Really comfortable car. Reasonable handling. Nice ride with Air Suspension (I know, the air scares some people). Have to watch for head gasket failure because of iron block and aluminum heads (different expansion rates). Proven reliable platform and 4.6 is rocksteady. Tuned for smooth power delivery and quite performance. Has no problem getting out of it's own way. I bought this car with 50000 miles, put a little money in to freshen it up and I love it. Also put a new radio, being a 2000 still had a tape player(tape player in 2000?). The cup holders kind of suck but I'm just nitpicking now. It now has 91000 miles, only costs are air conditioning and basic maintenance (oil, gas, tires). If you can get a low mileage gem with a good body it's a good buy. If someone was looking at a car like this to pick up I would recommend. I still really like the car. I get some grief because it's an "old mans car" but that's ok. Easy and cheap to fix. Not much changed till they stopped producing in 2012. They became more reliable and gas efficient. It's a real good car. No regrets.

It's an okay car

My family has had this for 12 years. I have to say, I'm surprised it has lasted this long with us. The engine is great. Very powerful and quick to take off. Will definitely spin a pair of tires off. But, the transmission was terrible from the start, and the interior sizing is terrible for a car of its size. It's like they crammed to much sound canceling material into it before they thought about how they were going to fit the seats into it with enough room for the passengers to be comfortable in it. Air is great, I like the fact that it is a climate control system. Radio is terrible. And the rearview mirror is placed entirely to low. I wouldn't recommend this car to really anyone.

This car puts comfort and reliability above all else. It is amazingly comfortable although I wish the seats offered more side bolstering to keep you in place through the turns. It is VERY reliable. nothing has broken or worn out in its 62K mile life. Lots of room in the cabin and trunk though Id like a center console for storage. The driving experience is muted by vague steering and minimal road feel. The car wallows over bumps and turns and doesn't instill confidence in its handling, especially in wet conditions. The power train is adequate and the car never feel out of breath although more power would be welcome for passing. MPG is ok given its a 2 ton car, I get about 19.

I bought this car used in 2003 and it had only 9,200 miles on it. It now has 100,000 miles on it. The actual repair costs have been less than $1,000. I get 21 MPG around town and 25 MPG on the highway at 70 MPH. It's, without question, the best car I ever owned. I can't understand why Ford is discontinuing manufacture of the Mercury line. I guess they are trying to force us into "golf cart" cars.

I think this is one of the best cars ever made. I have had many cars over years, this is 1st one I have complete faith in running all the time. Comfort is grand and mileage is 23 to 25 hwy and 20 to 22 city for v8 that is outstanding. I have 120,000 and still hold mileage rate high. I would recommend anyone to buy this model and never look back.

I purchased the 2000 Grand Marquis Mercury LS as a 'program car' meaning it had been owned by Avis Rental Cars and it had 20,000 miles on it. It is over 135,000 miles now and I have had less trouble with the car than any I ever owned. I love the way it handles, the huge trunk and carrying capacity. I sincerely enjoy the 8 cyl engine for its quick speed in traffic in the city. The single drawback is the low gas mileage, but it does use regular gas so that has helped. I want to purchase another car exactly like this one!

I am 16 almost 17, and this is my first car, and it is awesome. I am the only one at my high school that drives a Grand Marquis, and all my friends that drive Mustangs and foreign cars are just in awe of this car. For a car that weighs 5,237 lbs it does an excellent job. I normally gets 22-25 MPG around town, and 27-35 MPG on the highway. The ride is just as good if not better that a Cadillac, because it just floats down the road. And as far as performance and handling it does really good. It has a 16V 4.6L V8 that produces around 233 HP stock. And the traction control is rather nice on icy mornings, beacuse I just put it down in first gear and it's like there is no ice. This is a great car!

