2003 Grand Marquis Owner Reviews (2)
Comfort and Power
I drive a 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis GS Ultimate and it's a better car than either of my two previous Lincoln Town Cars. I get about 20 mph in the summer with the AC running constantly (in Atlanta) and still the car runs smoothly and brakes efficiently. I travel in the winter usually with three other adults and the riders are as comfortable as I am. It's too bad this kind of car isn't popular enough to warrant it's being continued.
I bought my '03 out of an estate in '06 with just 4100 miles on it. It now has 37,000 and has done everything perfectly. Plenty of power, feels glued to the road, very quiet, comfortable and a recent trip from Maine to Connecticut produced 31mpg on 87 octane. Hit head on while stopped in traffic last summer, I drove it home with a couple thousand dollars worth of front end body damage and no injury. The other guy's car (a more expensive, very popular 4 door import) was picked up with a spatula and totaled. I'll take this full frame, rear wheel drive, V8 with leather seating over anything else on the road. It's like riding in my living room!
