2003 Mercury Grand Marquis LS Premium 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
My driving and ownership experience. Hmm. Well all said and done, second too none. The MGM is by far the best car I have ever owned, inside and out. I've given this car the highest ratings all around including fuel economy. I find though my research most larger cars as well as mini-vans or other family sized vehicles average around 20-25 mpg. I average about 25 mpg (26.7) to be precise with my Grand Marquis. Now factor the size and weight and power of the car and compare that on a scale to ANY small car or large car. You will find the MGM is the green or most fuel efficient car on the road. Outside of fuel economy, I rate the reliability five stars. MGM has a proven record and still holds it.
Roomy, Comfy, simple, great handling and for some reason it is a chick magnet. (A benefit I found out after buying the car)
Well there is only one thing I can think of and this is probably more my age talking (28 yrs), I'd really like to see one standard shift.
