I got this vehicle after driving a Mountaineer for 6 years.
The Mariner was a little disappointing-comparitvely speaking. I got a great deal on it however. Gas mileage is OK, comfort is OK, but the drive is noisey at best. And, while I did get the 'flex fuel' model, there is no flex fuel to be found in my area of the country - what is the point?
The price, sync, sun roof, and the sound system.
quieter ride, better gas mileage, heating control on stearing wheel.
