2006 Mercury Mariner Premier 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
We've been happy with our Mercury Mariner Premier.
We bought it used in 08 with 9000 miles on it.
It has been very reliable! No maintenance or repair issues.
It's perfect to haul our two small children around.
The only complaint we ever had was how LOUD the stock Continental tires were.
We replaced them with General Grabber HTS tires and it significantly improved the ride quailty.
If you have a Mariner, Escape or Tribute, do yourself a favor and dump the stock Continitental Tires as soon as you can!
No shakes or rattles.
Better fuel economy?
However, didn't want a 4 cyl or a hybrid, so I can't really complain about the fuel economy!
