Tanklike safety; great handling; very

Vehicle: 2004 Mercury Grand Marquis LS Ultimate 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

Got this car used in 2012 with only 24,300 miles on it. Had an older Lexus GS300 prior to this. So far I really like the Panther platform. I have replaced one fuel pump; otherwise, no driveability issues. Electronic Climate Control was out, which I fixed myself with an aftermarket part. Cruise control was out, and is still out; just haven't needed it. Factory CD player died, so replaced with a Pioneer unit. Fake chrome trim pieces were damaged so I replaced with store-bought new ones.

Vehicle: 2004 Mercury Grand Marquis LS Ultimate 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

I just bought this car its a 2004 and only had 53400 for miles. The car looks and drives like new and should it was a one owner bought in Florida and came here to new England in 2010. I have worked with cars all my life and this is one of the best to own.




Great gas mileage

Just finished a trip getting as much as 29.9 mpg on a tank of gas. Another tank full got 29.7 mpg. Overall, driving 2600 miles I averaged 27.5 mpg. The vehicle has been very reliable.

Vehicle: 2004 Mercury Grand Marquis LS Ultimate 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

Full frame, V8 Rear Wheel Drive. The only configuration I'll ever own. Been driving Grand Marquis' and Town Cars for over thirty years, and that will be the same till I die. I work on my own cars and have never purchased new. These cars are rugged, reliable and cheap & easy to fix. That's why police departments, taxi companies and rental agencies chose this platform. Just bought this 2004 Ultimate sixteen months ago with 80K on it, and have not been disappointed. Got a documented 28MPG on a recent 600 mile trip. No doubt it will hold up like all my past FOMOCO cruisers. That means at least 15 more trouble free years in my possession. Batteries, tires and brakes are no "trouble".

Bullet proof

Vehicle: 2004 Mercury Grand Marquis LS Ultimate 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

Most under appreciated car on the road today. If your looking for a small neo- hippy car or a glitzy peacock vehicle don't look at the merc. but if you need a to hell and back in comfort and reliability you cannot look anywhere else. I do alot of highway driving and at 70 mph+ I average 31-33.5 mpg depending on AC usage. show me any v8 import lux sedan that gets that mpg and then compare price tags and reliability. this platform is something that should never be discontinued its a mark of American quality. I'm 31 and I get asked why I drive an old man car and I respond because old men know quality and don't have time for less.




Best car and looks great

Vehicle: 2004 Mercury Grand Marquis GS Convenience 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

I always love big cars because I like to get more for my money. I want buy a small car because they do not ride like the Grand Marquis. This car is the best car and everywhere I go people give me compliments on this car. It is very fancy also with a vinly top. Lincoln Town Car I really like but why should I pay more for the same car and motor. I'm a car expert and you are getting your money worth when you buy this car. I also on a Mercedes and a Jeep but they donot ride like the Grand Marquis. I believe every family should at least own one of these cars.

I don't think the Grand Marquis has ever been a best selling full-size car. Maybe if you want to say "best selling body-on-frame RWD full-sized car 210" or longer for 2008", then yeah,...

be kept up and running, so using the engine on a Grand Marquis, giving bigger wheels, and some part upgrades, will not break the bank....
