Owners will recieve a second notice when remedy parts become available. I believe it's a step up from the Ford Escape I was considering buying.
I think the Engine could be a little quicker when I accelerate but overall I absolutely love my car and constantly look for reasons to just go out and drive. Stalls and goes 60mph to 0 in 3 seconds. The radio and climate controls are also easy to use. The hybrid provides both plenty of pep and compact car fuel economy. I usually get 23-26 on freeway only. Surprisingly, the Hybrid holds nearly the same values as the V6 Premier models. Like its Milan sedan sibling, the 2011 Mercury Mariner crossover will be one of the final vehicles sold under its brand name.

Four adults can fit for longer trips, and the seats fold down for a remarkably tall, boxy cargo space. Safety scores for the Mariner crossover have been strong. It's tuned for fuel economy but delivers responsive downshifts when the driver needs acceleration. Both versions are equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission. I had a buyer order signed, calling frequently to pay full price, and even arranged a car transport company referred to me by the dealer.

The dealership services we received where poor and predatory. Agreed to pay full price in full. Other than that, I'm very happy with my purchase.
