Be Prepared for a Rough Ride

2006 Mercury Mariner Premier 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
Bought this car used and was very impressed with the overall style of the the car from first sight. The car runs excellent, sound system meets standards as well. Not very impressed with where the seat warmer buttons are since the passenger seat automatically turns on when someone gets in and the loudness of the car is overwhelming. Takes ALL bumps big or small very hard. There seems to be no give in the suspension or shocks when riding over any thing that disrupts the smoothness in the asphalt. Does not handle water very well either. Likes to hydroplane even in the smallest amount of water. Not recommended for any type of off roading! Also very poor fuel mileage
Seat design, sound system, comfort
Better fuel mileage, less road noise, better suspension/shocks when driving in bumpy conditions.
