2008 Mercury Mariner 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Review

I bought a brand new 2008 Mercury Mariner from Malloy Auto Mall in Woodbridge, VA. In 2009 the transmission starting skipping gears. Took it to the shop, it was fixed under warranty. 2010 took it back to the shop for the transmission again. Not covered by warranty. Cost over $800 to fix. Jump forward to 2011, took it back to the shop, for what you ask? The transmission again. This $2235 to fix it. Ford refuses to do anything about it. DO NOT BUY THIS VEHICLE. I wish I would have read other reviews before I purchased. I will never buy another for vehicle. Don't take my word. Read other reviews and see the same problem I have.

Suggested Improvements

Admit that there is a problem with the transmission. Recall the vehicle and fire who ever designed the transmission. Owners shouldn't have to take their brand new vehicles in for major repairs 3 years in a row.
