Couple of years ago, I bought this Mercury Grand Marquis from a family member who could no longer use it. It's an '01, and I love driving the darned thing. Low mileage, comfortable good gas mileage, good power, and all the gee-gaws works.
Unfortunately, it's been exhibiting a weird problem lately. It won't hold the road, nor will it hold a line in a curve. It feels like it's "wandering", requiring constant steering inputs to stay in the lane. It's quite disconcerting. Fortunately, my second son is an ace auto mechanic. I had parked the car over the summer, using the pickup truck or several months to complete summer projects. Now, though, both my son and I have finished several of our individual projects, and it's time to see what's wrong with the front end of that Mercury.
Hopefully, in another couple of weeks, I can put the Merc back on the road. I really do like that old car. With proper maintenance, there's no reason that I can't drive it for another ten years. I like driving a car that doesn't have a car note.
