Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: The rumbling sound of the pipes.
Cons: The Mercury emblem, should have been the Marauder head.
Advice: You may want to look elsewhere if you have a lead foot. Speeding tickets can really cost you.It's awesome on straight aways and does well around the corners. This car is as fast as it is comfortable and when power is needed, it's there for the taking. The Marauder does this with class and style. Who said this car was for a man only?! A woman can also appreciate speed and performance and still have room for the husband/kids without cramping her style.
Pros: The interior layout and design
Cons: The stock subwoofer rattles
Advice: Check out www.mercurymarauder.netNice growl! Nice firm suspension for a large car. Massive Trunk.
Pros: Great overall package
Cons: Low end torque, speed limiter :o(
Advice: Best performance for the money.This is the most under appreciated American performance vehicle on the market. Yes, there could be more power and low end torque. Yes, there is more potential than the 117 mph electronic speed limiter allows. There is at least 160 mph in the engine. Aftermarket modifications can fix that. I guess they have to give the Police a fighting chance. As a retired officer, trust me, it runs away from it's cousin with emergency equipment. Overall this is one fine automobile, You have to appreciate American muscle to understand the car. I fear that the Marauder will go away soon due to low sales. The general population just don't understand. I now have three (3). In the hands of a trained driver, It's impressive. Oh Yes, It has surprised many german engineered image cars.
Pros: Firm suspension
Cons: The grille logo. The mercury god head would add class.
Advice: Check out incentives, including Manufacturer online, AARP, and loyal customer discounts.The Marauder stands out with responsive power and a great suspension. The car hugs the road on turns with ease. The hum on acceleration is impressive. The Marauder draws a lot of attention as well. The new silver color is much better suited for the Summer sun in Florida.
Cons: Inside mirror
Advice: Check it outGreat Car for performance and family
Pros: Looks & driveability.
Cons: No foot rest for left foot,I am used to one.Sable has one!!
Advice: drive it & NOT around the local 30 mph.streets, RUN it & see.The car seems to be a winner,sofar,ask me in 14 mos. from now & it may be a diff.story,I hope not cause I bought it after the test ride.Ithas plentyof power & guts & sounds super good with the twin pipes & 302 hp endine.Car is fully loaded,with what I wanted.
Pros: Engine - suspension
Cons: Seats need more lateral support
Advice: Don't hesistate - you won't regret the purchaseI love this car. I am 47 years old and it is a throw back to an early time of hemi heads and four barrel carbs but with all the best and latest technology packed in. It is a muscle car with a sports sedan suspension. I traded a four soon to be five year old Posrche Boxter for it. Call me crazy - I loved the Boxter for its heady German appeal -- style and mid enginer engineering. But my relationship to this car is more visceral. I enjoy salmon, but I really love a 1 and 1/2 inch thick New York strip steak even more. (By the way this car is as fast as the Boxter - 0-60 and close at top end.) This is the same kind of experience comparision. So if you are considering the jump to the Marauder - go for it and let's all meet at Pikes Peak next summer and raise a toast to Parnelli Jones.
