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!

My dealership didn't have the one we wanted, but they let us drive another Mariner until ours was shipped from another dealer. We spent a few days driving a similar one to the one we got, different color/options though. It was nice to have!

Thanks for the comments, we're enjoying it! :beer:

I think a mariner with dual exhaust nice 20s or 22s and some grill and tint work can keep up with the big boys in the looks dept it already looks high end...sorry escape owners lol
Thanks, and I think I agree!

Side note: My wife had the Mariner out shopping yesterday with her friends. The one woman's butt only touches Mercedes and BMWs and she was really impressed by the little Mariner. I know she's not much of a car person so it's gotta be taken with a grain of salt, but it made my wife feel pretty darn good. haha.
I have a few ideas. yep. Any suggestions? :)
The Side Steps! easy to put on?
Thanks for the compliment ltlredscape. It's the svt they should have made as far as I'm concerned. biased of course.
