1996 Grand Marquis
I purchased my Marquis used with 100,000 miles already on it and used it for visiting job sites and carrying stuff around including people. The 1996 edition was huge and would easily carry 6 people and 2 chop saws in the trunk. I called this car my energizer bunny car. I put it through the worst conditions and it still cleaned up nice to go to Church on Sunday. I drove it until it had 350,000 miles on it and the only reason I sold it is because I was moving 800 miles away and needed something a little more dependable. Biggest mistake I ever made. The car had virtually no major repairs, the driver door had to be adjusted, and the head gasket leaked a little water for 2 years, as long as I put a little extra antifreeze in it each month, no problems! As a single mom with 2 kids in college, this was the best investment I ever made for myself. I wish I still had it!
I've purchased a 2005 Mountaineer after running a 1996 Explorer to the ground. I've driven on many other vehicles from many trips and was surprised about how nice the Mountaineer drives. It's loaded with many neat features like sensor to warn what you're backing into and a 6 CD changer. The AWD was great in the blizzard of 2010. My Honda Minivan is a great family vehicle but the Mountaineer is what the family hops into when we want to go for a fun drive. The only gripe is the gas mileage - it is as bad as the 96 Explorer.
Not what I went to buy_but glad I did! MPG still improving!
