Luxury at modest prices
Nothing has gone wrong with the car. I have only needed to do preventative maintenance (oil changes, etc) ; and some new tires because the old ones were the originals.
I don't know why this car is bashed so much in the last few years. I absolutely LOVE this car. Luxury at an affordable price, I managed to get this car for only $7,000, and the window sticker was $32,300 in 2003!
I have every option available for that year, air suspension, cloth roof, chrome, etc. It is ice metallic with chrome and a black roof, its gorgeous, I get many many compliments on it.
It's a spacious car with VERY comfortable seats, its very quiet and the ride is unbelievable! The MPG is great for such a big car, I pull about 26 on the highway and 18-20 in the city. It has plenty of power, although I think 275 HP would've really been great, but no big deal.
It's a shame that the Marquis has that "grandpa car" image. I'm 20 years old, and have always been attracted to big boats for cars, although my friends poke fun at me for having "an old persons car," haha, but I don't care. I plan on driving it for at least another 10 years.
One more point, with the posi-rear, it's fabulous in the snow, I put two snow tires on it and I live on steep hills... not one wheel slipped.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
