1989 Mercury Grand Marquis LS 5.0L 302 from North America
When used properly, and not abused, this car is an excellent driver
I bought this car knowing it had several things wrong with it.
It had a bad exhaust system.
The engine was due for a rebuild.
The engine had been sorely abused before I purchased the car; I knew its previous owners.
The brakes were worn and needed replacing.
After I had the engine rebuilt and the brakes and exhaust replaced, this car has run like a dream.
The interior is gorgeous and looks like new.
The car rides like it's floating on air; very smooth and very easy handling.
The car is amazingly responsive for something so large.
Despite it's age and the inclement weather it has endured, the car's exterior is beautiful.
The next step is repairing the surface rust on the rear portions of the rockers.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
