Vehicle2008 Mercury Grand Marquis LS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
ReviewMost of the reviews on the car are positive. However,if you read the Edmunds review, it sounds like this car belongs in the 19th century. What is the purpose of a car? To get one from point A to point B safely, comfortably, and reasonably economically. The Grand Marquis does all of this very well. I get 27 MPG on the highway and average 23 around town. I drive it conservatively. I'm tired of Edmunds and others running down these cars in favor of more sporty handling vehicles that corner better. What the heck do you need that for? As for interior space, the claim that the Sable is just as big is just not true. The Sable is 6" narrower.
Maybe the 'experts' need to reassess a cars purpose.

You're right about the so-called "experts". Maybe they give favorable reviews to what the sponsors like. I doubt any of them have been driving a long time. Many probably have never seen a rear wheel drive vehicle before. I don't pay much attention to reviews. I look at what is on the road...out of all the cars I see that are more than 9 or 10 years old, many of them are Grand Marquis. What does that tell you?Report it
