Pros

Value Writeup

The 2008 Mercury Grand Marquis continues to feature a sturdy body-on-frame setup, a design that has proven itself for many years. It provides lots of comfortable passenger space, with room for six people, plus an enormous trunk.


Model Highlights

The Mercury Grand Marquis provides a durable and comfortable platform for roomy and smooth cruising. For the 2008 model, Mercury keeps the important aspects of the vehicle the same: large trunk, plenty of legroom, and a workhorse 224-horsepower 4.6L V8 engine.

The base Grand Marquis GS comes with a split bench seat up front, the driver side being power adjustable. Anti-lock brakes are standard equipment as is a tilt-adjustable steering wheel, power windows and locks, cruise control, and remote keyless entry.

The LS, starting at $2,890 more than the standard trim, includes traction control, 16-spoke aluminum wheels, fog lamps, and heated power mirrors. Interior add-ons include power leather seats and automatic climate control.

Optional equipment on the GS includes traction control, fog lamps, and an alarm system. The LS is more configurable than the GS Grand Marquis. The Palm Beach Edition package includes a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated power mirrors, cashmere leather seats and chrome wheels. A power moonroof is available as a $1,025 option. Heated front seats and a six-disc CD changer can be added as well.


Model News

The Grand Marquis has remained largely unchanged since 1992. For 2008, Mercury added a standard tire pressure monitoring system on the GS and LS. In addition, outside temperature display is now standard on the LS. New optional equipment for the GS includes a Comfort Appearance Package that includes leather trim seats, a power driver seat and 16-inch painted aluminum wheels. For 2008 the GS also has an optional Confidence Package with heated mirrors, fog lamps, and traction control. The LS now offers the Travel Package with CD and cassette player and conventional spare tire as optional.

Summary
Ford is recalling certain model year 2005-2011 Ford Crown Victoria (including Crown Victoria Police Interceptors), Mercury Grand Marquis, and Lincoln Town Car vehicles. The affected vehicles are currently registered or were originally sold in Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. Severe corrosion can seize the lower intermediate shaft which may cause the upper intermediate shaft to collapse and the steering column lower bearing to separate.

Consequence
If the lower bearing separates, the vehicle may experience a loss of steering, increasing the risk of a crash.

Ford will notify owners and dealers will replace the lower intermediate shaft, free of charge. The upper intermediate shaft and steering column lower bearing will be inspected to identify any damage that may have occurred as a result of lower intermediate shaft corrosion, and repaired or replaced as necessary. If the steering column lower bearing has separated, a retainer clip will be installed. The recall is expected to begin October 21, 2013. Owners may contact Ford at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's recall number is 13S08. Customers located in non-corrosion states who have concerns regarding their steering will have a onetime option to have their vehicles inspected and, if necessary, repaired.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
