Way underrated! by I know cars. on 01/03/2007. Trim: 2007 Mercury Grand Marquis LS Premium, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: 1) Extremely safe (I know of many people who have been saved by the construction of this vehicle, and this is the very reason my wife and children are in one) 2) Great ride, comfort, and amenities for the price. 3) Excellent reliability, we have owned several. 4) Handles very well. 5) Mileage; I get 27 mpg on the highway with a V8! Not sure about city, but it is acceptable. 6) Great power when you need it. 7) Lots of room for passengers, and a huge trunk! Great for a large family. 8) Visibility of sourroundings. My wife is of smaller stature, she can see very well, and experiences easy stress-free driving and parking. She loves the adjustable pedals!
Cons: I really do not dislike anything, but I would like to see a few additions to make a great vehicle even better. 1) Make front and rear side impact air bags standard. 2) Make alloy wheels standard. 3) Make the police interceptor package more available to the public.
Overall review: I ask myself, what car they were speaking of when they rated this vehicle? This is by far the best choice of all purpose family sedan available, unless you start talking about large high line sedans with price tags of 55K and over. Take the Avalon for example....way overpriced at 40k. Most other sedans like the Avalon are very overpriced, with faux-luxury. They seem to rattle apart after 55k miles, leaking oil all over etc. These vehicles are plagued with electronic issues as well. Why would someone spend 40k (low side), when they can get an LS Premium Grand Marquis or Crown Vic for 30K, or under 20k if you go program? Why would a person pay for a front wheel drive vehicle with a V6 power plant, getting only 31-34 mpg when the Grand Marquis gives you 27 mpg with a big smooth V8? Add a moon roof,tint, the low profile spoiler, and the car assumes a classic sporty look. Corporations, fleets, and law enforcement, use this for a reason. Take one on a trip and see for yourself.
