Used Mercury Grand Marquis GS in Dulles, VA for Sale
Reviews for Mercury Grand Marquis
Very Good Value!
I owned this specific car (6PJJ 743) and drove it on three round-trips to eastern Tennessee. It eats up the miles effortlessly and will cruise all day at 70 MPH with no strain and returns very good fuel economy considering its' size and the huge amount of belongings I carried. The after-market dual exhaust system that I added helps the fuel economy. It actually feels like a smaller car in city driving and maneuvers into parking spaces easily. Dollar for dollar, it is a very good value. The reason I sold this car is that I own another Grand Marquis and did not need this one
Yes, the Grand Marquis is antiquated. It is too big, too heavy, and lacks the latest gizmos and features. But it is because of this and in spite of this that I chose it. The v-8 has plenty of power and fuel economy is far better than any full sized SUV. The sedan seats 6. Not too many cars can boast that these days. And the ride? It is the perfect road trip car. Yes, My grandpa had this car. Heck, My great aunt STILL drives a Grand Marquis and has had several for the past 24 years. Even Daddy drove one. Why? they are comfortable reliable reasonably fast and big. They work!
Sad to see her go!!!
I've owned my Grande Marquis for 10 years. The only reason I'm considering trading her in is because I've found a 2006 model with 9,000 miles. If you maintain this vehicle it will stay out of the shop. I replaced the battery at year 5, the tires at year 4, and three spark plug coils. With regular oil changes we avoid the mechanic pretty well. Not a fan of high riding SUVs, but I love a big low ride!! This car is an ideal vehicle. I will be trading mine in at 87,000 but I'm positive she has another 87,000 in her.
