1990 Mercury Grand Marquis Ls Sedan 4-door 5.0l on 2040-cars
Salem, Arkansas, United States
For Sale: 1990 Mercury Grand Marquis 4-door Sedan. I'm the second owner of this car. It was originally purchased new in Port Charolette, Florida by an elderly woman who moved to be close to her family in Arkansas. After she retired to a nursing home and was no longer able to drive, I purchased this Mercury Grand Marquis from her family. This is a real southern car with no real rust issues. You'll see one spot where the vinyl top meets the body shown in the photo. The vinyl top has quite a few hairline cracks in it, but is still solid. The interior is cloth with no real damage, no holes, and it comes from a non-smoking family. You'll see in one photo the rear window interior has started to come apart from age. Power front seats work. Cruise still works. All the lights work. The power windows are working, but kind of weak. All the glass is good, no cracks. Has rear window defroster that works. Air conditioner works. Heater works. Recent battery. Radio works and has working cassette player and power antenna. Has had recent brakes, water pump, starter, valve cover gaskets, spark plugs and wires, and it has the 5.8 fuel injected V-8 engine that doesn't smoke or use any oil between changes and runs excellent with good gas mileage for a car this size, and is rear-wheel drive. This car has a full length frame and real metal bumpers. This model came out with air shocks and has been converted to regular hydraulic shocks. Smooooth ride! Has 70 to 80 percent Goodyear made in USA tires size R215-75-15. I have owned this car for over seven years and drove it with confidence. It will make somebody a nice car or an easy restoration project. Mileage is an estimate. If you have zero feedback, contact me before you bid.
Look at pictures. Please ask any questions. They don't make them like this anymore.

Jill Wagner has officially given up her crown as the queen of Mercury. With the Ford middle child on its way to the scrap heap, Wagner no longer has any automotive hardware to promote. Given her varied talents, we wouldn't be surprised to see her pick up where she left off with another automaker.

And here you thought you'd never be upset about Mercury's passing.
Thanks for the tip, Gregg!
The Detroit News reports the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has officially closed its investigations into 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee, 2004-2005 Ford Freestar and Mercury Monterey models. The separate probes found no issues that pose safety concerns. NHTSA began investigating certain Grand Cherokee SUVs over complaints that power steering hoses could detach during operation, thereby increasing the risk of a vehicle fire. Of the 24 reports of failure, none alleged smoke or fire in the engine bay, and Chrysler has since modified the power steering cooler assembly to reduce the likelihood of the failure.

Meanwhile, certain Ford Freestar and Mercury Monterey vehicles garnered a government probe after receiving complaints that the models were equipped with faulty scissor jacks. The agency had received six reports of the jacks failing or causing injuries, including one incident that resulted in a fatality. But NHTSA says the jack failure rate is similar to those found in other vehicles. In those six cases, the government agency found the jacks were being used for something other than changing a tire, and investigators could not determine whether the emergency brake was set or the rear tires were properly chocked.
According to a Bloomberg report, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has upgraded an investigation into complaints of unintended acceleration lodged against Ford vehicles. The investigation began in June of 2010 when just three complaints had been received and it only concerned the Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan, but this was at a time when the phrase "unintended acceleration" made grown men go pale. With 49 additional complaints received since then, the investigation has been reclassified as an engineering analysis - the last phase before a recall - and it has been expanded to include the Lincoln MKZ, making for a total of "around 480,000" units affected between the three sedans from the 2008 to 2010 model years.
The ostensible cause is that floor mats are trapping the accelerator pedal, but according to a Ford statement at the time, the entrapment is due to owners placing the optional all-weather floor mats, or aftermarket floor mats, on top of the car's standard floor mats. NHTSA has backed up that assessment, pinning the blame on "unsecured or double stacked floor mats."
On the face of it, it would appear that NHTSA has upgraded the status not because of Ford's error, but owner error, and Ford has stated publicly that it is "disappointed" in NHTSA's move. On top of NHTSA still being skittish after that other unintended acceleration debacle, it could be seen to be taking its time investigating all of the variables: it's reported that Ford changed its accelerator pedal design in 2010, a "heel blocker" in the floorpan has been considered a potential culprit in how the floor mats could be trapping the pedal, some drivers have said the floor mats weren't anywhere near the pedal, and according to a report in the LA Times, in "a letter sent by Ford to NHTSA in August 2010, the automaker said it found three injuries and one fatality that 'may have resulted from the alleged defect.'"
