The Best Roadtrip Vehicle

1997 Mercury Mountaineer 4dr SUV AWD
Review
I have had very few issues with my mountaineer. It now has over 212k miles and the thing runs great. Great performance as you can fly up steep mountain grades and it never gets stuck, even when driving alongside kentucky country roads in thick mud just because you thought it would be fun. It is very comfortable and aside from little problems here and there it is very reliable. 5.0 awd is the only way to go. IT AINT BAD FOR A FORD! However it is still a ford.
Favorite Features
AWD, V8 in a true midsize suv, sunroof, 6 disc cd interior layout and space.
Suggested Improvements
mercury needs to re-make the new mountaineer over and back into this 1997 blue oval gem again. Can some engineer please make a frame and undercarriage that doesn't completely rot away to nothing after only 12 years on the road. If it wasn't for the corrosion this thing would be perfect.
