Perfect smaller SUV, for my daughters second year of driving. Nicely equipped Premiere Edition. Fun to drive, great pick up for a smaller V-6 engine & the all wheel drive is an added plus.

Excellent Small Sport Utility Vehicle — I'm someone who has owned several sports cars so this SUV was a big shift for me. I feel like with the power of the V-6 and the additional cargo space available, it's been a happy medium between other 4 cylinder competitors and the larger "Trucks" that make up the bigger SUV classes.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: V-6 Power is nice in a small SUV and you can still get good Miles Per Gallon.  Comfortable for me and my family and good cargo space behind the second row. Sits higher for better visibility in traffic

Cons: Because it sits higher, the handling suffers slightly but it's competitive in the class.  Fuel economy is not as good as some of the newer economy cars on the market.

Mariner Premier — Like the all wheel drive. I have never slipped in winter at all! Very versatile. Roof rack worked out well for kayaking. Tow package pulled my 5 x 10 trailer. Leather was a blessing. Served me well in all my needs.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Lots of room, seats go down in back

Cons: It is not a truck

I Like It — Good leg room for a 6 foot person. Comfortable rear seats. Handles very good in all conditions. Like the heated seats on a frozen winter day. SAT radio is great with the front and rear speakers. Moon roof is fun in summer or nice days.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Comfy, great handling, good visibility

Cons: Noisy wheels

Wonderful And Comfortable To Drive. — This is mainly my wife's vehicle, so I don't drive it much. It is a very nice vehicle (it is a Premiere) and has almost all of the options available. It dropped the transmission at 2500 miles due to a recall, but it was under warranty and was replaced at no charge. It has been a great vehicle in the snow and continues to perform very well. Gas mileage has been decent, as well. Best observed was 27, worst has been about 12. Overall fuel economy has been 18.4.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Comfortable

Cons: None that I can think of...
