Owned my fwd 6cyl 2007 Mariner for 5 years now and couldn't be happier. Very low maintenance suv and she has started right up for me every day. Just replaced the original battery ($90) after 83k miles and the only other issue was the belt also needed to be replaced ($50)and the 2 rear turn signal bulbs!! The original continental tires were also changed at 50k because the highway noise was getting louder on them which annoyed me and the generals I picked for a replacement are a perfect combo for it. It really has all I need like good pick-up, decent gas mileage, good cargo space,etc.. My next vehicle will have a back up camera though which this does not have.I'm thinking of getting a newer one like '09 or '10 since they stopped making them. Best vehicle for the money that I've owned so far after 30 years of driving.

I decided I needed to move from a sports car to an SUV and have always been a Ford girl. While doing some research I happened upon the 4 wheel drive Mercury Mariner. I am so happy with it! It is comfortable, roomy, versatile and has a ton of options! I am so addicted to the SYNC system and love the fact that my family can watch movies while we're traveling. The engine with its 6 speed transmission has some great power and I'm never left behind in traffic. The fact that I can easily tow our hunting trailer and carry the kayak on the roof was a major selling feature. I am thrilled!