Well as if the Grand Marquis GS or LS was not great already. They did build a few that was even better. The HPP (handling & performance package ). Most don't know about these because there is no marking on the cars. They came with bigger swaybars,beefed-up trans,bigger brakes,air-ride,digital dash, dual exhaust,3.55 gears, leather wrap steering wheel, lacey spoke wheels, speed sensative steering and rated at 29HP more than the regular GS or LS. They are faster than the P71 (police car) with a better ride than the Towncar. I have 92,000 miles on mine and only had to do the basics to it (tires, brakes, wipers a battery and the license plate light. Not bad for a 9 year old car! The HPP gets 17, 25 hwy

I bought this car with 73,500 miles on it and I would have to say, it runs really good. I did some preventative maintence on it when I first got it and after that, the car runs like a dream. I get about 23 mpg average just running around town. I would have to say that that is extremely well for a V8 engine.

Purchased new, have 169,000 miles. Replaced all four brake pads at 167,000. Replaced a/c comp at 148,000. No other cost except tires, oil changes, and transmission service. Have traveled on many long trips. Gas mileage from 23.8-to 25.0. I have the handling package with the 3.55 gear, dual exhaust, 16 inch rims. Mileage is better at below 70 MPH. My speed is 70+. This is my third panther body vehicle.

Drove it from south Florida to North Carolina and averaged 29 mpg around 65 mph! Outstanding! A big comfortable highway cruiser for our occasional road trips. I've since added dual exhaust, rear air shocks and replaced those awful plastic wheel covers with the cast aluminum laced wheels. Will also have to replace the original intake manifold (with plastic coolant passages) before our next trip. Only design flaws are radio and heater controls not in easy reach, wide floor sill under doors makes exiting the car a little clumsy. Power windows are getting slow, common for Fords.

Owned mine 8 years so far.

Purchased this brand new. Excellent car. No breakdowns in over 8 years. All I did was routine maintenance. The coolant temperature sensor went bad 3 years ago, but everything still works fine. Surviving 8 Michigan winters with no rust, and the original exhaust system still in great shape is a miracle. If gas weren't so high I'd be buying another one. I do mostly city driving, but my car still gets great mileage on the highway. It's like driving in the safety of a tank with a sofa inside.

This car has been the best in reliability of any cars I've owned. I have had the car for 8 years and never had to put a dime into it. It still looks and runs great. The gas mileage around town is about 18 miles a gallon and about 22 on long drives. It would be great for older folks who can't get in smaller cars.

Ancient design. For a car this large interior space is disappointing, Chrysler's cab forward design makes offers far more interior space, roomy in front seat but back seat leg room is disappointing. Car is not very nimble. But suspension is not mushy like some cars in this class, body roll not excessive. Huge trunk. Easy to get in and out. Pretty good acceleration.Car has been very reliable but steering wheel locked up and had to be towed to shop. Okay gas mileage for such a big car. Exterior dimensions of car seem excessive, not as bad as the boats of the 1970's but still a very large car.Boring style. Not much fun to drive.

This car is so good, it's like not owning a Ford. After 70,000 miles, exactly zero dollars and zero cents in unscheduled maintenance. Incredible value especially as a used car. High altitude seems to hurt the performance inordinately, but maybe it's just me. A Toyota should be so reliable. Very large trunk is a little oddly shaped. This was done to fix exploding gas tank. Still, I wish they would do another work-around to bring back true "three body trunk" capability. Easily the best kept secret in the auto world.

This is a marvelous car...my fourth Panther platform Ford. The car has so many aftermarket performance parts that it is hard to believe. There is actually a small performance cult that has grown up around them Mine has dual exhaust, with Dynaflows and an X-pipe, as well as Kumho A/S 795 tires (stock Michelins are a joke). I added a Superchips powertuner. I probably have about 260HP as of now and still get over 25 mpg/highway. Why people complain about the mileage on these cars baffles me...if you want a Honda Civic, go buy one! This car weighs 4,000 pounds. Addco sway bars and Bilstein shocks make the car handle dead flat. There is a reason why police use these cars (Ford CV version).

I bought this car in May of 2006 for my wife, Being 22 years old I was ify about buying whats classified as an elderly persons car, but it is great. It had 51,000 miles on it when we bought it and within 2 weeks of owning it we went on a trip from souther florida (home) to Vermont to visit family. With gas at about $3 a gallon it only cost us about $200 to drive from florida to Vermont. It was extremely comfortable and we were albe to fit everything in the trunk! In the trunk we had 3 medium suitcases, 2 large suitcases, 4 fishing poles, 3 tacle boxes, 6 person tent, 2 sleeping bags, playpen and stoller. The Drive was comfortable and I'd recommend this car to anyone, simply awesome!

