2011 Mercury Mariner Premier 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 6A)
Okay, we were at the car sale so my husband could get a feel of what kind of car I was interested in and what features I wanted.
I wanted a small SUV that would fit in our garage that had two non-negotiable requirements.
The glass on the back-hatch had to open, and I needed map pockets on the back of the front seats.
I spotted the Mercury Mariner (complete with moon roof!) and it filled all of the requirements.
The ride is smooth, the interior is quiet and I find braking assertive. I like the bluetooth phone feature and all the bells and whistles.
Our car and truck are older, so everything is a marked upgade.
The price was excellent, too! Bought it right away!
Glass on rear hatch opens; remotely too. Map pockets on back of front seats.
Windows open and close even with car turned off. Bluetooth phone capability, running boards, moon roof. Universal garage door opener. Quiet interior, smooth ride, great pick-up, assertive breaking. Leather seats, power driver seat, lots of storage. Cheerful alert bell that turns off after a time. Snazzy appearance. Steering wheel controls.
I haven't found all of the features, yet.
Lot of luxury for the price
