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


Review

Very cool, very powerful, very fun, very big. It is an extremely comfortable car to drive, and gives you the power on the road when you need it. It turns heads!


Favorite Features

Looks, it looks very cool. The dual exhaust has the rumble you never get tired of hearing.


Suggested Improvements

They factory sub is useless. To much vibration. I wish it came a tweak smaller. It's a big car, and I like the design and style, but I think a tad bit smaller would make it more appealing.

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.


Favorite Features

Has all of the guages of a performance car. And like the 1960's and 70's Marauder it has the center councel shifter. Very bright chrome rims


Suggested Improvements

Option of a supercharger should have been made available for the kid in us all. It needs nothing else.

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


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.


Favorite Features

The vehicle styling, especially the 18 inch rims, the chrome tailpipes, the leather interior with the word Marauder in various places are all perfectly done.


Suggested Improvements

Supercharged engine would've been nice. People buy this car with the understandnig that it's somewhat of a muscle car, which will consume some gas. I just don't think gas mileage is as much of a concern to the particular people looking for a car such as this.

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.


Favorite Features

Outstanding performance and handling from the 32valve 4 over head cam engine and drive train. A lot of comfort never feel like you need to take a break drving it on trips. Better gas milage than expected. Can get up to 25 on the highway and 18 around town.


Suggested Improvements

The only thing that should have been an option is a Super Charger from the factory other than what was available @ the time. Also needed larger brakes considering the power and weight of the car.

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


Review

This car is a remarkable value. Paid 22K CPO in Aug and this thing rides like an American S-Class. Could it be a little faster...maybe. Once its off the line this car is an animal from 20-120. I think Mercury hit it right. More horses would've made this car a gas guzzler. I think that they bailed out way too soon on HiPo.. now Chrysler has all the 4 door muscle. Including a suicide door Imperial.(Way to fo LM asleep at the wheel as ususal.) This car is BEAUTIFUL in every way imaginable. They should bring it back and offer a light 4.6 and a Supercharged version. . I love this car. Drive it once and you'll want it


Favorite Features

Stealth like performance.


Suggested Improvements

I think it wouldve been nice had they tuned it for regular gas like the SS and made the sunroof standard.
