General Comments:

Handling option is great. The faster you go, the better it handles. Strong acceleration.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Amazed that a Grand Marquis found its way to Saudi Arabia. Are there many of the big Panther cars over there? For some reason, these big American-brand cars don't generally do well in export markets. Nice to see that at least someone from overseas appreciates the virtues of these fine cars though.

There is a strong demand for these cars in Saudi Arabia.

One company in Mobile, Alabama, specialises in exporting used Grand Marquis, Crown Victorias and Lincoln Town Cars to Saudi Arabia.

I suspect that gas is so cheap over there that it is almost free, and these are simple-to-fix, spacious comfortable, reliable cars which most of us would really like to drive, if we were not forced to consider fuel economy.

Yes gas is cheap 1$/G, thanks Allah. Moreover, Saudis love big American cars and this is a fact.
