Excellent traction in winter snow storms, comfortable, plenty of power.
2011 Mercury MarinerBig Boy - Fairfield, Ohio10/12/2012
My wife wanted a different car in order to accommodate our grandchildren. After shopping around at several dealerships we stopped in Carmax and have not regretted that decision. We have been very pleased with the performance of the car. The performance of the car has been excellent. The interior is roomy and provides excellent storage space.
Mariner gets great gas mileage on average 24.5. Ride is comfortable but a little noisy from outside air. Plenty of interior room as long as you only are carrying 4. Plenty of cargo room for groceries but not good if you need to hall much more unless you fold down rear seat which is cumbersome. You have to take the head rests off to fold it down. I am a do it yourself er and can be inconvenient. Only mechanical problem has been a vibration in the accelerator pedal between 3 & 4 gear but is occasional. I noticed the same problem on a loaner car while in shop for problem. I figured it is just something I will have to get used to unless the transmission starts to slip.
