2006 Mercury Mariner Premier 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
Since buying this vehicle, I have had fun driving it. The gas mileage has been a little low, (1 or 2 miles per gallon difference) compared to my previous vehicle, a 1999 Ford Taraus. I contirbute this to the winter weather, and the newness of the vehicle. Also there is a difference in driving a SUV vs a car, which I haven't quite mastered as of yet.
I have the message center, and couldn't be happier with it. The data provided is above average. The leather seats are a wonderful feature. The sound system is above average, and the 6 cd changer is great. The Rear cargo package, and the moon roof are also nice features.
Put Temp, and directional on rear view mirror, instead of on the dash. Currently there is no Temp. The heated seats, should have some sort of temp control, instead of 10 mins. before shut off. I would have liked an V8 vs the V6, but then my mileage probably wouldn't as good.
