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


Review

This is my fifth Grand Marquis and won't be my last. Reliability is excellent, with one exception - at just over 36,000 miles the right rear wheel bearing started whining. I found out that this was a problem for 03 Crown Vics and Grand Marquis built prior to Jan 03, which mine was. Both rear axle bearings and the spindles were replaced. The car was out of warranty, but since I was a regular customer of the dealer, I got a pro- rated partial warranty payment. Fuel economy tops out at about 25 highway at cruising speed of 75 or so. Best ever fuel economy was on my 99 Grand Marquis on a cool morining, driving 70 mph - 29 MPG! Seats are comfortable,even with my wife's and my back trouble.


Favorite Features

Engine power, ride, lack of wind noise.


Suggested Improvements

Engine noise is higher than previous models - Ford removed the under hood sound insulation, which made engine noise higher.

Review

rented a marquis in 99 in seatlle and fell in love - bought a new 2000 in nov 2001. current is 03man, these vehicles are the best thing on the road - maybe a LTcar might do better??? - i am disabled and carry a scooter lift w/auto air lifts, all told about 300 lbs on a 2 inch tow - both gave me so much comfort and ease of being able to get around n the pleasure of driving - i feel like its power is more then enough - i drive at 70-80 on trips n have hit 90 enroute to las vegas - this car just cruises! its just a smooth - mpg arent the best, but most cars dont carry what i do - even with the lift, scooter, baggage etc, ride is smooth n performance is great - i love my marquis..


Favorite Features

stereo/6 cd player - cruise control - rims - trunk - leather - its black with black interior (or maybe its the dark gray, i cant tell any more) - roooooooommmy - maint is minimal - buying the 00, made decision to use only merc dealer maint and repair and happy with that - i do use synthetic oil???


Suggested Improvements

com-on mercury, put seat heaters as standard - only two problems, brake rotors have overheated twice in 35 thousand miles and instrument panel seems to dim and go bright all in less then fractions of a second --- but these are still small compared to the pleasure i get - wish dig/trip/mpg a lit btr

Review

This is a great car. It's got plenty of power and can peel rubber even when you have a full load of people-which is six. Very comfortable and has great visibility. Just a great "big boat car" from the seventies.


Favorite Features

standard V8 with rear wheel drive


Suggested Improvements

none
