It Is A Big Car That Is Very Comfortable And Easy To Drive. — The maintenance costs are low since there are so many of these cars on the road still. For a big car it has a lot of pep and a very big back seat and trunk, extremely room yet not overbearing for it's size.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Not Bad But Needs Improvement — The car is not a bad car for daily driving and great for road trips. It gets decent gas mileage on the highway and in the city it depends on how you drive it. It is way to long and it is a hard car to park in almost any parking spot especially if you are parallel parking. Also this car has awkward space in the trunk. It is deep and it looks huge but you cannot fit as much in the trunk as you think. The back seats are not for people who are taller then 6'5 (Thats how tall I am). I feel safe when driving this car on the road which is a good feeling to have.

Pros

This car has everything going for it. It's an LSE (Mercury version of the CV LX Sport) and has enough additional power to be noticed, but not enough to hurt the gas mileage.

Cons

Haven't found any, so far.

Grand Marquis Is Tops — I bought this car when it was 2-years-old, and had 38,725 miles. It's now at 272,500, and just keeps going. I've made it a point to keep this car maintained as recommended, and use synthetics when possible (Motorcraft Synthetic Blend motor oil). You can't go wrong buying a used, well maintained Grand Marquis or Crown Vic. (Obviously the Grand Marquis is the car to the left in the photo.) March 3, 2014 - now over 327K miles and is on the road every day. As I wrote before, it just keeps going.

Pros

Awesome car, easy to drive with lots of great features. Has been outstandingly reliable everywhere I've taken it.

Cons

A/C isn't working, will need tires and a driver's window switch eventually but both are still working.

Quiet, Reliable, Inexpensive Luxury — I have been very happy with this car and have gotten excellent use out of it. It is my daily driver. It's comfortable, quiet and has an excellent stereo system. I'll be sad to see it go, but am eager to see what my next vehicle will bring me.

Classy Affordable Luxury — Just purchased a 2003 Grand Marquis L S. I have owned a 1992 Cadillac Seville and most recently a Buick Park Avenue (1991) I traded the Buick in on the Marquis and they gave me $1000.00. The Marquis only had 91,500.00 kilometers and the dealer was blowing it out. I paid $9999.00 (Canadian) less the $1000.00 for the Buick. The ride is very smooth and acceleration although not as peppy as the Caddy, is more than adequate. I was surprised how well it handled, and how solid it felt driving it. I am very tall and found that it had loads of leg and head room. Decent sound system and I like the way the instruments on the dash are laid out. Overall, for the money I paid I think it is a great car. The only car I would purchase over this would be the Lincoln Town car (if I could afford it!)

Shawn Does 03 Grand Marquis — I find the performance is at the high end of rpm spectrum, it has needed repairs, but it has 165000 miles so that's expected. I love the way it looks, both inside and out. It's a bit of a gas hog, but you should know that with the 4.6 L V8. It is very fun, if you don't mind tight squeezes and people thinking you're 80 years old. Update- I'm up to 217,000 miles and it still runs like a brand new V8! So far I've replaced the air idle controller, mass air flow sensor, and the plastic (WHY FORD WHY PLASTIC!?) intake manifold. For a car that's got so many miles I don't think that's too bad at all.

Very Nice Car — I recently purchased this car replacing a 2000 F150 4X4 that did not fit my large behind. The salesperson brought this out and other than bumping the steering wheel a bit entering, the car is a great fit for a large person like me. Cadillac or Lincoln may possibly fit me better, but cannot afford them. I paid about the same as the other reviewers, betwixt 8 and 9 thousand. Quite satisfied, fixing the little beauty marks at present. This will make the car truly my own. Larry
