Overall great car to play with
By cmarek on
2003 Mercury Marauder 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
This beastly ride is great! It may not have the initial tire-chirping torque that marks a true muscle car, however it does get up to speed quite quickly and keeps up better with traffic than its crown vic, police interceptor, or grand marquis brethren. Not to mention the leather seats are comfortable and make you feel very relaxed, and the car rides smooth down the highway thanks to the self-leveling air suspension in the back. This car is a real head turner also, even bone stock 'cause it's one you don't see everyday unless you personally own one like me :D. This ride is a great keeper for anyone who is lucky enough to have one.
I like just about all the unique dash features of the car (i.e. gauges, controls, shifter) The chrome exhaust tips are awesome looking. The marauder name in the rear bumper is nice, and the rims look good too. If kept clean and shiny, it stands out and is very intimidating like the Interceptor is.
Although this car is no longer in production, they are still running around and need maintenance like all vehicles do. The trans dipstick for one thing could be easier to reach and replacement rear tires should be easier to obtain. Otherwise, overall great car.
