2007 Mercury Mariner Convenience 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl 4A)
This was my first time buying an SUV. Good gas mileage, fun to drive. I bought the black with the black/cream interior. Although it looks sharp, I imagine it will be tough to keep clean even without kids. Roomy, and easy to manuever.
Definitely like the 6 CD Player and moon roof (moon and tune package)which was offered free (or so they say) with purchase.
One extremely major improvement they can make is drip rail guards along the door panel. With light interior fabric on the doors it is constantly getting spotty with rain drips in heavier rains its worse. Back seat rarely comes out mostly because it is unwieldy to remove.
