Research on Struts for Mercury Mariner
The Mercury Mariner is an award winning vehicle, getting top marks for Affordable Compact SUV by U.S. News & World Report. It was first manufactured in 2005 and has gone through two generations of upgrades. Considered a luxury SUV, it is dependable and sturdy. That is probably why you see so many used Mercury Mariners for sale and also the reason why there are so many of them on the road.
Of course, because these vehicles last many years, degenerative problems eventually crop up. You may find yourself in need of new Mercury Mariner struts if have high miles. What was once a smooth ride may become anything but smooth if you have issues with your suspension system, like bad struts.
Warning: Danger Ahead
The struts attach to the chassis and are the very basis of your suspension. When your struts start to wear down, be prepared for a very bumpy ride indeed. We have all seen an older vehicle take a dive forward when it comes to an abrupt stop. It is almost as if the rear end heaves up and threatens to overtake the front end. The front end might even come close to hitting the pavement. It may not seem like a serious problem, until you consider what could happen.
Imagine that you are in your Mercury Mariner, and as usual you have two kids and the family dog as passengers. You may have noticed a slight swaying back and forth previously but you did not pay very much attention to it. After all, you are in a hurry! There are babysitters waiting, you are fighting congested traffic and you probably aren't noticing much except for your frazzled nerves and growling stomach. But who has time for lunch?
However, your attention is quickly diverted to the state of your suspension system if the driver in front of you decides to slam on his brakes. When you brake hard, your Mariner dives nose first into the pavement. This is a classic story of failing Mercury Mariner struts.
This story usually has an happy ending, as long as you are not on a busy highway. But what if you have to suddenly hit the brakes when you are traveling 55 miles per hour or more? Needless to say, this situation is not safe and it is why you should heed the warning signs and take care of Mercury Mariner strut problems as soon as you notice them.
Take the Plunge
Avoid problems by being proactive. Check for wear and tear on a regular basis and immediately address strut damage that can occur in an accident, or when you continue to drive over rough roads with struts that are already compromised. You will save money in the long run. On average, you will pay between $156 and $272 for new Mercury Mariner struts.
