Lots of Bells and Whistles, But ...
Pros: Incredibly well-equipped vehicle ... small SUV bordering on the luxurious.
Cons: Gas mileage, noisy cabin.My '08 VOGA Edition (limited production model in the Premier series) looks fabulous, and for the most part is a very serviceable vehicle. A strong, well-performing V6, dual a/c, power seat, moonroof, leather (almost white), CD changer (which actually works!) are but a few amenities. The downside: gas mileage (overall just about 18 mpg), probably due to an antiquated 4 speed transmission (the newer models have a 6 speed); it's built on a truck platform, so the ride is a bit stiff; there always seems to be a rattle or creak (took 5 visits to find the most annoying one); not as quiet on the inside as previous SUV's I've owned. I've still got about half the warranty left, and will likely consider selling it just before it expires. Let's hope that when it becomes a Lincoln in '11, those negative issues will be addrssed.
I am an old lady and I feel real safe in this car.
Cons: Back seatsEasy to handle, looks great, rides nice, good price, safe, etc. Has almost everything I could want for a great price.
Pros: drivers door push buttions to lock & unlock car
Cons: too small door storage pocketsI prefer the rear wheel drive cars as they are able to pull trailers and etc. My front wheel drive van I had went thru five transmissions and one wheel gear box in three years. was family use only and only pulled light weight Colman popup camper. Had trans cooler and etc.
Cons: NoneRides very good. Getting 30 mpg with 4cyl. Have ingoy silver,beautiful color. Only had for a month, so far very happy.
Cons: Hood has rod to hold it upRides like siting in your living room. GR8 on gas. Looks out standing!!!!!!!!!!!
Pros: Quiet ride
Cons: NAJust under 50,000 miles and never had to have anything fixed on it. Just normal maintenance. 22 mpg overall and highway as much as 28 mpg. It's a sin they will no longer make Mercurys.
Love My Mercury
Cons: nothingI have owned 4 Mercury Grand Marquis LS's in the past yrs. & have enjoyed all of them. I drove Ford LTD's for several yrs. but tried the Mercury & like them better. It is equipped with everything I need. The one I own now is a Arizona Beige color with tan interior & I'm seeking another one with less miles & a newer model.
