Pros

Very comfortable, it's like owning a boat with wheels.

Cons

Doesn't have the power of a V8, grandpa car.

A Big Comfortable Boat With Wheels. — I was expecting more power from this V8, but it felt more like a V6. 0-60 10sec. It has traction control, very helpful in rainy conditions. Overall this car is very fun to drive around with, if you're hanging out with friends or family.

Pros

Extremely reliable car, no major damage and still like new interior

Cons

Finding a shop that know how to change the oil properly.... not every car will run on 4qts of oil, especially this car!

Love It! — Great daily commuter with style and comfort, plenty of interior space and horsepower to get you from point A to point B and then to point C and point D and then some! Love this car, it was no trouble at all!

Cons

Cost of replacement parts and labor

Keep Your Grand Marquis...they May Be One Of The Last "big" Cars! — Overall, I like it. Not particularly fond of new style flasher panel or the airflow control board to direct air to desired vents. Have replaced 2 flashers ($$$$) and need the airflow control board ($$$$$$$$$$$). Good mileage, comfortable ride, classic big FoMoCo styling!

I Would Definately Buy Another Grand Marquis — It doesn't accelerate as smooth as I would like. But it's easy to handle and the brakes are great. One of the most comfortable cars I've ever owned. My only compaint is the gas mileage, only gets 18-20 mpg. I love driving this car!!!

As Good As It Gets For Under 30k. Got Mine At 3 Years Of Age With 22 Thousand Miles At $13,000. — Why more people are not tuned into this kind of quality is a mystery. Rides strong, tight and dreamy, and always feels safe, maybe partially because of its low center of gravity. Comfort beyond what smaller cars are capable of providing, what with its big 1st class airline type seats. On the highway, I'm getting 29 mpg without trying too hard. And believe it or not, with the rack and pinion steering, it even feels a bit sporty sometimes. Best of all, it's made here in North America.
