I have the Premium model which in other words is not lacking anything. Its well equipped and it performs well. The only problem I have is that the driver seat is tilted to the side. I took it the shop and they said that it was that I have the wrong adjustment in the power seat but I think is needs readjustment and the base platform. Great ride overall and excellent handling.
Good bang for the buck vehicle
2007 Mercury MarinerUSAF - Illinois08/21/2012
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.
