We like our Mariner
By Andrea on
2011 Mercury Mariner Premier 4dr SUV (2.5L 4cyl 6A)
Love the back up camera in the rear view mirror. Noticed in riding in the back seat-no grab bars, and no mechanical lock release. We bought this car less than a week ago, got the premier V6, leather seats, dual climate,rear view back up camera and moon roof. So far like everything. We have a 2005 Toyota Highlander, which interior-wise is a lot nicer, even without the leather seats. Highlander doesn't have the modern amenities. My husband thinks it feels more like a truck then SUV, I think it is because it sits up a bit higher, and the front is slightly longer. Thought we would try Mercury-My dad has always bought Fords, and we always had good luck with them lasting a long time!
Rear view back up camera, My 3 yr old daughter is loving the ambient lighting!
Since we just bought, the only thing I can think of is the grab bars in the back and the mechanical door lock release in back-looks like if you are in the back you have to wait for the person driving to release the locks or it does have a lock in the door that you can pull up.
