Luxury at a great value - absolutely the best car!
New muffler needed at 100k.
I can't say enough good things about the Mercury Grand Marquis. I have only owned one other type of vehicle. Every 8 to 10 years I purchase another used Grand Marquis as the resale value is very low. I have been able to purchase a relatively new Grand Marquis (30K-40K miles) for under $3,500 every time I run one until it dies (only because I won't pay astronomical mechanic fees when I can get a "new" car for such a small amount). It also saves me a lot of money on insurance!
These are very reliable vehicles that are very comfortable for the whole family with more than enough cargo space in the enormous trunk. The leather interior is actually kid friendly as it does not stain and can be cleaned fairly easily. It is also nice to have a vehicle that is large enough on the road that you are not dwarfed or intimidated by all the SUV's. Pack up the family and really enjoy your next road trip in luxury!
The gas mileage is not unreasonable for the size of the vehicle and the power it has. It accelerates very well.
Thumbs up for the Grand Marquis!
