DIRT CHEAP ROOMY RWD V8 -- I LOVE IT SO FAR

I love my LS. This is the 3rd used MGM in our family so far. I got all of them used for stupid cheap. This one had only 31.5k miles on it. Inside is all leather and walnut burl. When I bought it, the driver window was stuck down -- I had the armrest window switch replaced for $85, P&L. The tires looked dried out so I put on some new Michelin Defenders; not cheap tires but the ride immediately became smoother and quieter. The driver's visor vanity mirror lid was cracked -- I replaced that with a used eBay visor for $50. Other than normal wear items such as tires, a battery, etc, the car has been pretty much flawless. It now has 51k miles and runs like a top. Brake pads still have plenty of meat left on them. Car tracks straight and handles great. Decent pickup for a big car. Not a race car by any means, but easy to merge or pass someone with on the Freeway. Tons of seating room. Tons of cargo space. Nice for towing a light UHAUL trailer whenever you like. Woodtone steering wheel is wonderful, although I normally drive one-handed at 6 (and maybe also 9 o'clock) position and it's perfect for that. Wonderful bright headlights that light up the shoulder when you hit your turn signal. Integral fog lights. SIX...yes, I said SIX seatbelts. Takes flex fuel. Burns regular. Surprisingly good mileage on freeway -- over 26 mpg driving from LA to Sacramento area and back. In town, the mileage sucks, but remember, in LA you are idling a lot at red lights. Things I would like to change: Raise rear end a bit so hitch doesn't scrape. Brake function....although I may have some air in my brake lines. Driver seat is too benchlike; it is very comfortable, but I'd like more lateral support. Previous owner did not order with side airbags; I would have ordered those...

Nice car

Most of the reviews on the car are positive. However,if you read the Edmunds review, it sounds like this car belongs in the 19th century. What is the purpose of a car? To get one from point A to point B safely, comfortably, and reasonably economically. The Grand Marquis does all of this very well. I get 27 MPG on the highway and average 23 around town. I drive it conservatively. I'm tired of Edmunds and others running down these cars in favor of more sporty handling vehicles that corner better. What the heck do you need that for? As for interior space, the claim that the Sable is just as big is just not true. The Sable is 6" narrower. Maybe the 'experts' need to reassess a cars purpose.

I write this tonight as we have just sold our 2008 Grand Marquis LS. It's pillowy ride can lead to car sickness if you drive it on a curvy road. It wallows and bounces up and down like an ocean liner in a bad storm. Speaking of storms, it does horrible in adverse weather and to top it all off, we had a few quality concerns, though the drivetrain has ran flawlessly. Our previous Mercury, a '97 Sable, was the exact opposite experiance. The ride and handling were ballanced well and traction was never a problem. It also seemed to have more leg room which is why we sold the Grand Marquis and are purchasing a 2012 Taurus tomorrow. The quality of the leather alone in the Taurus is 10X that in the G

Wonderful car!!

My wife and I love her 2008 Mercury Grand Marquis "Palm Beach" edition. We purchased her Grand Marquis 14 months ago. It had 15700 miles. My wife had been driving a 2006 Lexus ES330 that was purchased new. It only had 18000 miles when we sold it. In many ways the Lexus was nice, but it had very uncomfortable seats. The Grand Marquis has exceedingly comfortable seats with lumbar support on both sides. Her Mercury also has the air suspension system and it rides like a dream. We would highly recommend this car. It is really a shame that it is no longer available as a new car, so my advice would be to find a low mileage late model Grand Marquis

Really nice car

This car has performed quite well. Performance: The car has a good amount of low end torque that will get this heavy car moving when you want it to. My only complaint here is the slight lack in higher RPM performance for when you pass during a high speed situation such as the freeway, it can take a bit to get it going a higher speed. Reliability: I have yet to have a major problem with it. I have done well in keeping it maintained and it has rewarded me with no major problems. I have even driven it across the country. The car is very comfortable with plenty of space for your passengers. The fuel economy is standard for any full size sedan. Just don't punch it everywhere.

Our 2008 Grand Marquis has been both a fun and reliable vehicle. Around town gas mileage is not a good as our 1997 Crown Victoria - Crown Vic was in the 16-17 mpg range, and the Grand Marquis is in the 14-15 range. While a major consumer magazine calls it an old and stodgy vehicle, it suits us just fine. We're very pleased with it.

I am updating my review from 3 yrs ago. The car is running great, it is still extremely comfortable but the paint is peeling off everywhere; very disappointing. It has already been repaired under warranty once and I will have to take it back to the dealer again for the same reason. It's really sad; such a beautiful car with such lousy workmanship. I hate to admit: I was wrong praising it.

