Pics of my new Mariner.

Well, we did it. After nursing one of our cars along for the last couple years by fixing this, fixing that,... the normal little problems that crop up on older high mileage cars, I had enough and we decided on a new 2009 Mariner Premier! It's only been a day or so since we picked it up so no road trips or anything like that to tell about, but we at least have the Sync working and have figured out where everything is. :) I took a few quick snapshots during my lunch break today to get them up here for all of you to see.

It's color is Light Sage Metallic and we like how it takes on some of the colors of it's surroundings.

It's interior is Stone Leather and has the Moon & Tunes Elite package, heated seats, etc,...

Our first impression while driving it is that it's demeanor is pretty elegant for a small SUV and we love the ice blue dash lighting and the ambient lighting throughout.

It's competition for us was the RAV4 and the CRV, (both fine vehicles) but in the end neither of those vehicles appealed to us in the way the Mariner did and we're really happy with the choice. I'll be ordering some new floor mats, bike rack, and possibly some more accessories for it as time goes on.

Thanks for looking!

I'd love to drive an '09 with the 2.5L four and the six-speed auto (or the six-speed manual that Ford is now offering on base 2010 Fusions, if they'd put it in the Escape). We have the 2.3L/5-speed auto in our Fusion, and it's fine with that powertrain.
