2004 Mercury Marauder 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

Review

To date I have never done anything to her other than normal maintenance work you would expect. Tires, brakes a couple of light bulbs. For it's weight @ 4200 lbs or 2tons the car has plenty of power and handels better than you would figure on a full size 4 door. The ride and comfort for a full size muscle car is exceptional to say the least. Many changes were made to it so it would stand out above the Grand Marquies. No more conventional stearing has rack and pinion. Forged control arms with a better front and rear suspension and larger sway bars. Heavy duty transmision and coolers for it. Mustang rear end gears and so much more.

I've owned alot of cars over the years, and this is one of the best. I wish they were still made. You can't beat the combination of performance and comfort.

Review

Overall, I love this car, however there are a couple of things I think Ford missed. Obviously, they could've put the supercharger on the thing. I also think that it would be nice to have a suspension adjustment switch. It rides very nicely most of the time, but when you're on a bumpy road, you feel it! It would be nice to be able to soften up the suspension a bit when you're just not in a performance type of a mood.

Still Crazy in Love

Review

Ordered my'04 Silver Birch in Oct.'03 (after owning a Crown Vic that just made me yawn.)WOW! Not the same animal...the difference between a house cat and a tiger! Reliability is suberb. A daily driver, it performs flawlessly. Love the handling that takes me through the twisties with ease. It's just plain ol' FUN to drive. It's striking exterior and throaty exhaust note still turns heads. After all these years still get a thrill jumping behind the wheel and firing it up. With low production numbers over 2 model years, many devoted owners keep in touch via internet forums and regional meets. For gearheads, this car is a dream. Wake it up...and hear the tiger roar!

Dream To Own And Drive

2004 Mercury Marauder 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

Review

This car is a dream if you are interested in performance. It has the power to merge into traffic on the freeway and the power to pass other vehicles on 2 lane roads. I am getting about 23 MPG on the highway and about 20 MPG in the city. It is so comfortable that I can drive this car for 350 miles without stopping and not get tired. There is plenty of room in the back seat for your passengers and there is a center fold down armrest in the back seat. The visibility from to the outside from inside the "cockpit" is excellent and all the gauges are easy to see. The console makes a handy storage area but unfortunately neither it nor the glove compartment lock. I love this car.

2004 Mercury Marauder 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

Review

Bought my 2nd one in 2004. Racked up 70,000 miles on the first one with no major issues. Paint does scratch easily on both years. Does not handle like a large platform, long wheel base provides the ride. Dual tuned exhaust provides the sound. Dual overhead cam power plant provides the mid range power.It is a bit slow of the line for a 300+ HP. Fortunately a number of houses provide some power enhancements for the vehicle for kid in us. I am somewhat a younger Marauder owner and would have preferred a better sound package and IP. Cup holders are not very good, like you get a chance to use them when hot rodding. Will bring you in to the dark side. High tire expense. Gas mileage is excellent

Comfort and Power

2004 Mercury Marauder 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

Review

Since August 2004 when I bought it never had a problem with it still sounds and acts the same as the day I drove it of the lot. Everyone from cops to passers by have to check it out. Like the days of old it is a full size car that has power galor that will give the thrills of yesteryear when everyone loved US muscle cars. On a trip the car is great on the highway about 400 miles to a tank on a trip. Just keep your foot out of it in the city. Best fuel performance in the 2200 to 2400 RPM range normal driving. Faster than a stock Mustang GT in a quarter mile race.

Review

I'm very impressed with my 2004 Maroon w/ charcoal interior. Rides, sounds and performs very well. Turns heads with appearance and exhaust sound. I like the feeling of safety in it's full frame, large body. Rides a bit stiff in order to give great handleing ability.

Bring back the Marauder

Review

Incredible Machine. Bought mine used and it totally rocks; owned many large and small cars. This one is a blast to drive, turns heads, is super comfortable, easy to maintain, and for its size (both overall and engine), it gets great mileage - 26.5 on my last trip to DC. Merc really dropped the ball on the marketing of this vehicle.

All cars should be like this

2004 Mercury Marauder 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

Review

I drive over 100 miles a day to and from work (mostly highway). I get 25 MPG in the summer and 22MPG in the winter (hate that winter gas). The car is big and roomy. It reminds me more of the cars from the late 1960's. At nearly 50,000 miles, its time to replace the rear tire, again.
