Quality Problems with Mercury Mariner
1) I had to replace the 2 front brake rotors after only 19,000 miles. I asked the mechanic if they were under warranty and he said no, they just wore out from use. WHAT? I have not changed my driving style and this is my seven new vehicle (generally I drive SUVs). I have never had to replace a brake rotor before some 45 to 70 K miles.
2) I had a problem filling the gas tank, the gas noozle kept shutting off. The dealership took three days to replace a significant portion of my gas tank to fix the problem. Now my mechanic says that this is a very common problem with the 2006 Mariners.
3) The sunroof relay only intermitently works. The dealership replace the switch and a relay and the problem still persists. I have had rain come into the vehicle thanks to the fact I could not quickly close the sunroof. Now I just don't use it in fear this will happen again.
4) I parked the vehicle at an airport garage when I went on vacation with the family. When we returned the battery was dead. The lights were off and there was nothing in the accesory sockets. I took it to the dealer and they said there is a low current draw but they could not say where it is from. Now I won't take take the chance of leaving this vehicle for a week anywhere but in my garage.
Anyone else having these or similar issues with their Mariner?
