2008 MMH 70,200 miles. Intermittently I will have no A/c. I turn it off then on again and it works fine for that trip. It now will occur but I also will have no front or rear wipers. They have replaced the Hybrid cooling pump, actuators and blend doors. But this keeps recurring. Any ideas?? At 59,000 I had the red triangle and loss of power issue. That was repaired with ...

I purchased a 2007 Mercury Mariner Hybrid in November of 2008. Purchased used, it had 14,000 miles on it and it now has 50,000 miles. This car is GREAT! I did my research on the battery system before purchasing it and I would direct you to the articles on the Ford Escape Hybrid taxis used in San Francisco (Key words San Francisco Hybrid Taxis) look for the LA times article. Here's ... Read More

I, too, had to have the computer update done on my 2008 Mercury Mariner Hybrid. For the past couple of years I was buying gasoline from the local WaWa, because it was the cheapest I could find. However, my Mariner started to "diesel" or have "run-on" when supposedly the engine was to turn off in coming to a stop. So now I've switched to BP Invigorate gasoline; I hope that the ... Read More
The early bird may get the worm, but early buyers of either the new 2010 Ford Fusion or Mercury Milan Hybrids will get a good deal more -- $3,400 more to be exact -- in the form of a federal income tax credit. These new and super-efficient sedans qualify for the largest bit of tax relief ever offered on any hybrids purchased or put into service after December 31, 2005. Early ... Read More

The product plan just doesn't include new products for Mercury beyond about 2012 from everything I've seen. I'd guess we are relatively loyal Ford buyers, with several new FoMoCo products since graduating from college. More than 2/3s have been a Mercury. Our favorites include a 2002 Mercury Cougar still going strong at 96,000 miles, but with no clear replacement available from Ford. The newest one is a sleek 2008 Mercury Milan. ... Read More
I understand that the scarcity is due to lack of hybrid battery supplies. I got my 2008 MMH in March of 2007, when they first came out, so I lucked out.
Monday, February 11, 2008 TOM KRISHER / AP Auto Writer SAN FRANCISCO -- Ford Motor Co. executives won't guarantee that the Mercury brand will be around forever, but they told a group of dealers Sunday that new Mercury products are coming. Ford's leaders have said they expect the Lincoln luxury brand to command higher sales volume than Mercury in the future. But some dealers are wary about the company's plan for ... Read More
I didn't even know these cars existed, my wife took our 1999 Buick LeSabre to get milk, and she stopped in at the Ford dealer on the way. She is subject to sudden enthusiasms, and by 8:00 that evening we had traded off the Buck, a 1998 Chevy Silverado and a lien on about 7 years' future income, for a new vehicle that is about as ticklish as a VCR to ...

I have a 2008 Mercury Mariner hybrid, loaded, have not had any problems get good gas mileage 32 to 35 depending on hurry. Here is my problem it is winter here in michigan and my mileage went to crap. Even though the car will go on electric the engine stays idleing. Anyone know why, I think there may be some thermostat associated with the motor to keep it warm. any thoughts. ... Read More
I recently had to drive to Southfield, Michigan from Trevose, Pennsylvania, and back--a total of over 1200 miles. In my 2008 Mercury Mariner Atkinson-Hybrid I got 31 mpg going West and 32 mpg going East, the difference probably being due to the difference in wind direction. So I easily made my goal of 30 mpg or better!
Because there is no currently available SUV with a Hybrid-Diesel I purchased a 2008 Mercury Mariner Hybrid-Atkinson. The Atkinson cycle really is quite good--it has nearly complete expansion as opposed to the Otto cycle, which does not. On the 2008 EPA ratings, the 4WD Mariner (and its sibling Escape) is supposed to get 29 mpg city, 27 mpg highway, 28 mgp combined. Mine is not, of course, broken in yet, but ... Read More
Go and browse the internet for posts regarding the Ford Escape and Mercury Mariner hybrids. Weight class between the RXh/HLh and the Prius and a larger, higher HP Atkinson Cycle I4. Escape and Mariner owners cannot find a way, seemingly, to get decent FE, especially in the wintertime. As indicated by Ford's hybrid expereince Toyota simply had too many design constants in trying to upscale the Prius hybrid synergy design to ... Read More
A couple of years ago, Gary and I were discussing whether or not hybrids would "survive" and I was saying how many upcoming hybrids there were. He was somewhat doubtful. Here is the current list: * Ford Escape 2WD Hybrid Model Year 2008 * Mercury Mariner 2WD Hybrid Model Year 2008 * Ford Escape 4WD Hybrid Model Year 2008 * Mercury Mariner 4WD Hybrid Model year 2008 * Chevrolet Silverado 2WD ...

Yes, I believe you're right. There appears to be a problem connecting regenerative braking with the roll stability program. Ford has a patent in this area, but there seems to be a problem with implementing it. The Toyota Highlander Hybrid seems to have it working correctly, though. I understand that on January 26, Ford/Mercury began production of the 2008 Escape and Mariner.
"I took my first test-drive in a 2007 Mariner Hybrid yesterday. It was very nice. I particularly liked backing up under electric power only. The 2008 model will correct two major deficiencies in the previous models: lack of stability control and lack of a DVD navigation system. " I don't think that the 2008 hybrid model, gets the stability control.
Brent8: The 2008 Mercury Mariner Hybrid supposedly fixes most of the problems you listed. Let's hope, anyway. I'm in the metropolitan Philadelphia area, and Mercury says they will have a display of the new model at 30th Street Station on Decemeber 4.
According to the 2007 Mariner Hybrid catalog, the center console has real Sapele woodgrain. I took another test drive today in the 2007 Mariner Hybrid and looked at it. It looks like plastic to me, but I'm really not sure (maybe it's real wood preserved in plastic). On the whole, the interior of the Mariner is far better looking than that of any other compact SUV I've looked at.
Sorry transpower, I didn't notice that this thread refers to the 2008 Mariner. I just bought a 2007 Mariner Hybrid, and it does have the Sapele woodgrain in it. I have read conflicting reports about whether this is real laminated wood or simply plastic painted to look like wood, and I am wondering which it is. Thanks in advance for any info.
From the drivezen.com Web site, I gather that there is no woodgrain at all in the Hybrid model. It's all aluminum, satin, chrome, as far as I can tell. I took my first test-drive in a 2007 Mariner Hybrid yesterday. It was very nice. I particularly liked backing up under electric power only.

Does anyone know, i.e. not guessing, whether the Sapele woodgrain in the Hybrid is actual laminated wood or just plastic?
According to www.drivezen.com, the new 2008 Mercury Mariner will have a DVD navigation system and roll stability control. It's not clear whether the air conditioner will function OK with just the electric propulsion (according to Edmunds' reviewers of the Ford Escape Hybrid, they had to run the AC at max level, which then caused the gasoline engine to run). The specs look pretty good.
Wow, I haven't been on this forum for many months--it's sure gotten hot in the past few days. I'm very happy with my 2008 Mercury Mariner Hybrid 4WD, getting 26 to 32 mpg, depending on conditions. I estimate the payback (in comparison with a 2008 Mercury Mariner Premier 4WD) to be approximately 6 years. I usually keep my vehicles for 7 years, so it was a go for me. One point ... Read More
