Great car

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Mercury Grand Marquis GS Convenience 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

I bought this car new, enjoyed it very much. Has 60,000 miles, 23 average mpg, better on trips. I think it's a quiet car overall, the only thing I don't like is a start up engine knock but its been doing that all the time and I lost a center hub cap. The car runs great, plenty of power for me, good ride.




Reliable if not exciting

Vehicle: 2005 Mercury Grand Marquis GS Convenience 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

We have had eight Grand Marquis since the mid-eighties. I can honestly say that they have served us well with most of them getting 120000 before trading. Our current 2005 has 140000 with minimal problems, electrical control module and catylic converter. We get 22 mpg on two lane roads and up to 27 on long trips.This is not a flashy car but it is comfortable and reliable.

Probably good for another 200,000

Vehicle: 2005 Mercury Grand Marquis LS Ultimate 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

What more could I ask for? I don't want all the techno crap and I don't want to bump my elbow every other minute, which I seem to do in smaller cars. Granted, the cupholder is only just usable and the car could use a bit more storage in the front seat area. But you know what-I like every other aspect of this car just fine. I like its heft without being too hefty and I like how it moves. The rack and pinion steering is precise and the air suspension is great without totally isolating you from road feel. Leather, air ride, quality construction and a good stereo. For what I paid for a virtually new car with only 22K miles, I could never get a better deal.




Poor electronics and a/c motors

G-man loves his grand marquis

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Mercury Grand Marquis GS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

I bought this car for my 40th birthday. It had 76,000 miles on the odometer. And the car was in PERFECT condition. As a Dad with 3 kids in the house, safety is number one. I paid $6,500 FOR THE CAR AND HAVE CONSIDERED THIS CAR THE BEST i HAVE EVER OWNED. It isn't the prettiest. But, I KNOW I could put 200,000 miles on this car. I just put a new set of Goodyear Eagle GT's on this car and it handles great. And for the harshe winters here in southern Michiagan, the car is exceptional.




Easy front seat access

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Mercury Grand Marquis LS Premium 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

The front passenger seat is easy to enter and exit. This is the main thing I was looking for, since my wife has a physical handicap. The front doors are high and wide, and hip and head room are excellent. The front bench seat, without a console, is a plus, for the extra legroom. The leather power seats help getting in and out. I had considered a van for front seat access, but this car's front seat dimensions were almost as good.
