Pros

Great power from high rev V8.  Comfortable and quiet. Very solid and sporty handling for SUV.

Cons

Gas millage was around 10 - 12 mpg at best.  AWD was great on road but useless in the dirt.

Good Family Suv — This was a very nice driving SUV. Three rows of seats were comfortable on long trips. Options were high and the road feel was good. No real issues with this car either. Minor maintenance with only a couple of trim pieces being corrected other than brakes and tires at normal intervals. Early issue with torque converter was fixed and nothing but oil, gas and drive after that.

Smooth, Composed Ride And Respectable Handling — Offers good space for medium-size families, decent handling, tolerable ride quality and at least some semblance of off-road capability. Mercury has strengths as a people hauler, partly thanks to its fold-flat third-row seat that ranked among the roomiest of traditional midsize SUVs.

This Vehicle Has Overall Been A Great Vehicle For Our Family Of 5 — I liked the fact that if my childrens friends were going somewhere with us we had a third row seating and if we needing hauling spac then the third row seating lays down. Also there are air vents in the back for the third row seating

I Loved This Vechile But Now For Me I Need Something Smaller. — I really have no complants about my truck. This was the total package we have been to cheerleading practice, football games and my son took drivers training test in very dependable vechile. The heated seats were a plus in the winter and the third row was great when extra people or things needed to be taken from one place to another.

I Like It — Has great pick up, drives more like a truck than an SUV. 4WD. 5.0 L V8. Now belongs to brother. Was a graduation present when I graduated in 2008, but the gas mileage was killing me considering I work a half hour away.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
