2006 Mercury Mariner Premier 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
I've had my Mariner for 3 1/2 yrs and like it so far. This is my 1st SUV and now I can't go back to a car. Love the decor, style, sunroof and stereo system. Can't support more than 4 passengers comfortably but that's ok with me. Has loud road noise and brake problems (weird sounds), took to dealer and was told everything was fine. Backseat headrest are bad, blocks view. Needs improvement in lowering back seats. Oh, please include more on steering controls for convenience and handling. These are things I can live with but think should be addressed. Looking forward to my next Mariner fully loaded!!
Heated leather seats, moon & tune, side rail and color that is now discontinued (Gold Ash). Handles like a car and good gas milege on the highway.
Better lowering of the back seats, better positioning of the back seat headrest (blocks view),more controls on the steering wheel also outside temp included.
