2005 Mercury Grand Marquis GS Convenience 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
A nice large, comfortable, well styled sedan without a lot of high tech junk added on to confuse you while driving. It feels solid, secure, stable, and is a pleasure to drive on longer trips. Easy entry and egress for those with medical problems. Trunk is huge and deep, but the liftover height is too high. The spare tire is far back and hard to reach. Mileage is much better than I expected for this size and weight vehicle. Car starts and runs flawlessly in all kinds of weather. I also test drove a Lincoln Town Car and could not discern any difference, except in the substantially higher price fot the Town Car. See "Suggested Improvements" section for minor complaints and suggestions.
good seating height. quiet and very Comfortable. Good gas mileage. Good throttle response, hill climbing, and passing performance. Attractive styling. Extended tune-up interval.
Four headlamps that all go on when using high beams. Places to put things like sunglasses, coins, etc. Status lights for door/trunk ajar, etc. Electronic gas pedal makes using cruise control usage difficult. Heated wipers in snow country. Dash mounted control to stiffen steering even more.
