    What do you guys think about the Chevoret Caprice or the Mercury Grand Marquis? Which car is more reliable?

    make the mercury marauder an option too.

    if hes talking newer mercurys, the 4.6 is super reliable. cabs commonly put over 200k on them.

    That's what I'm thinking. If he's looking at anything from the 90's I'd go Chebby, but the 4.6 panthers seem pretty durable.

    Yes but i want to say they started putting the 4.6 in the CV around 92, but im not sure about the reliability of ones that old. I think if you went 99 and up you would be alright for a good amount of miles.

    if you're looking into something from the early to mid 90s get the caprice. maybe you can find one with a 350.

    '94 - '96 Caprice with the LT1 is a pretty decent car. The prices are getting high, but you can still find them.

    and that's why you buy a 9C1 caprice(police model, can be had for about3k). they have high miles though.
