2006 Mercury Grand Marquis GS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

Review

Seats 6 (not on long trips however) and averages 23 mpg. Great trunk space. Reliability is one of the best and even beats a lot of Japanese luxury cars as noted by consumer reports and JD Power surveys. Highway cruising is the way it should be. Beats SUV and most crossovers for mileage and mine has traction control for winter driving ( I don't really need 4 wheel drive on paved roads). I bought it used very cheap because no one wants a v8 right now. Great choice for the used car buyer! Everyone thinks it's a geezer car (I'm only 42 and perfect for my family). Radio isn't powerful enough (maybe made for geezers). Pronounced wind noise and steering vibration.

Favorite Features

Considering that it hauls up to 6 people (albeit short trips) and all their luggage in a massive trunk, it gets great mileage at between 20 and 25. The price used is unbelieveably low because no one wants a V8 right now which makes it a greatbuy. Reliability has been exceptional throughout the years

Suggested Improvements

Perhaps Ford should look at mating a V6 with this car to improve the mileage. The front seats need to be more supportive. The suspension could be beefier to improve towing from 2000 pounds. Isn't there anyway Ford can make this car look less like grandpa's? How about a convertible or wagon version?
