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.




Big and beautiful

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

Love comfort and trunk space. Antenna should be in windshield. No space to store "stuff", cell phone, cds, etc. Lousy, lousy interior noise-at interstate speeds the noise is very annoying. Great mileage considering size of car. No problems to report other than lousy interior noise. Two Ford dealers have been given opportunity to correct noise problem--both have failed, in fact, I dont think they knew how to fix problem. Will not consider buying another Mercury or Ford product until noise levels have drasticall been improved. One dealer told me the Michelin tires could be the culprit. Pay $700 to $800 for new tires and problem could be resolved. Should have bought Honda or Toyota




Highly pleased

The Grand Marquis is a great experience. It has great acceleration and will pass anything on the highway while riding in luxury. I bought it because my wife, son and myself drive to our vacations and there is plenty room for luggage, a cooler in the trunk. My son sits in the back seat with his portable DVD player, toys, pillows and blankets with plenty of room to spare. last year we got 25 mpg on the highway with the car loaded.
