Review

Traded in a Jeep Grand Cherokee (6-cyl) for it. Going from 17 to 29 MPG is a great jump. The ride is comfortable in the city, but with bumpy roads some suspension noise is noticeable. The acceleration is good in the city but the powertrain is not as peppy on the highway; it takes some time to get to the speed you want, but is fine at cruising.

Best Hybrid SUV choice...I think

Review

If this SUV had more "Hybrid" competition, it would likely score lower w/me. But since there are few SUV "True Hybrids" out there, this one scores pretty well. Overall I really like it. It is fairly fun to drive, gets decent mileage (27 overall - great for a 4WD SUV), has surprising performance, has Nav, etc. There are downsides... It's ridiculously priced - 33K for an Escape w/a Hybrid drive! It should be in the 25-27K range when compared w/similar SUV's (assuming a 5K Hybrid markup). Buy it used like I did - paid 27k w/only 1,700 miles on it. Other than the Nav/Radio, inside it's a very plain (and dated) Ford product. CD changer under the seat is insane. And the seat cushions are too short.

Not perfect, but not bad

Its a Ford Escape with a Mercury label. I've done lots of city, highway and offroad driving with no major complaints. Its the size an SUV should be. Its interior styling is no-frills-American, even the luxury model is basically the entry level model with leather, seat heaters and a fancy radio. I'm not saying I don't like the vehicle, it is very practical and comfortable.

I owned a Lincoln Aviator before this.There is no comparison. This car is cheaply built!It has uncomfortable seats with paper thin leather, poor sound system, you can hear the outside air through the windows, it has a rough ride. Overall it is just a cheap, uncomfortable car that was definitely not worth 30-some thousand dollars!

This is my 5th SUV/truck, and it is great to drive, hard to believe it is made by Ford. The only problem...being too quiet driving in a parking lot. No one hears you coming.

Good to Go!

Review

I sold my Hummer H-3 and purchased the Mercury Hybrid with 4-wheel drive. Twice + the mileage and I can see the other cars. Not too good off-road but a lot quicker than you would think on the street. The old black lab finds it easier to hop into the back. No problems whatever, so far. Got 30+ MPG last fill-up. Nice truck. It seems good to go!

My Last Car

Review

At age 84 I have parked my Explorer and purchased the Mariner Hybrid. I will still use the Explorer for towing my trailers. I have now driven the Hybrid slightly over 1500 miles. It has the premium accessory package including the moon roof. Fuel economy checks closely with the published figures. Overall I am getting just over 30 mpg. So far, I very much like the vehicle, it handles well on all types of roadway, it has excellent visibility, and gives a fairly comfortable ride. Acceleration is adequate. Being rather tall, I appreciate the headroom and easy access.

Bad Choice for a Vehicle

Review

This vehicle is not well thought out at all. The Nav/radio does not work well, They (Ford) said is was Satellite capable..WRONG, LIE. Said it will play MP3's, WRONG, LIE. Nav system is awkward to use and not accurate, for a $3700. option in a TECHIE Vehicle they BLEW IT. Ford bought me an AFTERMARKET Satellite radio, VELCROED to the Dash and BAD FM sound. No auto headlamps, no outside temperature. No wonder american car makers are having problems.
