The composite (plastic) intake manifold may crack near the thermostat housing and cause a coolant leak. Ford released an updated manifold that was reinforced to prevent a recurrence. No recall was issued for this problem but Ford did extend the warranty to seven years on some models from the date of purchase.

2007 Mercury Grand Marquis Problems
A spring in the seat belt buckle may wear or fail, causing the airbag light on the instrument panel to illuminate. Failed buckles will require replacement.
The engine may overheat at idle when the AC is on. A new, upgraded fan motor and resistor may be required to correct this concern.
Transmission problems are common in this model, often as a result of a failed front pump. The pump loses its ability to create hydraulic pressure, which an automatic transmission needs to function. A sign of front pump failure can be a whine type noise.

RepairPal Expert Overview:
The windshield may not be properly installed, which may cause wind noise, squeaks/rattles, and/or water leaks. If the windshield comes loose in a crash, vehicle occupants may be less protected. Dealers will replace the windshield free of charge. The recall began November 22, 2006. The Ford recall number is 06C15.
RepairPal Expert Overview:
The intermediate shafts connect the steering column to the steering gear. Vehicles in areas where salt is used to de-ice the roads are being recalled because severe corrosion can damage the lower intermediate steering shaft. This can cause the upper intermediate shaft to collapse and separate at the lower steering column bearing. Separation will result in complete loss of steering ability. Dealers will replace the lower intermediate steering shaft and inspect the upper intermediate shaft and steering column lower bearing for damage, they will be repaired or replaced as necessary. If the steering column lower bearing has separated, a retainer clip will be installed.
Additionally, Vehicle owners located where salt is not used who have concerns regarding their steering will have a one-time option to have their vehicles inspected and, if necessary, repaired.

Mine is a piece of CRAP!
I love the the car, the interior, the seats (back supports on long trips) and the amount of trunk room in 2007 Mercury Grand Marquis. Love the rear wheel drive and the braking system lets you feel secure. The lighting, both interior and exterior is more than sufficient. Nice quiet V8 engine with plenty of passing power if needed. When we travel, we use the cruise control, average about 21-25 miles per gallon for a 500-700 trip. Would I buy another? Yes
