Ok for to and from but not a big city vehicle

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


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.

Best Features

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

Worst Features

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.
