I went to this dealership with my son just to look around so I can get some idea on how much used full size trucks are going for. I liked the selection and the prices were reasonable. Ariana was the person who helped us out. She was incredible. She was not pushy and she was a subject matter expert when it came to the right truck with all the features I was looking for and my budget. I highly recommend this dealership and ask for Ariana.

I got this car with 12000 miles and put on additional 100000 on it. I got as high as 28 mpg and lowest was 16 mpg.. comfort hard to beat the big sled. Ride is soft and pretty quiet. I took many long trips without a bit of trouble. I always run synethic oils and its like new yet. Wish they were still made.

I'm 6'3" and 300 lbs., and most cars made since 2000 are WAY too small to accommodate a man my size. Not so with the 2009 Grand Marquis. I have more headroom and legroom in this car than I'll ever need, although the back seat is a bit cramped. That's not an issue for me, as I rarely have any passengers in the car with me, and if I did odds are they'd be a lot smaller than me and just fine with the rear seat accommodations. I bought this car in 2011 for less than 1/2 the original MSRP and something like 27 K on the odometer because it was a fleet vehicle and the Grand Marquis was slated to go out of production that year. In the four years I've owned this car, the only maintenance costs I've had are a new set of tires and regular oil changes. I wouldn't even had to purchase new tires if the ones that were on the car when I purchased it hadn't dry-rotted. (I live in the West, and the desert sun and heat rots rubber like you wouldn't believe.) The steering column shaft was replaced under recall by the local Ford dealership in April 2015 even though my car is six years old, so kudos to Ford for having the integrity to stand behind its products even though they've discontinued the Mercury nameplate. The only downside of the car are the low (around 11) MPG's, but that's probably because I do mostly city driving and run the A/C (terrific, by the way) 8-9 months of the year. Fortunately, my round trip mileage to work is less than 10 miles, so even with gas currently at $3.15/gallon locally, the low MPG isn't really an issue for me. I'm sure that the fuel economy would probably double if I drove on the interstate more often. The 2009 Grand Marquis is one of two vehicles (the other being the Ford Ranger) that I wish Ford hadn't discontinued. Both are reliable, low maintenance vehicles that will easily go 200,000 miles with proper care. Hey Ford, how about making more vehicles without all the latest gadgets for us old guys?

For the past 25 years I have bought nothing but Ford cars; this is my last one! While many of the most important things about this car are good (comfort, handling, reliability, etc.) too many others are awful! The flimsy grill brackets, both visor mirrors, the gear-shift boot, the heavy plastic guard under the bumper . . . all broke or broke off within six months of the warranty ending. In the past several years many other things have mysteriously gone wrong; the headlights only go on if the cars in gear, the "air-conditioner" and heater both only blow HOT air and they blow it whether or not they are turned on! Hot air ALL the time! I'm running out of space so I'll just say "Bye Ford!"

I've owned 12 Crown Victoria and Grand Marquis sedans since 1989. I came across a 2009 Grand Marquis LS Ultimate Collection with just 8.400 miles on June 1, 2011. This car is not only the best full size Ford product I've ever owned, but the BEST car I've ever owned ! Say all you want about being dated, but these cars were a salesman's dream....no failure along the side of the road. Ever. The evolution from 2004 to 2009 was a continued improvement in ride and transmission driveability, shift points, etc. I've just retired and feel set for many years to come. Remember the "special feel of an Oldsmobile" ? As long as I can, I will have the "special feel of a full size Ford product".

