I have driven a 2001 Ford Escape and never had a problem with it after 105,000 miles. So I decided to go with the Mecury upscale version. I'm very glad I did. I have the top of the line Premier model. This is a more comfortable ride then the Escape. You don't feel the road as much and I'm sure with a new set of Michelin's instead of the standard Continetals, it would be even better. The interior is roomy and laid out nicely. Lots of cargo room and does not have a trucky feel in it's handling like the larger SUVs. I hope to have this one over a 100,000 miles also. Love the styling too. The 2005 has gotten above average dependability from a consumers magazine.
Great reliable car
2009 Mercury Grand MarquisBill Ott - Bonita Springs, FL06/02/2016
I owned a 2002 Grand Marquis for ten years, and it was the most dependable vehicle I've ever owned. I personally drove the 02 for 135k miles. It was getting a little tired so I purchased the 09 in Jan. 2016. This, too is a great looking, great driving vehicle. Unfortunately this vehicle is no longer in production or I would definetly get another one.
Very Good Value!
2010 Mercury Grand MarquisChuck - El Toro, CA03/01/2015
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
