2006 Mercury Mariner Hybrid 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Its a Ford Escape with a Mercury label. I've done lots of city, highway and offroad driving with no major complaints. Its the size an SUV should be. Its interior styling is no-frills-American, even the luxury model is basically the entry level model with leather, seat heaters and a fancy radio. I'm not saying I don't like the vehicle, it is very practical and comfortable.

Best Features

For an SUV, the mileage ain't bad. With the rear seats down, storage space is plentiful. Leather seats are comfortable.

Worst Features

Though the sticker mileage states 33 city, 30 hwy, I have yet to break 30 in the city. Secondly, even with the most expensive audio system option, there is no MP3 player port (1/8") included. $33K price tag is outrageous.
