2006 Mercury Mariner Reviews
Has been a great car. Drive it every day for work. Done regular maintenance and have had no problems.
I bought this car and have loved every min of it. But, when it hit 70000 miles, the tranny went out. The dealership said it was due to not flushing the transmission. So, I suggest doing what they say and save yourself 5000. Thats what they charge. The flush is scheduled every 30000 miles.
VERY expensive to repair... when the transmission goes, its gone. Mechanic described it as looking like a grenade went off. $3300 all said and done. Even the alternator cost $400. Great little car in the snow, but the things just too expensive to repair...
