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.
My M.M is much more than I thought it would be. The big rebates/incentives and good gas mileage (for an SUV) were huge motivators in my decision to purchase a M.M. I was surprisingly shocked at how much I like this SUV. My MPG gauge tells me I am getting 27, great, smooth ride, love the interior & the sun roof. An extra plus is the sync system which I have finally mastered.

This car was actually our number two choice. We had picked out a JGC to purchase but kept getting the run around from the Jeep dealership. All I can say is Thank Goodness they tried to hose us. We got a much better vehicle, with more options, and better overall quality, for a heck of a lot less money. We are sold on Ford products for life. Thank you Bob Howard Ford of Okc! I will never stray to GM or Chrysler again.
Love everything about! If I had to pick one feature to be my favorite it would have to be the SYNC system with Navigation. Do not know how we have gotten along without it!
I do not know what to improve, everything is perfect! How about this for an add on: A side sitting jump seat for a sixth passenger would be cool, but I am quirky like that. Love the car!

Being that dad worked for FORDS, I figured it was time to get rid of the Honda Odyssey and downsize into the Mariner. It is a great vehicle and coming from a minivan I was impressed, I don't feel like I am missing anything. The quality is outstanding, and I simply have no regrets!!
SYNC, sync, 911 Assist, Rear backup sensors, camera, the seats!!!