Having owned and driven many late model cars, my 2008 Grand Marquis is one of the very best.Fuel mileage in the upper 20's hwy, extremely comfortable and roomy, excellent reliability, award winning safety record many years in a row. The so called experts would have you believe the body style is outdated and recommends buying one of the newer more up to date not so safe and not very comfortable boxie vehicles on the market they say is more stylish. Had you rather be in a not so safe stylish one or one that has won safety records years in a row if involved in a serious crash which could happen to anyone at anytime? I will stick to my Merc, its a great car.

My 2008 MGM is my fourth one in fourteen years, except for a 05 Lincon LS (what was I thinking?) the have been my only choice. What can I say, I like the car for all the same reasons aforementioned, but mostly for comfort and reliability. The only exception to this is that I have encountered a AC problem in three of the four I've owned. A 94, 98, 04, 08, and only the 94 was trouble free. But then again it is the only problem. If Merc. could get this right it's a Peach.

I bought my Grand Marquis new it was an 08 left over. I took the car in for an oil change, and a slight knock. after a three day diagnosis, came to find out that the #5 cylinder went bad. Ford approved a new engine to be installed can not find out if in fact a new engine is being installed or if its going to be a rebuild! Tried to get dealer to let me trade into something else, but after owning car for 6 months they said it depreciated $ 8000, so getting new engine, let see what happens!

At present, I have a 2002 Mercury grand marquis with 168,000 miles on it. I'm getting a 2008 Mercury marquis. The marquis is safe, priced right, comfortable to ride in, handles the road very well. A few years back, I hit an ice slick and collided with a delivery truck--the solid constriction of the grand marquis-saved my life!

Have been wanting a large sedan for sometime after driving a smaller car for the mileage as a commuter. Now retired and 56 I decided it was time and after studying all reports and reviews I was convinced that this tried and true design was perfect for me. Also the fact that the car was a demo with very low miles made the price and deal UNBEATABLE!! Very comfortable and easy to drive and for a V-8 has reasonable mileage and is very quiet and smooth. Great value.

I'm 28 not 60 and I love my Mercury did I mention that I'm 6,5 and have a family this car is safe and if you use the Cruise control you can get up to 30 mpg at (55 mph) the only complaint is the brakes could have been better. The stying is old but it's simple you don't have to go to school to learn all the gadgets. All in all it's a great dependable car

This is my four grand marquis, I have loved abouloutley all of them. I had a 1993, 1998, 2005, and know a 2008. THis will be my last grand marquis, as I am 85 years old. I love these cars, one of the only cars on the market with a bench seat. I cannot drive cars with bucket seats and a floor shifter. Its way too cramped and uncomfortable. The comfort in this car, doesnt compare to any others. It has all the features i need, love the heated seats. This car also gets great gas mileage. On a long distance trip to ohio, i got 27.8 MPG. Which is amazing for a V-8 full size car. I am sad they are discontinueing these cars.

This is my 5th Marquis. It's a 2004 purchased with 21,000 miles for a measly $14,500. Car needed some work to start, about 1,500 with some rear axle problems. I was surprised. After driving these things for 16 years its the largest repair bill ever. Well crafted, old style RWD, nice looking lots of room good handling a real highway car. You can't find a better machine without selling the farm. They rearly break down. Could be one of the best cars in the world for this price.

Before I bought my MGM, I test drove the baseline models of Lexus, Infinity, Cadillac, Jaguar and tried to test drive the Mercedes C300. They all felt the same and very much looked the same. Have to look close before I can tell them appart. Because of my job, I drive into Mexico every day; I need comfortable; feeling the road is not really desirable and with all these cars you actually feel the road. Went to the Opera recently and the wow's my MGM got were not been given to the CTS' and the Mercedes. In my opinion there is nothing wrong with old as long as it works well and looks great. What happened to distinctive US designs? Why do critics push for oriental clones?

This is my third Grand Marquis LS and most disapointing from purchase to quality. Love the big cars but this model has taken a step back. The materials used on the interior are cheapened plastics with sharp edges of the molding process left untrimed. Cup holder is sub standard, rubber shift arm cover prematurely wearing. Poor gas mileage, round town and hwy, avg 17.3mpg. Engine noise horrible, like a desiel, Mercury says it's the fuel injectors and normal. Normal or not, it's not quality. Exterior paint was not complete in hard to reach areas like inside door edge. After 5000 miles developed intense, intermitant, front end squeek of indetermined cause.

I have owned MGM since 1992 (that was the best I owned) Purchased the 08 brand new, I took the car in for oil change and to check out a noise at 2100 miles, 9 days later I had new engine installed! The Ford rep actually instructed the service manager to take the engine apart and repair it. Only after much shouting and going back and forth did the service manager convince Ford to give me a complete new factory engine. This will be the last MGM I will ever own.

