2009 Mercury Grand Marquis LS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
I've owned 12 Crown Victoria and Grand Marquis sedans since 1989. I came across a 2009 Grand Marquis LS Ultimate Collection with just 8.400 miles on June 1, 2011.
This car is not only the best full size Ford product I've ever owned, but the BEST car I've ever owned !
Say all you want about being dated, but these cars were a salesman's dream....no failure along the side of the road. Ever.
The evolution from 2004 to 2009 was a continued improvement in ride and transmission driveability, shift points, etc.
I've just retired and feel set for many years to come. Remember the "special feel of an Oldsmobile" ? As long as I can, I will have the "special feel of a full size Ford product".
4.6 liter V-8 uses virtually no oil
Ultimate Edition has great handling
Autotemp has performed well in record temps
17" wheels have enhanced ride quality
28 MPG highway at 65 MPH w/ac for 500 miles
Not a squeak or rattle...a tribute to Ford St. Thomas, Ontario Assembly closing soon
None...the Panther (full size Ford products) will go down as probably the best vehicles in the 108 years the Ford Motor Company has been in business.
