Model Highlights

The Mariner comes in either base trim, Premier or as a hybrid. The base engine is a Duratec 2.5L 4-cylinder, making 171 horsepower and 171 ft-lb of torque. Standard on the Premier and optional on the base trim is a Duratec 3.0L V6 engine that makes 240 horsepower and 223 ft-lb of torque. All trims are available in either front-wheel drive or 4-wheel drive. The base Mariner comes with a 5-speed manual or an optional 6-speed automatic transmission. The 6-speed is standard with the 3.0L V6 engine.

The Mariner Hybrid uses a 2.5-liter gasoline 4-cylinder Atkinson-cycle engine, and is combined with a 94-horsepower electric motor. The gas engine delivers 153 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 136 ft-lb of torque at 4,500 rpm. The engine also has a permanent magnet AC synchronous motor. Mileage is rated at 34 mpg in the city and 31 mpg highway.

Along with anti-lock brakes, Ford's AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control is standard on all Mariners. Seat-mounted front side air bags with head-protecting Safety Canopy side-curtain air bags, a tire pressure monitoring system, and a rear view camera system are all standard as well. Other safety equipment includes the optional Active Park Assist system, which uses sensors on the front and rear of the vehicle, and works in conjunction with Electric Power Assist Steering, to guide the vehicle into a parking space. SYNC, for help with traffic, directions and information, is also available.

MyKey, a programmable key-system exclusive to Ford, is available on all trims. It allows parents to program the vehicle so that when a minor is driving, top speeds are limited to 80 mph, an alarm rings at speeds of 45, 55 or 65 mph, the audio system goes mute until the safety belt is buckled, and volume can be limited to 44% of maximum volume. It can also activate a persistent Belt-Minder chime and a traction control system that limits tire spin and cannot be deactivated.

Standard equipment on the base Mariner includes an auxiliary input jack, 110-volt AC outlet, air conditioning, keyless entry and a 4-speaker CD sound system. The Premier adds machined-aluminum wheels, leather seats with Alcantara inserts, roof rack, trip computer, ambient interior lighting and an upgraded sound system with CD changer and Sirius satellite radio. The Hybrid Limited features goodies such as heated seats, a power moonroof and SecuriCode entry.


Model News

Last year, the Mercury Mariner received a wealth of safety, technological and comfort upgrades, but for 2011 the small SUV gets no substantial changes.


Value Writeup

The Mariner is a compact sport utility vehicle that is mechanically similar to the Ford Escape, but with different interior and exterior styling and equipment details. The Mariner's smaller size makes it a relatively fuel-efficient SUV. It also has unsurpassed crash ratings, earning the Mariner a 5-star government rating in all crash tests. The base front-wheel drive Mariner gets an estimated 22 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway.

Summary
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2010-2012 Ford Escape vehicles manufactured February 26, 2009, to April 29, 2012, and 2010-2011 Mercury Mariner vehicles manufactured February 25, 2009, to December 12, 2010. On vehicles with a 3.0L engine, the Fuel Delivery Module (FDM) may crack, causing a fuel leak.

Consequence
A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source increases the risk of a fire.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the FDM flange with one that has a redesigned fuel supply port, free of charge. Remedy parts are currently unavailable. Interim notices were mailed to owners on December 13, 2016. Owners will recieve a second notice when remedy parts become available. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 16S41.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Potential Number of Units Affected

Summary
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2008-2011 Ford Escape and Mercury Mariner vehicles manufactured August 18, 2006, through September 11, 2010. The affected vehicles have a steering torque sensor that may not be able to properly detect driver steering input. As a result, the system could remove the Electric Power Steering (EPS) assist.

Consequence
If power steering assist is lost, greater driver effort would be required to steer the vehicle at low speeds, increasing the risk of a crash.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will update the software for the power steering control module (PSCM) and the instrument cluster module, free of charge. If a vehicle shows a history of a loss of the torque sensor signal or fault codes relating to the PSCM when the vehicle is brought in for the recall remedy, the affected components will be replaced, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin by July 25, 2014. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-800-392-3673. Ford's number for this recall is 14S05.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
