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


Review

The Mercury Marauder that I purchased in 2003 replaced a 1993 Lincoln MKVIII with 168,000 miles on the odometer. I was looking for a car with like performance, comfort and convieniences. I bought the only silver Marauder they had on their lot. This car has delivered in every way that I could have imagined. It handles beautifully, absorbs the bumps well and has enough performance to get it down the road smartly. I have 37,000 miles on it now, and other than oil changes, two trans fluid changes and a fuel filter, there have been no mechanical or other problems with the car. It averages 21 mpg in every day driving. It averaged 24 mpg on the trip we took to Florida last year.


Best Features

The way the car looks. The way it handles. Straight line performance when you have to really get into it and pass another vehicle. It is hard to beat the sound of this engine when it reaches 6000 rpm. Controls on the steering wheel. Moveable pedals are a really nice feature. And keyless entry.


Worst Features

A supercharger would be nice. And the 5.4 engine that they were supposed to have put in this car with a supercharger would make this car a real performance car. And better brakes. Put some 14" Wilwood rotors with six piston calipers on the front with 12" rotors & four piston calipers on the rear.

Review

This is a great car for room, comfort,
subtle, and just like driving my many
50's & 60's muscle cars.
(GTO,Corvettes,390 Mustang, 401 Ford,
etc.) Just a great car for a mid-life
attack.


Best Features

Performance and a Great Exhaust. This has a great Mach 1/Cobra version engine that can be enhanced as much as you want with lots of performance (aftermarket) Ford parts. So it can be a Super Muscle car if you want.


Worst Features

NONE!!! This is a fantastic Car.

Review

flawless in practically every detail.
try as i might, its extremely
difficult for me to get over 17 mpg
even with a cotton foot. love the
power of a muscle car and the comfort
of a luxury.


Best Features

i was sold on the "mystic" of the vehicle. it alone demands attention. i have had numerous comments about the beauty of the "beast".
