2006 Mercury Mariner Luxury 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I bought this car fresh out of college in 2006 and so far, no complaints. This is not the flashiest car on the road, but there are several times when I pat myself on the back for choosing this one. I disagree with any owner that criticizes engine power because for the size and amount of money, this thing has some punch to it. I am approaching 40,000 miles and I have had no mechanical issues what-so-ever. Overall, I rate this car very dependable, practical and a great every-day ride. My best friend even bought one because she liked mine.


Best Features

Numerical entry pad on the driver door is a life saver! Forget OnStar! Seats lay down easily to create great cargo area, great for dogs. Engine power is a plus. Sun roof is great. Automatic lights are also great, especially when pulling into parking garages, etc


Worst Features

Upgrade the sound system! Loose the old-school antenna. Seat warmer switches are in a bad location and stay on after the car is turned off. I have had irregular tire wear which causes the road noise to intensify significantly

Review

Great small suv and very good looking. Lots of wind noise on the highway. Metal seems thin on exterior. Windows make a clanging noise when closing them. Base of door sits on an outer ledge that just traps dirt.


Best Features

Nice interior features


Worst Features

Sound proofing, sound reduction when closing windows, thicker exterior metal

Review

I've had our Mariner for 5 months and it's okay. I'm tall and I have plenty of head and leg room. The exterior looks great, and it does good on poor road conditions. However, the back latch went out after only 3,000 miles...not impressive. The center console is structurally weak. If I push it from the side a little, it will deflect and creak. You must memorize the cruise control buttons if you use them at night because they are not lighted. Overall, it is a good looking car with poor quality.


Best Features

Good looking exterior and comfortable


Worst Features

The instrument cluster is too small, and the needles are too short and stubby. There is no light on the cruise control buttons. There is no light under the hood. The center console is very weak. Back latch went out only after 3,000 miles!!!

Review

This car is like a dream come true.. I love it... after couple of mini-vans and such a disappointment in Mazda Tribute this is the car I will lease again and again. Easy to drive, very strong engine, comfortable seats... Love the warming seats option... works miracle on my back pain.. has two power outlets... no more fight who will charge the phone first.. or you can use one for phone and other for computer. Huge cargo area...


Best Features

strong engine,easy handling, fog lights,warming side mirrors, warming seats, you look very good in it:)))


Worst Features

cap holders for back seats