I'll buy another one.

This vehicle has performed extremely well, with super handling and comfort and most of all it is a safe vehicle for my wife in town and on the highway. Power is great and gas mpg is good. As a race car driver in the past, I really like rear wheel drive and this car has met all my expectations!

Acceleration is adequate or good if you are lucky enough to find one with the performance package this car has been very economical, cheap insurance good gas milage (27 mpg at 75 mph) and only about $200 in repairs at 130k thats doing a lot of towing too

This is the third Grand Marquis that I have owned. I buy them with about 50,000 miles for about 50% of their original sticker price and easily put on another 100,000 with very few repairs. They offer enough room for me, my spouse, and our three kids for medium length trips. (We use the van for longer jaunts.) It is very comfortable on highways as I travel for business or recreation, and the white car with a law enforcement profile doesn't hurt either.

While decidedly "old tech," the Grand Marquis is comfortable, performs adequately well, and gets better gas mileage than all but the smallest SUV's. The car has good crash test results, and mine, bought used, has been completely reliable. While this car doesn't handle like a sports car, with the handling package, mine handles well for such a large, low- tech car.

I'm a "snow bird" and leave this car in Florida year round and drive another car back and forth from Indiana. The Grand Marquis has been reliable so far, and is comfortable. The steering feels kind of numb, but the handling is ok for such a big tank, helped by the handling package on my car. Considering the size of the car and my many short trips, it gets decent gas mileage, 17-18 ave. I get 25 on the highway, better than most 6 cylinder SUV's.

Car is dangerous to drive in the rain or when roads are wet. Brakes pull to right so bad it changes lanes in about 50 feet. The driver really has to pay attention. Mercury does not have a fix for the problem. In the snow a good driver has more control with the traction control turned off, however every time you start the car you have to reach over, open the glove box and turn it off. What a place to put a switch. I will be switching to GM if I can find someone to buy this on a Sun

I bought my 2000 Grand Marquis about 6 months ago. What a DREAM it is to drive! I love the soft ride and the quiet engine. The fuel mileage is better than should be expected from a car this size! My mother has a 2002 Toyota Avalon and she does not get the MPG I get with my Merc! Having sold my Pontiac Bonneville to move up to the Grand Marquis I have decided that I will continue to purchase the Grand Marquis from now on! Would not trade it for any car on the road!

I bought used with 32K miles. Now have 36K miles. Avg 24.0 MPG for those 4K miles. Very quiet ride, I like the full size. Like the ABS and traction control. Previous car was 91 LINCOLN Town car. Transmission should be OK since it is the same one on my 2000 Ford E150 Van (4R70).

This car has the ride and confort of a 70's boat. But thats all it has in common. This car handles better than my 93 escort did. It gets better gas milage than my 98 ranger 4cyl .It has plenty of power This car is a great minivan alternative. All 3 of my kids (two in car seats) fit comfortably in the back. And you can buy a model that is a few years old at a dirt cheap price. I am basing the relibility in part on my 1984, which would put any toyota or honda to shame.

First Class Luxury!

I was looking for an inexpensive car and ended up with pure luxury. It has good power and a great ride. The finish both inside and outside is superb with quality workmanship. Can't believe they sell them so cheap!!! I had a choice between a GS with 15000 miles or an LS with the whole works including dual exhaust with 27000 miles....I chose the LS.

This is an excellant car except for the transmission going out at 40,000 miles. Very comfortable and great mileage for this size car.

The only big complaint I have about the car is, the brakes keep squeeking and the rims keep clicking. I am told the brakes squeek because the have steel in them and the rims click because of a design flaw. My dealership told me this. Other than that it is a great car. Alot of car for the money.

Awsome car

After having my offer turned down on a '98 Cadillac Deville d'Elegance, I setteled for this 2000 Grand Marquis LS. This car is loaded with most all options available: dual power seats, dark, charcoal leather, 6-CD changer in the trunk, aluminum wheels, climate controlled a/c, etc... I read in Edmunds.com that a loaded-up Grand Marquis is as good as a Lincoln Town Car, but for many thousands less. I agree!
