1989 Mercury Grand Marquis LS 5.0 liter
Very smooth ride
Gas line blew out.
Exhaust had a hole in it.
Transmission is starting to go.
Interior is worn (mainly due to the previous owner smoking and burning it by accident).
Brake light switch needed replacement.
Trunk release button won't work.
Locks don't work.
Despite all of the faults that I've had with this car, I really enjoy having it. Living up in the northern part of Maine, some commutes are really long and this is the car to do them in. The winters up here really do a number on the roads, but this thing seems to glide right over the imperfections and potholes.
I only paid 700 for this car, and have only put in about 500-600 of work into it. I don't get to drive it very often, but when I do, I'm always pleased with it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
