Reverse Cool (aka: Happy Motoring)

2011 Mercury Grand Marquis LS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

Review

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". Still 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.

Favorite Features

Leather seats that seem as strong as belting leather; a dashboard that's kept simple; one of the only true Americana pitch & roll cruisers left!

Suggested Improvements

While it has more than most of the newer model cars, the Grand Marquis could've used more leg room for the front passenger seat and rear seats, especially for a car this size. The additional leg room could have easily been achieved by pushing the rear seats further back and taking just a few inches off the trunk. Also, it would be simple to add a MP3 / iPhone plug-in port to the radio/ CD player.
