2007 Mercury Mariner

    2007 Mercury Mariner Review Summaries

    What reviewers liked most about the Mercury Mariner

    • The Mariner is an SUV that drives much like a car. Strong and lightweight unibody construction, as well as a tuned four-wheel independent suspension, gives a supple ride while providing the proper control in emergency maneuvers.

      - Car and Driver
    • Gauges large and legible, controls handy and intuitive.

      - Consumer Guide
    • Two-tone suede and leather seating steals the show...and combined with contrasting stitching, the look is very handsome.

      - Edmunds.com
    • Fun to drive, the Mariner offers impressive road manners for a compact SUV. It drives much like a tautly suspended sedan, with little body roll and responsive steering.

      - Edmunds.com
    • The overall look is one of polish and refinement.

    What reviewers liked least about the Mercury Mariner

    • Automatic transmission generally smooth, but sometimes hesitates to downshift for passing.

      - Consumer Guide
    • Wind rush intrudes from around 60 mph, mostly from door mirrors.

      - Consumer Guide
    • Fuel economy was disappointing.

      - Consumer Reports
    • Unfortunately, Mercury stylists couldn't resist the urge to throw some wood grain trim in...and there's just a bit too much of it to seem convincing.

      - Edmunds.com
    • The Mariner is not designed to navigate truly rugged terrain off road.

    Mercury Mariner Comparisons

    • Compared with some of the other small trucks in its segment, the Mariner feels lively and sporty.

      - Car and Driver
    • Mariner delivers more of a luxury sedan-like ride with minimal bouncing or bumping than Escape, which, by comparison, is a little rougher around the edges and not as refined as the Mercury.

      - Cars.com
    • Knee and foot room above the class norm, helped by flat floor.

      - Consumer Guide
    • ...isn't as rugged as some other compact SUVs like the Nissan Xterra and Jeep Liberty.

      - Edmunds.com
    • Although long-term reliability is not likely to be as good as that of its Japanese competitors, the well-rounded Mariner is still one of the best compact SUVs available.