The 2008 Grand Marquis is a fantastic vehicle. I love the exterior design and chrome. It's classy and classic. This car is a great ride, and it's price is not bad. It is smooth on the road, and it is powerful enough for all driving situations. When looking for a full-size car, check out the Grand Marquis. It's worth it.

I've had my car for 6 months now and I love it. Others can complain that this car is old fashioned, but I'll take this car anyday over any Honda, Toyota, etc. The front bench type seat leaves this big fella with terrific legroom unmatched in other cars. The trunk is great, with the trunk organizer and all the space. Okay, so it's not the greatest in handling around sharp turns and staying in lane. Big deal; I'm not going to race it.

Had an inexplicable 25- 26 mpg on old, old, off brand standard plugs. Replaced with newest, expensive Fomoco platnum, gold plugs: 22 mpg! If I could go in the garbage and get my old plugs back, I would. Just turned 200,000 miles. Still rides well The car has asked me for nothing in terms of repair. Okay, idler arm and a ball joint. I always use Mobil 1. I can't get rid of the car because it still runs so well. I use Michelan Symetry tires (pricey, but oh what a great ride). Got to say that I really like my '93 Gran Marquis.

When my 2008 is upshifting or when it downshifts going up a hill there is loud roar coming from the engine area. Sounds like a fan blade roar. The road noise in the interior is so loud the radio must be turned up to a point that when I stop at a stoplight the sound is extremely too loud. My local dealer and factory rep says the car meets standards. I previously owned a 2002 and was very happy with it, but it was much quieter than my 2008. I am extremely unhappy with Fords lack of response to address this issue. I have driven other 2008 Marquis and all of them have these issues.

We have a 2003 Crown Victoria that we have loved. We just bought a 2008 Grand Marquis with the new 17 inch wheels and I hate it. The car seems to have a mind of it's own when you are on the open highway. This is where the 2003 Crown Vic. is the most fun to drive but the 2008 Grand Marquis wants to drift all over the road. I think the problem may be that the front end is set up for the old 16 inch wheels and with the 17 inch wheels you are getting a wider bite of the road which causes it to want to drift. The high beams are also pretty useless. They do a great job of illuminating signs and trees but don't put much good adding light to the roadway. This may also be a 16" vs 17" setup issue.

I have ridden in these Ford sedans for over for all my life. My grandparents have had two Town Cars and a Crown Vic. The Grand Marquis, on the same platform, is simply one of the most comofortable sedans out there. It's got room, V8 power, comfort and traditional style, which stands out on today's roads. I hope Ford keeps these sedans around and updates them. Their comfort is hard to beat and it's a throwback to an earlier era, in which I wasn't even born, of big, luxurious sedans. No matter your age, young or old, the Grand Marquis offers great value and should be test driven!

This is my second Grand Marquis. I had a 2005 (Ultimate Edition). The only repair I made on the 2005 was front brake pads at 88,000 miles (I drove the car to 101,000 miles). Great repair record, great ride, roomy trunk, OK gas mileage. Feel that if the rebate is $5,000 or more the car is hard to beat.

An American icon. V8 with outstanding mileage and comfort. Quiet and good handling. On the way home from the dealer, it was getting over 26 mpg! Should get 30+ mpg with a K/N+Flowmaster+Mobil One. American V8 performance! I feel like my Father in the 50s 60s 70s 80s 90s always big Mercs. MSRP $26190 + dealer added deep tint glass. GS w/Driver's Conf.Grp. We stole our Norsea Blue one for under $17900! Compared to other cars. So much for so little! Highest 5 star safty! Thousands less than noisy tiny small 4cyl cars at 26 mpg? Gorgeous, classy, safe. Drive one, steal one, we did, its legal! Thanks Dad, I'm proud this Mercury reminds me of you. Miss you!......Your Son

The Grand Marquis represents an incredible value. I looked at the Avalon, Maxima and Camry and none of them even came close on value. The Grand Marquis has a reputation for reliability and low maintenance costs for thousands less than the imports. This is the most comfortable car that I have owned. Gas mileage is very good for a full size vehicle (23.5 City & 30 Highway). It has top safety ratings in all categories. Do yourself a favor and test drive one of these before you decide to buy an import.

I had a Crown Vic with 200K miles and never spent a dime except on regular maintenance, tires and brakes, so I bought the Grand Marquis LS and get 27 miles per gallon on the road at 65-75 mph. Rides great. Wonderful buy for the money. Accelerates very well, handles well and sits very comfortable Tried the Sable, but easily made the choice. Certainly a wonderful car; could not be more pleased, I like its design, even if it is more than a decade old. I am a young 68 years old who works out two hours a day, works a 12 hour day and enjoys life. This is a car for a person with the maturity and self confidence to handle it--a person who can afford to pay more, but chooses not to.