I am a limo driver. We have a fleet of Linc/Mercs/Ford E350 vans and a Rolls Royce Silver Spur. The owner is religious on oil changes and tire rotations on these vehicles. They drive from Pa to JFK, Manhattan, NY, Newark, NJ and etc DAILY. That is 10,000/MONTH/vehicle! They are flawless, reliable, comfy and great mpg on the hwy. City driving isn't as good as hwy. I've driven Gr Marquis in snow storms to JFK to pick-up passengers already. Stop beating these cars up. The trunk space is nearly big enough to haul 1/2 a house! Ford is making a terrible mistake dropping this car in 2011. I am very partial to them and have owned 3 Gr Marq's myself with NO REGRETS!

it handles well and the overall performance is great except for the gas mileage which is between 14-15 miles per gallon. I average driving about equal city and distant and have also tried high test gas to see if this would improve my mileage but to no avail. please give me so ideas to increase the gas mileage as i have a 1996 ford truck that does this well. thank you

I've owned fast cars, sporty cars, vans & crossovers. I'm impressed with the comfort and visibility of this automobile. I have no need for fast acceleration off the starting line, the fuel economy is ok, and I don't have to lean over to see out of the car. For trips longer than to town, it is great. Styling may be old to some, but styling isn't my thing.

I have owned the Mercury Marquis for 13 Months and it's provided me with great transportation. Most of the driving is over the road and it gets 26 mile/gal. if I keep it under 70. Towe a 1,700# boat with no problem. I think it is the best car on the road for the money.

I have to admit that I never considered a crown vic or grand marquis but after driving a crown vic as a company car for several long trips I was so impressed I went and bought a 2009 Grand Marquis. I love this car and hope the stories of reliability hold true for me as I drive many miles each week and look forward to the trips in this car.

Nine years ago I went from a bullet proof Crown Vic into a Chevy Impala, which was a mistake. My Impala nearly fell apart at 90K miles, so it was a no brainer to return to the 'panther' platform Ford. I have to admit that the convenience features of the Impala are missed such as console storage, homelink, and very functional cup holders, but the ride, and spacious interior make up for it in the Grand Marquis. I have to admit that I had forgotton about the 'old man' jokes that come with this car (I am 40 years old).

When I bought the Grand Marquis I knew what I was getting: an old fashioned, large, comfortable cruiser. I like the simplicity and traditional design. Edmunds' review is too harsh. Not everyone wants a $50k BMW or Mercedes. Try it out for yourself and see what I mean.

Bought my first Grand Marquis in 1992. Ran it for close to 350,000 trouble- free miles. My 2009 model seems to be no different than the 1992 model. Rides like a dream, great power from the V-8 engine, and more room than you could ask for. The segue from a 17 year old model to a new one could have been accomplished while blindfolded. Fit and finish is outstanding. I hope they never stop making the Grand Marquis.

I always wanted to drive large 1970 styling cars like the 1975 Impala and cars of that era. I was surprised to find this car still in production! The Mercury Grand Marquis is for those who love old fashioned large V8 sedans and i bet this car will quench your thirst.

I have owned a Grand Marquis for 23 years and just purchased my 7th one, a 2009. The care still rides and handles very well and looks good. I was disappointed to find they have removed the compass, the automatic parking brake release and the Home Link.

First, I'm a young guy. In past, always bought Toyota, Honda and Volvo. Fate made me stop at by Mercury dealer when I was looking for replacement for car that broke down at 100k miles. Salesman asked what I was looking for and I pointed to the Marquis as a joke. He gave me keys and I said what the heck and drove it. I then bought it. I'm well over 6 feet tall and this is first car that I can stretch out my legs. Ride is ridiculously comfortable and I float down the highway. Yes, steering is squishy but this is not a sports car. Talked to a mechanic who's been replacing engines over 20 years and he never worked on a Marquis. So comfortable, reliable, cheap. You must drive this car.

I love this car!!

Everyone complements the ride and drive after they have had a chance to get inside. It has such a smooth and comfortable ride much different from the smaller cars but I don't sacrifice mileage for it.

the 2009 mercury grand marquis, changes were made not to my liking. the gas pedal is TOO vertical, ( needs to be more on an angle) this is causing greal nerve pain in the entire leg. The break pedal is too high, can no longer move foot from the gas to the break easly. More pain in the shin portion of the leg. These obvious changes were not present from model years 1992 thru 2007. I had no problem with these models.
