This is a great little SUV and we get 29 MPG regularly around town in the summer and 27 MPG on the highway. We have got as high as 31 MPG before. The 4wd is great in the snow and will take you anywhere. I specifically bought a 2009 for the newer body style with upgraded power over the 2008 and an improved Navigation system. The Mercury Mariner is the same vehicle as a Ford Escape Hybrid. This SUV has every option except the power moon roof, below is a list: Intelligent 4WD System 16" 12-spoke machined-aluminum wheels Premium leather-trimmed, heated front bucket seats Heated body-color side view mirrors Hybrid Energy/Navigation/Audiophile System: Hybrid energy-flow graphic; fuel economy display; Audiophile Sound System with AM/FM stereo/CD/DVD, MP3 capability and 7 speakers; SYNC; hard drive-based, voice-activated Navigation System features SIRIUS Travel Link TM and about 10 gigabytes of digital storage for pictures and music Backup Camera Ambient Lighting Roof-rack side rails with satin-aluminum inserts and black crossbars Reverse Sensing System It has 69,904 miles and is still covered under the 100k miles / 8 year hybrid battery warranty. I just put Michelin X-Radial LT2 All Season tires that have a 70k mile tread-wear warranty on it from Costco in the end of October 2013 that cost $625. Regular scheduled service at the Ford dealership with no mechanical issues. Have receipts for all service. There is one scratch on the drivers side rear door and some rock chips on the front but no other physical damage (see pics). I am the third owner and have owned it for the last two years. Only reason I am selling is to buy a mini-van with more room for our family. A deposit of $500 via PayPal is required 24 hours after purchasing and payment in full before pickup. I can help assist with vehicle shipping or pickup from the Helena airport. The SUV is being stored in a garage.

A national law firm, Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP, has filed a proposed class action lawsuit whose presupposition is that MyFord Touch is defective. Specifically, the complaint states that the system - as well as the MyLincoln Touch and MyMercury Touch clones - often freeze, fail to respond to voice or touch commands and have issues connecting to mobile phones.
According to Hagens Berman managing partner Steve Berman, MyFord Touch is a theoretically "brilliant idea" that falls short in actual execution. Said Berman in a press release, "In reality, the system is fundamentally flawed, failing to reliably provide functionality, amounting to an inconvenience at best, and a serious safety issue at worst."
Other MFT issues enumerated within the 41-page filing include problems controlling the window defroster, rear-view camera and navigation system. The suit maintains that Ford is aware of the problem but has yet to submit a workable and acceptable solution to MFT customers. Scroll down if you'd like to read the full press release.
The Detroit News reports the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has officially closed its investigations into 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee, 2004-2005 Ford Freestar and Mercury Monterey models. The separate probes found no issues that pose safety concerns. NHTSA began investigating certain Grand Cherokee SUVs over complaints that power steering hoses could detach during operation, thereby increasing the risk of a vehicle fire. Of the 24 reports of failure, none alleged smoke or fire in the engine bay, and Chrysler has since modified the power steering cooler assembly to reduce the likelihood of the failure.
Meanwhile, certain Ford Freestar and Mercury Monterey vehicles garnered a government probe after receiving complaints that the models were equipped with faulty scissor jacks. The agency had received six reports of the jacks failing or causing injuries, including one incident that resulted in a fatality. But NHTSA says the jack failure rate is similar to those found in other vehicles. In those six cases, the government agency found the jacks were being used for something other than changing a tire, and investigators could not determine whether the emergency brake was set or the rear tires were properly chocked.
It's hard to think back now, but the same man overseeing the design of the 2013 Ford Fusion also presided over a rather lackluster period in Ford design, highlighted by vehicles like the Five Hundred and Freestyle. With the redesigned Fusion receiving high praise, J Mays tells Automotive News that he feels vindicated from criticisms suggesting he's not a daring enough designer.
When Mays took over as lead of design in 1997, he admits to having quite an ego ("My head would barely fit through the door some days. I've long since gotten over myself") and the workload to match. With the Blue Oval's portfolio full of premium brands like Aston Martin, Jaguar, Land Rover and Volvo at that point, along with the bread-and-butter Ford, Lincoln and Mercury models, Mays certainly had quite the challenge.
It was in the mid-2000s that Mays took over just the premium brands, and took on the new title of Chief Creative Officer. At the time, Mays endured some criticism for looking backwards to retro styling, rather than setting a new standard for American car design - criticism that Mays says he is free from with the all-new Fusion.
