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

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

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.




Great car for the price.

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

I've owned many cars. The Mecury Grand Marquis is a great car for the price. Although not a car for everyone, for long distance driving it's comfort, speed and handling suits me.




Miserable owner

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

This vehicle is 7 months old and I have problems with radiator, all four tires cracked and need replacing, glur trim is coming off of the side of the car. I took out special warranty policy which has not been totally honored by the local dealer. 2 dealers refuse to honor Ford warranty.




The name says it all

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

This car is absolutely fabulous it rides awsome smooth as silk and quiet as they come its like riding on a cloud compared to my 01 Avalon which i traded in on this this Mercury is the best i love it the engine has great pick up it can it to 85 in about 8.5 seconds when you really floor it and i like the way when you floor it pushes you back in the seat and speaking about seats the are extra large and as comfortable as a pillow on this car is great on long trips and i love the overhead console and lights in the back seat they come in handy when you have passengers who like to read on long trips at night and i love that beautiful wood grain and chrome door handles they look great....
