I went to my local Mercury dealer and wanted a new Mariner hybrid. I have leased a number of cars from them in the past. They told me that Ford is not leasing any Mariner hybrids, I would have to purchase it. And they are not offering any special financing for the Mariner hybrid. However, if I want to lease a new Grand Marquis or some other car that nobody wants, they will gladly give me a price break, a rebate, and a lease at a good rate.

I really want a hybrid for my next car, and tehy know I wion't accept any other type of car, but they say their hands are tied, Ford just won't lease that mariner. What is up with them???
