I bought this car a year and a half ago because of the raving reviews on this site. I spent $7,000 for a 2002 with 70,000 miles on it. Now at 100,000 miles I have to put $2,200.00 into the car. The whole front suspension is shot. Upper and Lower Ball Joints Sway Bar Links Idler and Pitman Arms I am very disappointed in my investment. Also that car gets horrible horrible gas mileage. Probably 12 miles to the gallon.

Pleasantly Surprised

I needed a reliable second car for the family and the dealership had this cream-puff on the lot. Garage kept, prestine condition. Have had it two weeks and am enjoying the 45 mile round trip commute to work. Surprisingly great gas milage, I use premium in the tank. Smoother than silk ride, corners like a dream. I definitely feel safe having my family in the car. I forsee many excellent years in this beauty. By the way, this is my first Ford...swore I would never own one...previously only owned Japanese or German...making a believer out of me.

I can't say enough good things about this beautiful car. I bought mine in February 2009 with only 56,000 miles on it and lots of garage time, so it is immaculate. What a pleasure to drive. Mine is the LS with the billboard size digital dashboard readings and all the bells and whistles. Though it is seven years old, everything works perfectly. Never and oil leak or a squeek or a squak. The ride will nearly put ya' to sleep. My worst MPG is 21.6 mpg and my best is 25.8. Nuttin' wrong with that. Love this car, and just wish Daddy could have seen it, as he loved Mercs! This is my first one after owning Dodges, Buicks, Olds, and Pontiacs.

The rear wheel drive remains appealing to this buyer given the mechanical simplicity of the power train. Proper winter snow tires are essential for driving on snow and ice and where permitted studded tires improve traction immeasurably. I have owned Lincolns through the years and the Marquis is of equal space and ride quality at a significantly lesser price.

My experience with FoMoCo products is that they are good ideas poorly executed. My Mercury is a case in point. While perfect for people looking for a traditional RWD sedan that owns the road, this car lacks the solidarity and reliability its predecessors possessed. It handles well for its size in braking, acceleration, and cornering. It also is a good ride on the highway. But don't expect too much from it. The engine has mounds of torque but is noisy when pressed. The engine is a great performer, but you got to go light on the gas unless you (a) can afford speeding tickets and (b) are related to a Saudi prince and have inherited your own private oil well.

I like the car in every way. It gets 19 mpg city/hwy. One can only sit on 3/4 of the front seats as the seat belt receptor is solid and sticks up through the seat. It can not be moved. Without that seat belt reception problem, one could sit in the middle of the seat and get support on the right side of the cushion. As it is one sits on the left side support and middle of seat: extremely uncomfortable. It would be ok for a small person, i.e., 100 pounds or less could sit in middle.

dumped 95 sse pontiac for a car that could hold 2 extra people for trips to town etc.,(bucket seats are for college kids- not FAMILY cars) and could never bring myself to buy a top- selling Asian car with no trunk or interior capacity, and front wheel drive durability inconsistencies, and wound up with the only option available that wasn't MEGA- Bucks,foreign, or a glorified station wagon (aka SUV). True more people would look at us if we had 23's, or full-fledge aero kits, flip down DVD's,etc. Oh well, the price you must pay if your wife tilts the scales at 300+, your kids pack enough junk for a weekend trip for a whole summer camp, and you have a lead foot that eats CV joints for breakfast

We were so excited to get into this buttery ride only to have our Marquis buzz killed when the fuel pump went out at 47,000 miles after only having it a month & one 400 mile trip under our belts. Another surprise was the terrible city mileage, much lower than the stated 17 mpg, around 10 mpg. Highway ok w/25 mpg. As I've seen mentioned I have to agree the lack of a center console leaves one stuffing everything into the paltry pockets given in the front seats or on the floor. So despite the wonderful smooth ride the overall economy leaves me wishing we'd shelled out for a Camry etc. PS.Loaner car during fuel pump was a Sable '05. It was a gas hog also (15mph?!). Ford/Mercury needs to wake up

I had a 1985 Grand Marquis LS and it was great until a 16 year old drunk driver smashed into the driver's side at over 50 mph. The car was totaled, my life was saved. I now own a 2002 Grand Marquis LS Ultimate, purchased new, and I couldn't be more satisfied with an auto. Gas mileage in town is 21 and on the hwy it's 26, great for a huge engine like the Grand Marquis sports. I feel so safe and comfortable in this car. I just wish the newer models had the same comfortable headrests that my 2002 has in place. I have 90,000 miles on the odometer and the car still drives like it did when it was brand new...still looks great too! A tremendous car for the money!!

