2006 Mercury Grand Marquis GS Convenience 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
This is my first Grand Marquis and I have owned it for 14 months. I primary use it for work and recreational driving on the weekends. I have put on 31,000 miles and it's been pretty reliable so far. I get about 21-22mpg doing both city and highway driving. I think it handles pretty well for such a big car. The traction control came in handy in the snow.
Very comfortable cloth seats and a nice soft ride which is what I wanted. I had a Toyota Camry LE before and it doesn't match it in these respects. I also feel safer since it's a much larger car. I also like the extra power, going from a four cylinder to an eight.
Better cup holders, they are too small and feel flimsy.
