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


Review

This is the best car I ever owned. Went from a '90 Towncar to this. Great ride, handles like a sports car. Will pass anything with ease. Mileage is 23 mpg. The LX with all the bells and whistles would be nice too. One down side is it is smaller inside than a TC but everything short of a van is. If you are looking at one to buy I would jump at it. Great safety, dual air bags. Handles like a sport car, rides like a luxo coupe. Good mileage, lots of space. Looks fantastic. If you want a more sporty ride get the Marauder. But I can not fault this car. Just did a trip with it and the cruise stays within 3 mph of where you set it going up and down hills.


Best Features

Sporty handling with comfortable ride. Great get up and go. Easy to use controls and cup holders. I love the automatic headlights. Set the knob to the left and they come on at dark and stay on long enough to light your path when you park. Good sound system, comfortable ride and good mileage.


Worst Features

Drivers seat could be 1-2 inches wider on the left. They had to do it so everything would fit. I would have made the auto trunk closer standard. Oil pressure gauge should be fully operational over all pressures. Not just glorified idiot lights.

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


Review

This car is great on the highway. Gas mileage is just OK. Mercury gets about 22 MPG around town and 26 on the highway. Only had one major problem with car. Air flow senser went bad just out of the guarantee. Autoway was great with getting in touch with Ford/Mercury in getting most of the repair bill paid for me. I wonder how the car would run with a large six? Would it get better mpg? Buicks all have 6 cyl. engines.

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


Review

Superb vehicle. A Lincoln Town car for half price. Incredible power. 17 city is an underestimate- I get 20. I get 30 on the highway even with lights (rte 13 in Delmarva). No problems at all to date. Still smells new. 24 bucks a year upkeep and much lower than average insurance. The toyota avalon is JUNK compared to this. Some of them are already rusting. I'll play chicken with any of you avalon drivers anyday- you won't live and I'll walk away without a scratch. Anyone with children owes it to them to have this great machine because of its safety, durability, power, and mileage. Why do you think its the preferred car for cops and cabbies? It's the best car made in the world for the price.


Best Features

Safe. Reliable. Fast. Smooth. Great mileage. Low Price. Keeps kids happy.


Worst Features

Keep on making them as is. No need to improve unless gas hits $5 per gallon, then work on tweaking the mileage.

Driving experience very good. Passengers always comment on how nice it rides. Gas mileage very good. Curve at top of front doors is dangerous, people have had bad knocks.


Best Features

Comfort, smooth ride, neat interior, large trunk, Outside style


Worst Features

Trouble with auto light switch, due to location under hood. Redesigin door storage compartments. Storage on back of front seats is too stiff. Miss having a temp & compass in rear-view mirror.

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


Review

This car is wonderful on trips due to its comfort. It has leather interior which gives it a very plush feeling. We are most appreciative of the large trunk for luggage. City driving however is hard on gas mileage.


Best Features

Leather interior, cd player, large trunk and nice exterior color. Green body tan top.


Worst Features

2 hubcaps have been stolen on right side.
