Crazy 'bout a Mercury

This week the beloved VW wagon broke down for the last time. Today we traded it in (with a few tears from the boy) for this fine machine:It's a 2008 Mercury Mariner Hybrid. Union-made in the USA for the lunch-buckets, reduced fuel consumption and tailpipe emissions for the tree-huggers, it's the perfect ride for a couple of forty-something northwest Democrats.

My newspaper's uber-egotistical car reviewer wrote once that both his assistant and his wife LOVE that car, and that always stuck with me. Glad to hear a positive review from someone more down-to-earth, of course.

Whats the millage on that thing? I would be surprised if you are getting 23mpg

I would be surprised, too, since we're averaging 29+ mpg in the first week before we figure out the hypermiling tricks. Maybe you're thinking of the non-hybrid model.
