"Very dependable, goes great in all weather, even snow. Comfortable ride. Low maintenance, plenty of room. I can haul things. The seats fold down easily and quickly. Gas mileage is good for what you get. (I get 22 mpg usually). I bought it used and haven't had any problems in almost 3 years of owning it."

"I have owned this mercury for a couple of years and have had no issues with the vehicle other than a battery replacement last year. I have also kept up on oil changes and filter changes. I believe this vehicle has another fifty thousand miles on it before it becomes too costly to maintain."

"22 miles round trip so the bad mpg doesn't kill me too bad. I receently had a new trans. put in and the first set of replacement tires. I like the size for going to the beach and weekend trips. I bought it used is 2009 for 15k and is has almost all of the bells and whistles."

"Only reason I'm looking to trade and buy another car is because I have 100,00 miles on my current SUV and in a few years I plan to retire and don't want to have a car note, sooo.., I must purchase within the next year so when I retire I'll have a three year old car that's paid for not a 10 years old car that could possibly be in need of a lot of attention."

Looking good next to my DeSoto!

"I bought this car new and never looked back. In the nine years I've had it I replaced a set of tires, a battery, front brakes, and changed the transmission fluid. Other than routine oil changes it has always performed perfectly. It rides great since taking the Continental tires off (loud) and gets 29 real mpg's. I wish they still made this car."
