Best car in America by JBB-Minnesota on 11/25/2009. Trim: 2005 Mercury Grand Marquis LSE, Owned 3 years.
Pros: This is a great road car. Dont listen to the experts. The people that are driving the Marques know what a fabulous and trouble free car this is, year after year after year.
Cons: One minor complaint. The rear seat doesnt have as much leg room as you might expect, but this is a minor flaw probably resulting from the use of the Marques as a squad car. The front seat area has the extra room
Overall review: Ive had five Marquees. Repairs are few and far between. 200,000 near trouble free miles on my current one. My sister in law is driving my previous one (2000) and she is coming up on 300,000. Just change the oil and tires. This car will run, run, run and when its all said and done total cost to own and operate will be lower than the Camery.

A Wonderful Car by Joe in Chicago on 08/16/2007. Trim: 2005 Mercury Grand Marquis LS Ultimate, Owned 2 years.
Pros: This car is smooth, quiet, comfortable, rear-wheel-drive driving dynamics gives the car excellent steering feel. The engine is wonderful. It's powerful and smooth with a nice, hushed growl. Best of all - I see 21 mpg in all around driving, as high as 30mpg on the freeway! The trunk is HUGE.
Cons: It's hard to find with a moonroof. If you want one, plan on adding it. But it's not difficult to do, nor very expensive ($900-1200). For its size, the overall interior space could be a bit better.
Overall review: This is a classic, big American car. Based off the same platform that underpins the Ford Crown Victoria and the Lincoln Town Car, it's a proven design. There is a reason so many limos, taxis, and police cars stick to this platform: it's reliable. Parts for these cars are cheap and can be found anywhere. Quality oil filters? $2.50. Fuel filter? $7.00. Air filter? $5.00. The EPA rates this vehicle much lower than it achieves in real world driving. For what this car is, the mileage is a bonus. I'm still a fairly young guy (35). People see my car and it throws them. Then they get inside, take a drive, and understand. These are great cars.

The ultimate big comfortable american cruisers by JAP27526 on 07/26/2012. Trim: 2005 Mercury Grand Marquis LS Ultimate, Owned 7 years.
Pros: Reliability, Handling, comfort, TCO
Cons: -not enough space to store stuff in the front -that Ford decided to discontinue it
Overall review: This car is just a dream in nearly all areas. The handling is very easy, the MPG is very good for such a big car with such a big engine, the comfort is on the level of a Mercedes E class, the reliability is excellent plus if something brakes the TCO for parts is very low, just have an eye on the transmission maintenance and regular maintenance as such and you will have a car you can ride forever.
