Bought it with 71k on it. Ended up getting transmission rebuilt immediately before we even took possession of car. Had an OD spring fall into valve body, so dealership had transmission rebuilt for us. Love the way it handles and has lots of get up and go. Love the interior (leather). Lots of room for passengers. V6 has lots of get up and go. Only two things I don't really like about the car is small rearview mirror, causing limited viewing, and the steering wheel sits too low - doesn't tilt high enough and feels like I'm driving a go-cart because it's so low. Makes it hard to fell completely comfortable in the driver's seat. Other than that - LOVE MERCURY! LOVE MY MARINER! Insurance is EXTREMELY inexpensive on these too!
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.
The car has excellent comfort, power & gas milleage. I am averaging over 26 mpg. The V6 is very powerful & performs well. The leather seats are very comfortable. The controls except for the headlight switch are excellent. The headlight switch is in a area that my knee (I am long legged) has a tendency to hit it. My Ford Freestar Van was the same way. I would highly recomend this vehicle to anyone looking for smaller comfortable SUV.
