At 33,000 miles, a new set of tires isn't a bad idea anyway. I recommend either Dunlops or Michelins. Having the alignment checked after the new tires are on is a good idea as well.

My wife and I just purchased a 2007 Mariner Premier and all is well so far. It's her car and she loves everything about it. Especially the audiophile 6CD/mp3 stereo and the heated leather seats. It's the dark red color.
I would have prefered a Honda CRV that got better mileage but hey, what can you do? Marriage is compromise.

I don't own a hybrid. but am considerng an 08 Escape/Mariner Hybrid and have been reading a lot about them. One feature they have is that the gas engine completely shuts off when that car is in "idle" and it uses 100% electric motor to start going. If that is true, you may not have a problem at all - it may just be a feature of Ford's 100% hybrid system. Just a thought.

I have a 2005 Mercury Mariner and it did not come with nerf bars. I am a very short female and since vehicle is so high I wanted them. I bought them and had them installed by Ocala Lincoln Mercery (who I bought vehicle from). I payed $530.00 for them. I cannot use them, it's makes it harder for me to get in and out. I am fixing to have them removed from the dealership and let them keep them (I would lose half my money), so if you are interested in them for $400, please let me know...

I have a 2005 Mariner 4WD V6 (25,000 miles), I think the tires are cupped also. Will the dealer replace the tires under warranty.
#482 of 514 Mariner Cupped Tires?
Jul 18, 2007 (10:19 am)
I bought 2005 Mercury Mariner Premier (28,000 mi) to months ago. The tire noise is really bugging me, has anyone experienced the same. It could be that the tires are cupped, does Ford warranty cover cupped tires.?

There is a lot of difference in road noise between brands, tread designs and wear patterns. And you can affect the road noise in the car by changing tires easily. Generally speaking - very cheap tires are noisiest.
