1998 Mercury Grand Marquis GS 4dr Sedan


Review

This is an all white car very comfortable to drive and ride in. No collision history with the exception of a wrinkled left edge of the bumper which caught on the edge of the garage door while exiting. The bumper was replaced. The car has 101,000 miles on the odometer. It is on its second set of tires which are about ready to be replaced and probably will need new brakes within the next 5000 miles. Out side of these two items the car is in excellent condition. The interior is blue fabric. The car does not require additional oil between changes.


Best Features

Has a better radio and speaker system then the Highlander we drive. Excellent car for long distance driving. Feel very safe in the car


Worst Features

New tires and brakes

Review

I bought the car used in 2002 with 75,000 miles. I have since put on almost 100,000 miles with no problems. The engine/transmission on these cars is bulletproof. This is my third Grand Marquis. The two previous cars were an '85 and a '92. Both of them reached 200,000 miles with no engine or transmission problems. I would definitely buy another one.


Best Features

Reliability, air conditioning, ride, and comfort.


Worst Features

Improve the structural rigidity of the chassis. I have noticed the frame flex on snow/ice conditions. I've noticed this on my '85 and '92 models also.

Review

I like driving the car. It's a smooth ride but packs enough power to make a jump off the line. I'm not saying it's a racing car, but for a passanger car it's a nice car overall. I put a 1000W system in it. i got 2 12" p1 subs and a 8" bazooka tube. This is with 4 new speakers and a Sony faceplate. If you're buying this car, you really shouldn't have many improvements in mind. This is a smooth car and great for drives anywhere. I put in a system becuase it's what I love and I'm looking to put on 20" rims if it'll hold them and chrome most of it out.


Best Features

Size of car overall. Huge trunk for anything you need it for. Enough room in the car to fit 5 very comfortably. I've had 7 in the car and it still wasn't packed.

Review

Bought this car for my wife with 87k. It is very nice to drive. Smooth and quiet. The best combined MPG to date is 21.72 . Since then I changed out the single exhaust to duals using Walker Quiet Flow mufflers and a Walker H- pipe. Doing this cut almost .6 sec off the quarter mile time. Don't know on the MPG's yet. I can't run the fuel out.LOL.


Best Features

V-8 power and rear wheel drive. 5 star crash rating. More than enough room.


Worst Features

None. Out of production.
