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


Review

First thing first. This car can stamp out any Impala on the road. However, the Imp was built almost ten years ago and still is a worthy adversary. To me that doesn't make sense. This car should have been 360 horsepower more low end torque and equipped with a five speed automatic/auto stick. Then I would be able to understand Ford's ingenious advertising scheme for this car (not!)Which we all know was no advertisement at all. Because you wouldn't have to advertise a car like that. But that didn't happen did it? And that is why this is the last year the beloved Marauder will be built. What a shame!!


Favorite Features

Nice Feet! 18"chrome on BFG's. Beautiful exhaust note. When little kid's point and look. Trust the kids folks. This car looks much better on the street than it does in print!


Suggested Improvements

Interior door handles are so cheap they seemingly can be pulled right off the hinges. The Focus has a better premium sound system. What's up with that?? HID lights. More Horses.

Review

The hype that this mercury is in the lines of any muscle car just isn't true. The 302hp engine does not do it, poor acceleration, good for high speed driving but 0-60 not impessive. That's what the "muscle cars" were all about. I still have a 1971 chevy nova small block that will leabve this mercury in the dust. Its basically a souped up Grand Marquis with a high $35000 price tag and I regret buying it.


Favorite Features

Interior arrangement OK.


Suggested Improvements

Start again, new body style and less gross weight with more torque.

Review

Great fun to drive car. I traded in my 1997 Crown Vic with 210,000 miles on a 04 Marauder and couldnt be happier, plus Merc is offering 0% interest for 5 years. Great exhaust note but not too loud. The car is basically a new Crown Vic Sport with better engine, no woodgrain, much better suspension, and bling bling wheels. Most people have never heard of a Marauder which is a plus in my book. Plus it tows my 3000 lb trailer with no problem. Should be easy to repair and maintain since it is basically a Crown Vic. Only one brand and model of tires available to fit rear (which might be an expensive proposistion several years from now).


Favorite Features

Two tone interior - I got the light flint gray seats but the rest of the interior is black. Controls on steering wheel. Nice cornering lights and foglights. Very comfortable seats. Nice console with one exposed power port and one concealed power port. Great looking floor shifter.


Suggested Improvements

Needs same size tires front and back. Redo the subwoofer. The wheels are a little much (this is my company car after all). Take the chrome Merc badging off the grill.

Review

The Marauder is even better for 04 - with new colors, a beefier transmission, and more agressive tune! Sweet!


Favorite Features

Smooth power!
