    Grand — THIS CAR IS A perfect USED CAR for any age group, JUST THE thing you might need just for family ventures in the city, but if your a single man i wouldnt suggest picking up honies in it without adding 22" rims.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: DURABLE

    Cons: ITS A MS DAISY KIND OF CAR LOOK

    Fantastic Pimpmobile If You Can Find One In Great Shape. — I've had this car for a couple of weeks and it surpasses anything I've driven yet. I love a big car, and until now my old Buick Lesabre was my favorite, but this one has more oomph under the hood, and it's got an even plusher ride. It's like cruising down the highway on my living room couch. I lucked out and found a 97 with no rust and only 70000km for 2700 bucks. It had some work done to it too; the cursed plastic intake manifold was replaced with a newer reliable one and he put a few performance parts on it, presumably to make it less of an old-man's car. Great car, and I intend to drive it until it dies. With a little luck, that'll be a good long time.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Big land-yacht. Big engine. Big! Lots of power to pass on the highway. Full featured.

    Cons: It's a 4.6 V8, so it probably gets the same mileage as your average full-size pickup truck.

    Great Car — good times with that car, lasted a long time until the heater core and the starter went then it sat in the driveway for a while until i traded it for a fourwheeler if i could have that car back again i would , it was like driving a boat and it had lots of power almost never let me down but it had its days hahah

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: huge back seat  hahahah

    Cons: nothing

    Best "new" Car I Ever Owned. — I loved this car. It was my first car purchased from a dealer in my post college years, and will forever be in my memories. I went some wonderful places in that car, and I learned alot about what it takes to maintain a car with a note still hovering over head. Lol. I had barely ANY issues with this car, and the 4.6L plant had enough balls to get where I needed to go when I needed to get there. I regret trading this car for the LS, but you don't live with knowledge of all future bad investments.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It is VERY comfortable and offers itself for upgrades.

    Cons: I don't know where it is to buy back. Lol.

    My G-marq — This was a great car. We had a lot of good memories together. Power was on the ok side; however, there was room for six, it was reliable as dirt, and it was very classy, despite the awkward green color. It got reasonable gas mileage for such a large car. I loved it.

    Pros: Big, roomy, and classy

    Cons: Weak on power and handling.

    Mercury Grand Marquis — Bought cheap tempted by the big 4.6L V8 engine. This is the airchair on wheels every retired bloke wants. It's comfortable and easy to drive with 6 seats, 3 across the front and back. A perfect motorway cruiser and did I mention how ultra comfortable it is ? Currently for sale at only £2000k with an 11 month MOT !

    Pros: Comfort, comfort and more comfort

    Cons: Big lump juicy on fuel

    Awesome — It's the only car I'll ever need. Has 95,000 miles now, and it's good for another 300,000.

    Pros: Four door. V8. RWD.

    Cons: Weighs two tons.

    Low Km, Salmon On Beige Int. Great Condition, No Dings Or Scratches! — 135,000KM as of December, 2007. Great car in mint condition, bought in 05' replacing my 1987 Grand Marquis which I had sold (still on the road with nearly 300,000KM!) These cars will go on forever, very safe and reliable.

    Pros: Safe, Reliable, Big trunk

    Cons: poor fuel economy

    says:
    This is the most reliable car Ive ever owned hands down. The 4.6 V8 they put in a lot of Grand Marquis is a super reliable Motor. My Mercury has 125K and doesnt leak a drop of oil. Not the best looking but If you want a problem free car for the most part this is it.
    Power Ranked 2002 Lexus ES 300 worse.
    "Mercurys 4.6 V8 is a stronger Motor."
    Would Buy Ranked 2002 Lexus ES 300 better.
    "We wanted a slightly smaller car but still a sedan and we wanted something a little newer."
