New Grand Marquis owner
Picked up a 2001 Grand Marquis with only 72,000 miles. Only one owner. Outside of a few nicks and scratches, looks great. Swapped the factory radio/cassette for a factory radio/cd unit. Going to have the transmission checked, every once in a while, reverse is a little picky. Going to get suspension checked, i think the shocks are still original.

My 2 big issues to tackle, the drivers power window starts ok then slows as it goes down, close to finishing, it speeds up. It gets worse in colder weather. The other is occasionally when driving, the car chugs for a second and the temp light lights briefly, then goes out and car runs normally.

I love the room in the trunk. So far, I'm liking the car.

Welcome, you probably should just do a full service on it. Plugs, boots, and all fluids and filters (trans, oil, brake fluid, power steering, coolant,and rear diff). A car with that low of mileage and age sat for long periods.

There is a grease that Ford made(other suppliers may be out there) to make the windows move more easily. It's also possible that the regulator is starting to fray and some cable gets caught up in some areas.