This car is junk. I can't even start it half the time. The alarm system will not disarm. It had a water leak and smells like swamp water. There is nowhere to put anything. It is total junk. I've already had to replace the exhaust system. It is basically $22,000 worth of junk. I will never own another. That's a promise. Mercury will fix nothing. 36,000 miles and you own it baby.

I've had this car for nearly 3 years and love it..Very comfortable ride and great hwy. mileage (25 mpg). Only bad thing is town mileage is 12 mpg. The only thing that has gone wrong with this unit is the heater fan went out. With the leather interior it's very similiar to the Lincoln..body mounted on same platform. Purchased this car for $9,000 less than same year Lincoln. If you're looking for a large comfortable car with great hwy. mileage you won't find better in this price range....Now the sad note....I have to purchase an Expedition 4x4 for my business and we all know what kind of mileage they get.

I have an LSE, which was available in 2002; bucket seats, center console, 235 hp engine, dual exhaust, handling suspension and 3.27 rear end gearing. Had a 94 Grand Marquis that was so bulletproof, I bought another Grand Marquis. This one has been flawless as well, other than the driver's door speaker needs replaced or tightened. Starts, runs, and drives without any complaints. The car is much quicker and handles better than the 94, but the exhaust is noisier, the ride is firmer, and the steering much less isolated from the road. Not sure which I prefer, but the basic goodness is still there.

Cheap! Everything in this car is a piece of junk! Cheap! Cheap! Cheap! Well, it's good if you play bingo This car eats gas for terrible pickup.

2nd Grand Ma I've owned. Other was a '96 which I drove for 100k miles and loved doing it. My 2002 I bought used with 11,000 miles on it and it hasn't been a dissapointment at all. Rides great, acceleration good and gas mileage on highway averages 27 mpg. Love it esp. with the price of gasoline going up these day. Can't imagine buying another car unless they just stop making them. Highly recommend Grand Mercs. Bill

I want to make a few comparisons between this and my '94 Gran Marquis. Same: Road/Wind noise is too high, especially the windshield when it's raining. Odd huh? Suspensions: The '02 is MUCH stiffer than the old boat-like ride the '94 has. This would be personal preference for which is better. To me, the '94 is better for highway cruising. Interior: '02 is more stylish, but some of the items seem to be of cheaper material. I like the '94s button layout better. Exterior: '02 a bit sportier looking but I prefer the rims on the '94. '02s are very generic looking to me. Other stuff: Give me a real antenna! The built in one for the '02 just doesn't pick up the signal as well!

This piece of junk handles horribly and has horrible gas miles. Why can't Ford start making some cars not cruises. I also own a Toyota Avalon which is ten times better. The Mercury takes 9.7 seconds to get from o-60 with a v8 engine with 224 HP and the Avalon takes 8.5 seconds with a v6 engine with 210 HP. If you want a big boat go Linclon, Toyota, Lexus, or Acura. This car has been in the shop ever 40,000 miles. It has mainly been in the shop for electric problems and loud radding. Go Toyota Boo Ford!

Compared to my prior 1995 Mercury Grand Marquis LS, my 2002 has a poorer ride quality and far poorer gas mileage. My '95 got 28 mpg on the highway and over 20 mpg around town. My 2002 gets 16 mpg. My 2002 downshifts going up the slightest grade, and my dealer can do nothing about it..."It's controlled by the electronic engine module".

This is the second Grand Marquis I have owned in the last three years and I am amazed that everyone doesn't drive one. I have found the cars to be the best value on the highway today. With Mobil 1 in the crankcase the engine performs flawlessly producing approximately 19 MPG in town driving and 24 Highway. I am a REALTOR and have spent $0 in repairs and at 6'3" I am able to transport 5 other adults around in relative comfort. Please do not Europianize this American Icon. I have no need for an uncomfortable sedan that has a skidpad rating of .9.

I had been driving a Buick Park Ave for the last five years and became spoiled for a large highway cruiser. I wanted to get a Lincoln Towncar (mostly because, hey, it's a Towncar) but found that the Grand Marquis was, basically, a Lincoln for alot less cash. So far, my only complaints are that it isn't as quiet as my Buick. There is annoying wind noise at highway speeds that make me want to turn the stereo up. Also, the factory tires spin on wet pavement when accelerating moderately from a stop. Unfortunately, I haven't driven it in over 10 months since I have been in Iraq but looking forward to returning to those smooth leather seats soon.

