Merc. Grd Marquis if the dictionary - Perfect car
November 1, 2018
I bought this car from friend 3 years ago. No idea what a great car. Over 20 mpg all the time from a 17 yrs old car. The V8 leaps when needed and still runs quiet and rides smooth. Great radio w/6 disc auto from trunk. Electronic dash nice. Huge trunk even with full size tire. Excellent vision all around outside. I'm 6' with plenty of room and adjustments. The seats could be used in the house they are so comfortable. Now, the one problem (I've found a lot of vehicles have) is the heater core. BAD locating by engineers; has to remove dash, costing over $800 labor. The core is aluminum and will burst if water freezes in it. Cheapened from copper to alum. STILL the Mercury/Fords are big, roomy, fast, and classy that I hope to keep for a long time!
