Excellent vehicle for value and dependability
I purchased my 2008 Marina new off the lot in 2008. It currently has 256,223 miles without any need of major repairs. I had to change the ignition switch a year ago and just now began to have transmission issues. I love this vehicle and it has given me great service.
Bought a lemon
Bought this car @ 105,000 miles for $7500. Had to replace shocks, 4 tires, complete A/C system, brakes, tie rods; over $2000 more work had to be done to it to get it safe & reliable on the road.
Excellent value, in the Premier model.
The Mariner is great, performance, mpg, very little maintenance repairs and best of all manueverability. If I could insulate the cabin area to subdue the road noise I would not think of replacing it.
