2006 Mercury MarinerDownsized from Landrover - Chicago03/31/2008
The Mariner has almost all the same great comfort features of my Landrover LR3. Leather trim, sunroof, heated seats, electric seats, etc. Few things I missed were arm rests while driving distances, stereo controls on the steering wheel, and heated seats in the second row. (If you haven't had stereo controls on the steering wheel then you won't even notice.) But hey, the Mercury was 1/3 of the price of my Landrover and looks great too. Fuel economy is 17mpg in the city and uses regular unleaded fuel. All in all a comfortable little SUV. Its not big cargo vehicle and it doesn't race around the city, but its fun and comfy to get passengers near and far.
I ENJOY DRIVING MY LITTLE SUV ( MERCURY MARINER ). I TOOK IT FOR A TEST RUN FROM FREDRICKSBURG VA. TO NEW YORK CITY . IT PERFORMED LIKE A CHAMP. SMOOTH ON THE HIGHWAY ,HAD PLENTY OF PICK UP AT THE RIGHT TIME. AND IF YOU EVER BEEN TO NEW YORK CITY, A LOT OF BRAKING, AND ACCELRATING. ALSO IT'S PRETTY GOOD ON GAS. I NAMED MY SUV ( THE LITTLE HUMPSTER ) , AKA ( THE ROAD WARRIOR ).
