Mercury Grand Marquis GS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

Great long trip comfort ride with respectable gas mileage, especially for full sized vehicle. Second such vehicle I have purchased, as '96 was totalled by red light-running fool. Was struck at 50 mph and both I and passenger came out of it OK. Believe me when I say I feel pretty darn safe in this car! Great style, comfort, safety and decent economy in full sized ride.

Stick a fork in Mercury -- it's done! Timeline has it at 18 months. 2001 build-out in the normal time frame, July 2001. Returning for 2002, a carry-over Grand Marquis, just as you see it now, likewise...
