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.


Favorite Features

Comfort


Suggested Improvements

More MPG - smaller engine. There is more power then neded.

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.


Favorite Features

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


Suggested Improvements

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

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


Review

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.


Favorite Features

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


Suggested Improvements

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.


Favorite Features

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


Suggested Improvements

2 hubcaps have been stolen on right side.

Review

I've been very happy with my Grand Marquis. In fact, it's the first time ever that I purchased the same car twice in a row. I've been driving a Grand Marquis since 1997 now! The ride is excellent. Smooth and great for long trips. Engine is pretty good for a big car. I have the 8 cylinder so of course that helps. Mechanically, nothing has went wrong so far.


Favorite Features

Quiet, smooth ride on the highway
