2011 Mercury Mariner SUV 4dr SUV (2.5L 4cyl 6A)


Review

Two months after purchasing my 2011 Mariner 4 cylinder the rear window exploded. Even though the dealer claimed ignorance to the issue I found many occurrences on the internet proving it was a known defect. The air conditioner quit working next. Took the dealer 3 attempts to fix it during the hottest period in Wisconsin in decades. Next a defective alternator pulley required 3 days at the dealer. Since the replacement of the pulley the air conditioner has quit working again. The warranty will expire very soon. Now I just want to get rid of the car. Had enough.

None


Suggested Improvements

I believe Ford used up all the left over parts to make the remaining no longer made Mariners that are on the road today.

2011 Mercury Mariner SUV 4dr SUV (2.5L 4cyl 6A)


Review

It was time to get a new vehicle, and the salesman said it was "zippy" for a 4 cylinder. It seemed ok when I took it for a test drive on surface streets, but after getting it on the highway, I realized it is not at all "zippy." It has no pick up and go, especially when you have anyone else in the car or anything heavy in the car. It would be great for an older couple who are just going to and from the store, etc., but living in a big city and merging on and off of the highway, this car really is a disappointment. The body style is a little out-dated but at least it doesn't look like a bug, like most newer SUVs do. It gets 24 miles/gallon. The digital fuel gage is rarely accurate.


Favorite Features

Decent fuel economy. Love the sunroof. Comfortable to drive. When tire pressure is low, it does notify you.


Suggested Improvements

Braking system needs improvements. Doors are difficult to open from the outside. If you are looking at this vehicle or a vehicle like it, make sure that it is a 6 cylinder! Really do your research on vehicles before you settle.

2011 Mercury Mariner SUV 4dr SUV (2.5L 4cyl 6A)


Review

4 Cylinder was very surprising and powerful. Very quiet on the highway and the 30+ mpg is a real treat. LOTS of hauling capacity. Overall a great little SUV that is very fun to drive and very easy on gas.


Favorite Features

High ride and view while driving


Suggested Improvements

Standard power driver's seat
