G-man loves his grand marquis

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.




Excellent buy

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

Have driven this for over 42000 miles and this vehicle has given me pure satisfaction. Although it could have a bit more power, it still delivers on average of 23 mpg. Not bad for its size. Got 27 mpg on the last trip to Michigan, very comfortable to travel in as well.




Terrible ride

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

I bought this car new, after having test driven one and renting one for a week. They were fine. Mechanically this car is great. However, the ride quality has been slowly deteriorating ever since day one. The amount of wind noise makes normal conversation difficult. Rear passengers almost need a kidney belt due to the stiff ride. The dealership says both problems are normal. How do they justify that it keeps getting worse then. I had beaters in college that rode better. I've owned one in the past and also own a Mercury Cougar. Neither had these problems. Going out shopping this week for a Toyota and I'm sure I'll get poor trade in value.

Solid, reliable

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

A lot of car for the money, this replaced my 1993 Cad SDV. I find it quieter and quicker. This car is for people looking for substance over flash. It's a great car for people in my age group (50+). Very comfortable and roomy for four adults with abundant trunk room for their luggage. The only negative is the door over the gas cap - it doesn't lock, nor is there a locking gas cap available for the new design.




A real disapointment

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

I have one good thing to say about the car it does get pretty good gas mileage, I get 19 in town and 28 on the Highway. Other than that it's a real disapointment. Road noise is excessive. The interior is cheap, the passengers seat rattles, it sounds line the window aren't all rolled up. We won't even go into the ash tray/cup holder pain in the shorts. The passengers in the back see can't see around the head rests, not confortable on long trips, poor real leg room. If you open the trunk lid in the rain the water off the trunk lid drips into the truck. The car is lacks power for a v8. I don't like the car and would like to trade it, but with only 8 thousand miles on it it has lost $20K value
