Customer Review Summary for Mercury Sport Utilities
2008 Mercury Mountaineer Premier
2008 Mercury MountaineerCandy & Jorge - San Antonio, TX12/25/2012
A great mid-size, three row family hauler. Quiet interior, smooth ride, strong v8 engine. Great value and comfort for a large family without the huge size of a full size counter part. The only two complaints about this suv is the placement of the parking brake release and no telescopic steering wheel adjustment. This is my 2nd vehicle with Carmax - once again a happy customer.
2005 Mercury MountaineerBarkel - Texas!10/15/2008
This is one solid and steady car. Road noise is minimal and you hardly feel any bumps. The interior is roomy and very comfortable. I have traveled across the country and back in one so I have first hand experience. MPG on mine is 15/18 with a V8. I suggest you go with the V* for the extra power but watch your speed, it can get away from you!
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.
Alloy wheels are a great option for those looking for sleek styling and performance. Alloy wheels can reduce the weight of your vehicle and look great while doing it. This article shares the benefits of alloy wheels and why this feature is worth a second look.
