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


Review

My cousin talked me into buying it. I have a Lincoln Blackwood and was looking for another car. and this car is a Gas. Fun to drive Corners like a big Saab but has that american feel for the road. Good gas mileage when cruising 60-70 great pickup from 40 on up. its so good I had to get a new radar detector. Huge trunk.comfortable seating. Decent sound system but nothing to brag about. But I think they only made 18000 of them each year for two years. So if you want afun car to drive that may go up in value this is it

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


Review

Mercury should've continued this rear wheel drive musclecar and added a supercharger to it. Mercury's failure to adequately market this model cost it sales in a serious segment of the performance sedan market. Mercury hasn't had any marketing sense, it seems, for 30 years.


Best Features

Can hold five adults and their luggage with no apparent loss of control or overall driveability.


Worst Features

Larger mototr to provide more low end torque or supercharge the existing 32v DOHC motor

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


Review

Great combination of performance and comfort for a daily driver. Low production figures. Frequent compliments given by total strangers.


Best Features

Fun to drive. Great musclecar stance. Screaming acceleration at highway speeds. Automatic transmission can be driven like a manual transmission; upshifts click-stop automatically into next gear.


Worst Features

More power is always welcome.

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


Review

Had the car 2 months now. I'm a young guy(30's) and beleive it or not, previously owned 2 Grand Marquis. Liked them but decided for something with a little more attitude. Certainly found it with this beast. I love the car, but it has fit & finish issues. I'm very disappointed with inconsistent spacing between doors and roof panels. Not acceptable for a car that lists for $37,000. Dash started to come apart on pass. side. Dealer fixed that. Yet driver side doors are still mounted improperly causing paint to chip in door jams. Dealer fixed that, but gaps between door and roof are inconsistent with pass. side. How does this make it past quality control at the assembly plant? Unacceptable!


Best Features

The engine!!! Excessive power. Won't stomp everything out there, but will stomp out most. Will beat anything that is close to it's own weight and many that are lighter. Very roomy and comfortable ride. Reliable strong engine. heated sts.,moonroof,remote start,acceleration. I paid under $27K,loaded!


Worst Features

I give this a 3 rating in fuel mileage, only because there are a couple Suv's that would get a 2(Yukon) and a 1 (Hummer).Didn't buy this car to save on fuel though. Bought it for power.Better quality control at assembly.Mechanically it's very reliable. Very comfortable,powerful auto.Lower the MSRP.
