Review of the 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis

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

  • Safety

    Plenty of interior room, comfortable ride, excellent crash-test ratings.

  • Cons

    Large size makes it difficult to park and maneuver, grandpa-car image.

  • What's New for 2003

    The 2003 Grand Mark receives a number of updates. The most important ones are hidden. A new full-perimeter frame uses strong, lightweight hydroformed steel sections for the front rails to improve frontal and offset crash performance. Redesigned frame crossmembers and new optional side impact airbags improve side impact crash performance. Additionally, the new frame -- combined with a redesigned independent front suspension and new monotube shock absorbers at all four wheels -- contributes to a smoother, more controlled ride and improved handling. Other changes include a new variable ratio rack-and-pinion steering system with variable power assist and a new dual-rate brake booster that automatically supplies full braking power in a panic stop. On the inside, the seats have been changed to improve comfort and appearance, the cupholders are new, a three-point seatbelt has been added for the center rear passenger and the door trim has been redesigned for a cleaner appearance and better ergonomics. To spot a 2003 Marquis, look for the brighter headlights and subtle new styling applied to the front and rear of the vehicle.

Safe, comfortable, and reliable

Vehicle: 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis GS Convenience 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

I absolutely love my Grand Marquis and all of the features that it has to offer. Since I purchased this vehicle used, I got an excellent deal on it and with it a decent bundle of features that make this car a real joy to drive around with. I purchased it with over 63,000 miles on it and I now have over 74,000 miles. The seats are very comfortable; the trunk is carnivorous - one of the largest in the North American market; the ride is smooth; and the engine has plenty of power to cruise along the highway or pass any vehicles in your way. Combine this with it's extreme reliability (I have not needed to do anything other than standard maintenance) and you have a winning combination! I love it!

Slow service from dealer

Vehicle: 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis GS Convenience 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

I TRADED IN A 2001 GRAND MARQUIS ON A 2003. THE FIRST DAY I NOTICED THE TRANSMISSION SURGED IN REVERSE. THE DEALER REBUILD THE TRANSMISSION TWICE & IT WAS STILL BAD. FINALLY THEY PUT IN A NEW FACTORY TRANSMISSION & IT WAS OK. THIS TOOK 37 DAYS SO THE LEMON LAW KICKED IN. NOW I AM WAITING FOR A REPLACEMENT CAR. I LOVE THE CAR BUT THE SERVICE WAS BAD.

I really like the feel of the steering in the new Mercury. Much quicker. Also like the adjustable pedals since I am very short.Very pleased overall.

I like it because it's a real "American Style" car. It has rear wheel drive and a basic suspension design that's been developed and proven for 70 years. It's what I wanted, and built, like, I like a car built (body on frame).




Nice car but ride could

Vehicle: 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis GS Convenience 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

Air Conditioner worked great. 8 way power seat and back lumbar kept me from getting fatigued on I-95 Plenty of power from 4.6 liter V-8 allowed us to merge safely. Plenty of trunk space for our luggage. Smooth ride on Interstate but a little herky jerky on secondary roads. Plenty of cabin room for us to stretch out 4 speed auto tranny shifted great. I like the outside buttons on the driver's door, in case you lock your keys inside. Spare tire is steel full size rim, and you can use it when you rotate wheels. Remote control from key ring is convienient to lock and unlock trunk lid and doors. Headlights give ample candle power at night driving.
