The 2007 Mercury Grand Marquis GS is definitely the best buy for the money on the market. It's roomy, comfortable, reliable and affordable. The styling may seem outdated to folks who are trendy but hey...why change something that is already the best. Just as much room as a Cadillac DTS but much more economical to buy and to maintain. Some of the bells and whistles that the LS has are not there but those few things aren't worth the extra cost...unless you don't know what else to do with your money. I love my Grand Marquis!!!
I was looking for a Crown Vic to pull my small bass boat with when this 2007 GM got in the way.
6 years old, 44000 miles, body on frame to handle a trailer hitch, $9500.00?
I was expecting a somewhat clumsy driving experience.
Boy, was I wrong!
The suspension is tight and well controlled.
The steering is
precise and so smooth, too.
I love driving it!
I don't drive with a heavy foot so my worst mpg average for a tank of gas has been 24.6 with about a 40/60 city to highway ratio.
A 300 mile highway trip yielded 28.1 mpg.
The car is so nice I don't want to put the hitch on it.
I feel like I got a new car for 9500 bucks.
There are several like it out there, too.
I find the official review from Edmunds a bit irresponsible! I fail to see the logic in urging folks not to want a so- called "throwback" of a car when the Grand Marquis is a solid, reliable US/Canadian vehicle that gets the job done in comfort and safety. Competitor cars have iffy build quality are costly to repair. Does Edmunds want us to pay more for something "new" just because newness is somehow better? I disagree! I have a 2008 BMW 5 series too and the iDrive is a mess, the dopey flipper shift knob gets in the way, parts break often and it's back to the $$$hop; it's constantly nagging at me too! A lousy personality I pay a fortune for. I'll take the familiar, old school Ford V8 anyday.
The Grand Marquis is the best car on the market for the money Its roomy quiet and has a smooth ride and hugs the road and has great safety ratings which is the most important thing when you are carrying around 2 little ones and the LS Handling Package is great with the improved ride and power And the Laminated Window Glass in the Doors makes you feel extra safe and provides a even more quiet ride And the Dark Toreador Red Paint and Black Leather seats make the car look even better the adjustable foot pedals makes all size drivers comfortable and the power moon roof is a great feature and the remote starter and headlight controls are a must have so in my opinion the Grand Marquis is awesome...
