2009 Mercury Mariner Hybrid SUV 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

I wanted to wait until I got to drive this in the snow to give it a full review - and now I have here in New England. I have been very happily surprised in nearly every aspect of this car, from its handling and braking, to its fuel economy, to its overall comfort - in all of them it has excelled. The Navigation and Sync systems are outstanding and fun to explore, with easy-to-use podcasts and music and hands-free phone all projected through speakers, as well as real time traffic re-routing. And it does just fine even in deep snow.


Favorite Features

Gas mileage, heated seats, leg room, Sync, overall size, handling and comfort.


Suggested Improvements

Brighter headlights, easier lowering of rear seats.

2009 Mercury Mariner Hybrid SUV 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

Had it about a month now; enjoying the mileage and the kick of trying to keep it on battery. Nice car for the price. A bit wallowy. Can't take curves at 60. Suspension needs some improvement. Brake pedal feels fine, don't notice any difference from my other cars.


Favorite Features

Sync and navi system; operable rear window; suspension soaks up bumps pretty good over awful city streets; plenty of power to merge into traffic; comfy seats;


Suggested Improvements

European-ize the gauge cluster; Lincoln-ize the interior; lose that crummy plastic wiper stalk; offer rain- sensing wipers; offer hid headlights; go upscale a bit; suspension needs further improvement, a bit wallowy on curves.

Review

I've owned my Mariner Hybrid for a little over two weeks, got 37mpg out of first tank, 34mpg with highway and city on second tank. Very impressed with this vehicle, love the Nav with Sync and Sirius. Mercury hit a home run with this one. Rides very nice, comfortable with loads of front leg room.


Favorite Features

Gas mileage and nav system


Suggested Improvements

Make it easier to run on battery, as soon as you put a little pressure on gas pedal it jumps to gas engine. It takes a soft touch.

Review

I got this vehicle a week ago, and I'm really enjoying it. I averaged 37mpg on the first tank of gas, mostly city but some highway travel. Still learning the hybrid and how to maximize mileage, but I'm having fun doing it. The Nav system with the Sync and Sirius is awesome, it does so much. Very tight, handles well and runs well. The small engine has some pep, alittle noisy when you punch it down, but it handles the hills of Pittsburgh with ease.


Favorite Features

Gas mileage and the navigation with Sync and Sirius. Ambient lighting is cool, although I'd never pay for it separately.


Suggested Improvements

Storage for the headrest or have the seats flip down without taking them off.

Review

We have had the car for 2 weeks, and love it. The nav system and Sync work great. Ride is smooth and very car like, plenty of power when you need it, and great economy we are averaging 33 mpg so far. The park assist is great, wish it offered an led proximity display, and a back up camera. Plenty of room in the back seat for bigger guys, and cargo room is descent.


Favorite Features

Nav system with Sync makes life easier when driving, just say what you want! Economy mode on the A/C lets you keep cool somewhat and run on electric power.


Suggested Improvements

Back up camera, throttle adjustments, very difficult to run in electric power only, and pressure on throttle and gas engine comes on. More storage in cabin. Glove box is embarrassingly small, and barely holds the owners manual.
