Review of the 1998 Mercury Mountaineer

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Explorer-based Mercury Mountaineer is capable and practical. A variety of engine and drive types make it more versatile in 1998.

  • Cons

    Ford Explorer is more attractive to our eyes.

  • What's New for 1998

    The Mountaineer gets minor front and rear styling tweaks as it enters its second year of production. In addition, a new model, with full-time four-wheel drive, receives the SOHC V6 and five-speed automatic transmission that became available on the Explorer last year.

I bought mine when it

Vehicle: 1998 Mercury Mountaineer 4dr SUV 4WD

Our Mountaineer had been sitting on the dealer lot for 1 year when we bought it. For it's use it had a lot of miles on it, but 20K ain't to bad, we got it for $17K in early 2000. I personally hate the console because you have less room. The things I have loved about it, hauling ability, towing capacity and with the power chip the performance in town and on the highway. I can do a brake job on this truck 20 minutes per wheel. The repair costs have been pretty low, a intake gasket, brakes, even the tires were cheap when you look at the mileage. So stuff that sucks, radio display and compass display faded, driver door lock. and now the tranny is acting up with 150K mi... Paint has held up well

I bought this truck new in 1998. It just went 100,000 miles. No major problems. I just had it completely serviced as I plan on going another 100,000.

i bought this suv 1 year old with 10000 miles. i have used the extended 75k mile warranty only twice for minor problems,(power mirror, and leaking egr valve), both of which were repaired promptly by the dealer. I have enjoyed this vehicle, and will keep it indefinatly. i kept it in prime mechanical condition. oil changes every 3000 miles, etc. it still runs like new with very little loss of compression and power. i would rate this the best vehicle i've ever owned. new or used.
