200k miles easy!

1997 Mercury Mountaineer 4dr SUV AWD
This vehicle was passed onto me from my parents when I went back to school, and it has been the most reliable that I have ever owned. Comfortable leather seats, awesome stock stereo, moonroof, and some serious balls on the road. About to hit 200k miles with nothing but basic maintenance. Unfortunately a cross-country move made it angry and the transfer case is has gone bad, but it's still drivable, just getting a lot of clunking from the chain connecting the AWD. The back bumper rusted out from the MI winters but other than that this truck still runs like a champ.
Leather seats, moonroof, strangely awesome stock stereo, unbeatable in the snow.
Fuel economy is pretty bad, probably 16-20mpg depending on the circumstances.
