Having grown up in the back of my Mom's station wagons and my Dad's large Buick and Olds company cars in the 60's & 70's, the Grand Marquis and its sister car the Crown Victoria are the only American cruisers left that harken back to when 1 oz of gold : US $35.00. That some bemoan the Grand Mercury for being a poor handling automobile is unfortunate. The Grand Marquis was never meant to handle like a car half its weight, but rather this American chariot was meant to isolate its occupants from the bumps in the road and all the outside noises. When I think of the Grand Marquis, the engineering adages "Keep it simple" or "Simple is best" come to mind. Admittedly, there's not much current styling going on here, to the point that my teenage son calls it "reverse cool". Yet, the Grand Marquis achieves the classic Americana pitch & roll feel that will slowly fade as these classics dwindle on the roads. As for me, I just bought a used Grand Marquis '11 with low mileage and expect to have years of safe, happy motoring to 200K and beyond. - E J FuddReport it
