2003 Mercury Marauder 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

After driving Lincoln Town Cars and
then Navigators for the past 15 years I
said, "what the heck", it's time for
this 50 something suit wearing
professional to try this "hot rod".
What a Blast! The evening I picked this
up at the dealership it was sitting
inside the service department. When the
salesman started this car in that
cavernous garage the sound was so
awesome I wished I didn't have to stay
to do the paperwork! This car is the
bargain of the decade! Comfort, all the
amenities and 300+ hp of tire smoking,
put you back in the seat power for just
over $30K! Why hasn't this car caught
on? It will definately stay in my
collection!


Best Features

The look, the size, the sound, the comfort, the sound system, the wheels and tires, (do I only have 300 words)


Worst Features

I would like to see a more up to date floor shifter with the +/- tap feature to change gears. Satellite radio. I really think the hp has been limited for this 4.6. Does anyone know of a reliable chip manufacturer I might contact? Needs a little more low end grunt.

2003 Mercury Marauder 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

There are very few if any vehicles out
there that can evoke a visceral feeling
when you put the pedal to the metal.
The first time I got on this baby my
heart skipped a beat and I felt it all
the way down my spine. An econo box
with a hood scoop just doesn't do it
for me and never will. Give me a big
bad American V8 pushin 300 hp with
attitude.


Best Features

Big tires , chromed out wheels, dual chrome exhausts


Worst Features

Darker tinted windows from the factory, lose the bulbous shifter for something Hurst like. Something cosmetic around the hood displaying V8, DBLOHC 4.6L, Old GTO mini scoop.

2003 Mercury Marauder 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

It's about time someone built a fun car
for big people. I'm 6'2" and don't fit
in any of the Hondas, Nissans or
Toyotas.This big Merc has it all.
Power, handling, braking and fun to
drive. I missed out on the last Impala
but I drove a couple. Glad I waited for
the Maurader. It's build quality is
much better and it handles better and
is faster.


Best Features

Power, handling, comfort and on the road gas mileage.


Worst Features

More powerful, XFM or SIRIUS capable stereo.Memory seats.

Review

Handles well, no slop in the steering
and no "floating" in curves or on bumpy
roads. It is slow off the mark but
quickly picks up once the tach reaches
3000. It has the quiet ride that you'd
expect from Ford and the leather seats
are quite luxurious.


Best Features

Steering and handling, especially at high speeds (120mph+)


Worst Features

I'd love to see this car as a coupe.
