Great cruiser! by Mike - Santa Maria, CA on 12/10/2007. Trim: 2002 Mercury Grand Marquis LS Premium, Owned 4 years.
Pros: Powertrain, seating, performance. Very reliable! A lot of trunk space.
Cons: DPFE (EGR) sensor failed prematurely. Check engine light report P0401 and P0402. Error went away once I replaced the sensor. Back seats are a little tight if you have 2 adults in fron and 2 adults in the back.
Overall review: This is a very comfortable and reliable vehicle. We have made many long-distance trips and always comment on the performance and comfort of our vehicle. We purchased this with 20K miles and it has over 114K now. I've replaced the DPFE sensor once (<$50, do it yourself repair), and the brakes once as well. The rear struts went out at about 60K miles. I perform regular maintenance according to the owners manual. You'll get about 400 miles to a tank doing all highway at about 74 mph. You'll get anywhere from 300-350 miles to a tank city driving. I wash the car weekly, and wax 2x per year. I say this only because the paint/body is still in great condition... even after sitting in the Sacramento, CA heat.
