2006 Mercury Mariner Premier 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
I recently purchased this vehicle, used from the local dealership, and found it to be a cute little vehicle. I liked the stylings, but after having a Ford Ranger XLT that had the Overdrive Off button flashing, and knowing the troubles that it could bring first hand, I was displeased. I was so hoping to get a vehicle made by Ford that did not have this button. It really serves no purpose in holding back downhill. I prefer to leave it in the normal position. I have heard some loud noises from the transmission. This makes me wonder why its clunking so hard. I do know it is fun to drive, but I still worry it could let me down someday in the future.
Sun Roof, Brightness of the Headlamps, seats and dash.. Love the way it handles, and the turning radius.
Make the transmission better,and the lighting inside better. Just a suggestion to Fords Better Ideas.