The BEST new and used cars on the market! The value, reliability, and driveablity of these cars is outstanding. Don't let the Edmund's review of "difficult to manuver and park" fool you. It's got power steering! What a joke. I guess if that's all they can come up with, it must be a pretty good car. Don't be influenced about a percieved "negative" image. All my 20 and 30 year old friends love both my Crown Vic and this Mercury LSE.

While the GM may not have the title of a Lincoln Town car or Cadillac in its name, I cannot find that these other cars can give you the same comforts and quaility of a luxury car at the price that you can get a GM at. So I cannot see myself spending an extra 10 or 15 thousand just for a name so a the Grand Marqui is one of the best value money can buy for a large family car.

TRADED A LINCOLN TOWN CAR FOR THE MERCURY GRAND MARQUIS LS AND THE RIDE IS VERY SIMILAR AND LUXURIOUS. EXCELLENT ACCELERATION AND DRIVEABILITY. VERY COMFORTABLE ON LONG TRIPS AND LESS TIRING. EXTERIOR DESIGN GIVES A QUALITY IMAGE. INTERIOR DESIGN DUPLICATES THE LINCOLN TOWN CAR WITH ALL THE BELLS AND WHISTLES. HUGE TRUNK SPACE.

After much shopping around looking at comparitable cars, I chose the Grand Marquis because of its size, V8 engine, and rear wheel drive. This car was thousands cheaper than comparable cars with the same equipment and platform. The car has plenty of smooth, quiet power coupled with a turnpike ride that suits my tastes. While it doesn't shine in fuel economy, it still gets much better milage than a 64 Dodge Dart I had with a 273 V8. Overall; I think the Grand Marquies and the Ford Crown Victoria are two of the best values for full size cars in todays market.

I just bought this car a few weeks ago, and an still in the honeymoon stage of ownership. Let me tell you why I bought it... I was getting tired of small/medium cars and wanted a larger car with a lot of premium features. This car is VERY comfortable, and the ride is smooth. Granted, I'm probaby one of the younger buyers of a car reserved for a more mature audience, but I wondered why I haven't looked into a larger car sooner. I was going to wait for the 2003 models, but with the fantastic deals, I bought the 02 Grand Marquis Ultimate edition.

My new 2002 GS Conv is second to 95. NO BETTER VALUE. Interesting to see changes over years, adding anti-lock brakes, driver's power lumbar, cornering lamps, keyless entry (part of conv group and includes moveable pedals), bigger battery, improved AC, front reading lamps, but removed illuminated front door "lamp reflectors" (side of door when you open door, replaced by reflectors), reduced gas tank (21 to 19), deleted trunk toplid carpeting and glove compartment damper (it just falls now, instead of a soft opening), return of locking gas lid (95 had it, but eliminated through 01 and returned in 02), removal of a separate trunk key and locking trunk remote release.

Which is a good thing since I'm only 45. There just comes a time in every man's life when he gets tired of those small, 4 passenger, no power cars. When you're ready for something bigger with some major power, the GM is it. Truth be told I really wanted a DeVille, but for a little more than half the price I got the same style, roominess, comfort and POWER! OK maybe it doesn't have the GPS. A real man wouldn't use that anyway. When you're ready to give up on those toy(ota) cars and step up to some style, check out the Grand Marquis. For the first time in 15 years, I'm not embarrassed to offer to drive.

This is a great car for its intended buyers. It's good-looking without being flashy. It is powerful with relatively good gas mileage. It handles well except when going over large bumps or washboard pavement, when it loses its direction. It's quiet inside and has a tastefully done interior. I've only found a few faults. The door-checks are useless. The front power windows are under-powered. I wonder how long they'll last past the warranty. Although it's billed as a six passenger car, it's really only good for five passengers. The middle front "seat" is only good in a pinch. Overall, though, it's a great car for the money!

You can buy a better auto but you can't buy a better auto for the same amount of money. Comfortable, smooth, powerful engine and a car design delight for the eyes.

This is the third Grand Marquis that I've owned. The reason... I can't find another auto that comes close to delivering the bang for my buck. The engine is strong and the Premium ride is that of a Town Car, of which I possess as well. Solid built, comfortable ride, dependable and not to mention big enough to sit across from another person without rubbing shoulders. Paul
