Pros: Hybrid system
Cons: Missing feature: adaptive cruise controlBest car I have owned. Decent performance for a mid-size passengar car. Sync coupled with complementary Sirius and nice Sony sound system should be in a car $10k more. My real-world gas mileage comparable to EPA estimates: I average 37-41 each tankful in mild California weather. Cold weather or extensive AC use lowers mileage about 3-5 MPG. Blind spot, cross traffic, and rear view beeper/cameras quickly become welcome luxuries.
Loving it at 5,000 miles and 4 months
Pros: Hybrid drive train
Cons: Wish it had adaptive cruise control and ability to save iPod music to the onboard 'jukebox'Fifth and best car I've owned in my life (26 years driving). I'm taken by how 'normal' it handles and feels. Got all the Mercury bells-and-whistles and despite my nervousness with being surrounded by all the electronics of the hybrid and Sync systems, everything works flawlessly. I consistenly get 37-41 MPG on each tank with a mixture of city and freeway driving in the congested San Francisco Bay Area.
its a huge an comfortable ride peiord.
Cons: hot a thingdrving on rough roads is a must have. interstates, it floats. your mother will ride with you in this.
Pros: Air Conditioning
Cons: Locking systemVery good vehicle
Cons: 0great car
Pros: V6 Premier and interior features
Cons: Location of info and reset buttons and ventilation controlsA bargain for the price. 2010 is much improved from the 2007 I owned for 3 years. I am Disappointed Ford has discontinued the Mercury line.
Cons: some trouble with dash lighting.Our base model Marquis has excellent comfort, acceleration, and appearance. It has consistently averaged 27-30 mpg at 65-70mph. The purchase price,due to a $6000 rebate, was lower than most supposedly lower priced vehicles. I would strongly recommend this car to a friend.
