- Fun to drive, easy to learn
- Seating a bit small
One lazy weekend I was watching TV and saw the one and the only commercial I�ve ever seen for the Mercury Mariner Hybrid. I thought to myself, �I�d drive that�. Being from a Ford Family and owning an Explorer, I always thought I�d graduate into an Expedition, but filling the tank on even a modest Ford Explorer Sport soon became painful in today�s market, so I set myself to go test drive one. That�s all it took, I was hooked. It�s so fun to drive and watch the electric motor kick in, watching the average fuel economy creep upwards, it soon becomes a game, while taming my wild driving habits. The interior is a bit smaller than I�m used to, however I�m a large person and fit just fine. Unlike the Toyota Prius, which saturates the PacNW roads, I�ve not seen another Mariner on the Hi-way so I�m feeling pretty unique. The price tag is a bit steep at 30K, but a new SUV will run you about that or more and there is some satisfaction in being part of the solution and not the problem, all-the-while not compromising room, 4x4 or style.
