I'll start by saying I've owned one Toyota in my life and it was a joke/biggest scam ever perpetrated on this country. Having said that I just love big American cars! And I've had them all, over the years. Have been driving Ford and Chevy trucks for quite a while now, and in the midst of that series of vehicles, I had a Cadillac Deville. I decided to buy the Mercury because I wanted another car in the family. We already had a Tahoe for the wife and just didn't need another truck. So I started searching around looking for a certified Grand Marquis. I found one with 12,000 miles on it and purchased it for 16K a few months ago. Great deal to say the least!!! I put a Ford extended warranty on it and I am now covered bumper to bumper for 7 years and 100,000 miles and all with $0 co-pay at the dealer. The car is very comfortable, quiet, and reliable. And yeah, I get the comments about how it looks like a cop car, etc., but then I ask them about how realiable their foreign car is, and that's when the truth comes out...seems the foreign dealer repair shops are filled with cars needing to be repaired. The truest mark of a good vehicle is how many were produced and how many are still on the road...I know these were produced by the millions, and I know there's nothing out there to replace the cop cars/taxis, that have the reliability of these vehicles. So I drive around with my rear wheel drive, V8 powered, comfortable cruiser knowing that I'll always be able to get parts and reasonable repair costs when needed. Laugh all you want but I have a V8 and lots of power and terriffic mileage. And to add to that happiness my car's a 2010 and it's completely paid for!!

I recently purchased a 2010 Mercury Grand Marquis and am saddened to know that it is the last of the Grand Marquis models and, for that matter, the last of the Mercury cars. Having owned a Grand Marquis or its sister, the Ford Crown Victoria, for almost 20 years, I can vouch for their reliability. So can a good many of the law enforcement organizations in this country. Despite the negative reviews describing it as a dinosaur well past it's time, the car has had a large and loyal following and ownership albeit apparently not large enough for Ford to keep producing them. We hope that, with the Grand Marquis' demise, Ford will continue the production of the Crown Vic and allow the general public to buy them. (Currently the Crown Vic is sold only fleet law enforcement customers.)

Love That Grand Marquis

by from Wilmington DE. on January 23, 2012

One of the best cars I ever owned. Most car for the buck. Where can you buy a fully loaded 2010 model car including leather with less than 25000 miles in the $16000.00 price range. This is the second car I purchased. It is a shame Ford discontinued the Mercury line.

Mercury Grand Marquis

I am on the road constantly for business, driving about 40,000+ miles a year. I am pushing 60 years old and over weight so I want a car that is comfortable, smooth, and quite. I have owned and rented a number of cars over the years, and I find that the rear wheel drive cars seem to be a smoother and quieter ride than the front wheel drive. I have driven the Chevy Impala which seemed to be a nice car, but was not as smooth and the Grand Marquis. I drove a 2002 Cadillac Deville which was a nice car, good on fuel, but the 2005 Lincoln Town Car I purchased after it was smoother and more comfortable. It was not as good on fuel as the Cadillac. I got about 22 MPG in the summer and 20 MPG in the winter. I just purchased the Grand Marquis instead of a Lincoln or Town Car, because of price. My biggest complaint on the Grand Marquis is they have not changed the body style for a number of years, I have a 99 Grand Marquis that looked the same as my 2010. After driving a car for 4 years and having over 200,000 miles on them, there is not much trade in value, no matter which car you have. I hear they are discontinuing the Town Car and the Grand Marquis, I am sorry to hear this. I guess the market they are going after is not the OLD FAT MAN. After driving the Grand Marquis, I do miss the prestige you get driving a Cadillac or Lincoln over a Grand Marquis. In about 3 ½ years when the Grand Marquis hits over 200,000 miles, I will probably look for something like a Lincoln Town Car if they still make one. We have to pay for our vanity.

**MERCURY GRAND MARQUIS** This vehicle though quite large by today's standards is a MIRACLE CAR! It's stylish, spaciously comfortable, provides great performance and it's extremely reliable....and above all SAFE!! I'm extremely disappointed to see it discontinued. I truly feel it's a HUGE MISTAKE. For the price, it's an excellent vehicle in every respect. Recently, my family and I had an accident in one of these beauties. It was a front end collision and the vehicle was completely totaled. In fact, the impact was so severe that even the police officers were astonished that all of us had survived! I tell you that had we suffered the same accident in a different vehicle, I wouldn't be writing this review right now! Yes, it's a tank, but that's what saved our lives. Had we been in one of those tiny tots you increasingly see on the road today, we'd be dead!!!! We are all extremely sorry to see this car go. So all you Mercury owners out there...take care of your babies so they last and they'll take good care of you. Enjoy!

The 2010 Mercury Grande Marquis is an excellent vehicle. Good performance, handles well, very quiet on the road. It is a shame that it is being discontinued. It has been marketed as a senior citizens car. I am far from that and use it as my primary family vehile with two childrens booster seats in the back for my 5 and 3 year old. The vehicle is big, safe and extremly roomy. Superior trunk space. Best car of its class for the price. This is my second Grande M. -- My previous Grande M. was a 1998. It is still runnning well and is a superior vehicle. I bought this 2010 becuase I heard that it was being discontinued. One bad thing about the vehcile is its very poor design consideration for phone and external power jacks. It has only one!!!!! Why do you produce a vechicle in 2010 with only one power jack? If your using a GPS, phone and an IPOD you have to make a choice as to which you will prioritize regarding getting power due to there being only one power jack in the vehicle. That is a definite design flaw, and a constant source of irriattion. Additionally the cup holder and comfort station apparatus on the dash for cups and other normal console traveling equipment (sunglasses, phones, etc) is terrible. You have two small, very shallow, flip out cup holder devices that will not even hold a McDonalds large cup of coffee without it spilling or completely falling out of the holder.
