2009 Mercury Grand Marquis LS
Engine: 4.6 liter SOHC V8 (224 horsepower/275 ft. lbs. of torque)
Transmission: 4-speed automatic w/OD
Rear Wheel Drive
City/Highway MPG: 15/23
This is a full road test of my mom's 2009 Mercury Grand Marquis, to show how it performs in different situations, and to identify any problems that may exist. I would normally do this after having the car in the shop for repairs, but in this case I am driving the car around just to get a better idea of how it feels on the road.
I drove it for about 2 hours and came away very impressed. It is comfortable, refined, solid, and very agile. With only 224 horsepower, one would think that it's underpowered compared to its V6 competitors. It's not. The torquey V8 will pin you to your seat when gunned from a dead stop, and once you're up to speed, there is always plenty of power in reserve. The big V8 has a deep, burly muscle car sound when revved, but at low RPMs it is muted and unobtrusive in the cabin. The 4 speed automatic isn't much of a handicap with the V8's torque curve, although it prefers not to downshift into 1st or 2nd unless you mash the pedal to the floor. If you drive with a light foot, and keep RPMs below 2000, you can easily attain 20+ mpg in everyday driving situations. On the highway, the car is very efficient, due to its tall overdrive gear that keeps the RPMs low.
The four wheel ABS disc brakes provide adequate stopping power, with reasonably good pedal feel. Stopping distance is short in an emergency, although the front end dives toward the ground.
The Marquis handles very well for a big car, even though it is not equipped with the Handling Package (this option was discontinued around 2007). In hard cornering, body roll is minimal and the Michelin tires provide plenty of grip. The rack and pinion steering setup leaves feel somewhat numb, but it's also pleasantly light and very accurate (especially on the highway). Mercury obviously wanted to leave some "slop" in the steering, so the old folks won't think they're driving a Ferrari :) If you must throw the car around, it is safe and predictable, and can be quite fun for a boat.
Comfort is where the car really shines. The ride is very smooth, and gives you the feeling of "floating" over bumps. This is great on the highway, where little road imperfections are ironed out, but not so good on bumpy back roads. If you hit potholes or man hole covers, the car pogos up and down a couple times before settling. I enjoy this type of ride, but many people do not. Inside, the car is very quiet, and road noise is minimal. The leather bench seats are supremely comfortable and roomy, even after a couple of hours.
Overall I am really pleased with how the car drives, and it just happens to be a car I would consider buying used.

Classic Youngtimer http://www.1ownercarguy.com This is a very cool car.
Usually I like cars with really low miles but this car is sol cool because
it has 312,000 original miles on it and runs like a newer car. This is only
a 1 Owner Car and yes the miles are actual. The previous owner drove the
car back and fourth from Canada to California. You would never guess the
miles by looking at the car. The factory baby blue paint is in great shape
and has a very nice shine to it. The factory white vogue top looks great on
the car and is in about as good of shape as you will find. The body is
straight as can be and the paint is original. It has the 6.6L 400 engine
that fires right up and runs great. It has been rebuilt along with many
other things on the car. I talked to the mechanics that worked on the car
and they remembered the guy and how good he took care of his car and really
liked it. You would have to really like a car to put that many miles on it.
The car feels and handles like a newer car and just floats down the road.
The interior is in mint condition along with the rest of the car. Only the
drivers seat shows minimal wear. It looks like he was the only one that
made the trips because none of the other seats look like they hardly ever
got sat in. Everything about this car is just clean as can be. You won't
find another car like this.

This one pack Ford's old 4.6L SOHC V8 making only 224 HP which is pumped to

Pretty much the most old school sedan that you can get & they are one of
the toughest full-size sedans that you can get. But don't expect
sophisticated handling, top notch interior quality or brisk acceleration.

2000 Mercury Grand Marquis GS 4.6 V8 55xxx Miles
I thought I'd show you the new daily driver that we picked up to replace
the Cougar. I'm still going to repair the Cougar, but I didn't want to
count on it as daily transportation. This 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis is in
really excellent shape for it's age. It's powered by the 4.6 SOHC V8 and
only has about 55xxx actual miles. I know it's not the most interesting car
in the world, but it should be a comfortable and reliable one. Thanks for
watching and commenting, I appreciate it!

1997 Mercury Grand Marquis with 5-speed Manual Transmission, First Drive
A couple months ago, my friend Rob and I picked up a 1997 Mercury Grand
Marquis with 66k miles for $350. It had a major coolant leak and had been
neglected for a while, sitting in a cul de sac and covered in grime. We
COULD have just fixed it and sold it and turned a quick profit of a grand
or so but we did what any right-minded hooligan would do... we threw a
5-speed in it!
On the first test drive we hit the fuel cut off when the speedo hit 100 MPH
but we were only going about 30-40 due to the difference in speed sensors.
On this second test drive (but the first one where we could wind the car
out) the speed sensor was disconnected.
The 5 speed Grand Marquis Project: Stock 4.6 liter v8, TR3650-5 speed from
a 2006 Mustang GT, Fidanza
alum flywheel, 05 v6 Mustang Driveshaft with an extra 7
inches TIG welded into it, fabbed hydraulic clutch, dual Flowmaster Exhaust.
A brake pedal from a Crown Victoria and this car's brake pedal were
modified to fit next to each other and offer a natural driving position. We
installed a generic master cylinder (attached with a bracket to the brake
master) and a clutch line along the intake on the driver's side of the
engine down the wiring loom on the passenger's side in order to plumb the
slave cylinder and everything looks pretty much stock from under the hood!
The transmission tunnel had to be cut quite a bit in order to fit the
linkages and levers from the newer transmission and they intrude into the
passenger compartment. We're going to put some sound deadening down and
secure it with the rear floor air blower ducting that has been modified to
fit over the entire assembly. In the end, the carpet should install like it
was from the factory with a small hole cut for the shifter and a small boot
secured to the carpet.
With the stock 2.73 open differential this car is quite slow. That will be
rectified in the next couple of weeks when we find a 3.55 LSD and drop it
in. We'll also be getting rid of the pesky automatic shifter and button up
a few issues with sensors and interior components after it's running and
driving reliably. Oh yeah, the A/C blows cold also!
My 1990 Mercury Grand Marquis LS
***UPDATE*** A new video, Part II is now available! Please go see it
A quick and silent tour and test drive of my recently purchased 1990
Mercury Grand Marquis LS. I'm lucky to find this car in mint condition. All
original parts except for battery. Even the tires are original. Previous
owner had multiple cars, only used the Grand Marquis for special occasions.
Needless to say it drives like a dream.
Please excuse my poor filming skills as this camera does not autofocus. So
the road is kinda blurry. Enjoy!
