1998 Mercury Mountaineer 4dr SUV AWD

Review

Since buying the car, it has had 7 recalls. I don't drive it much. So the car is almost new. But things just keeps breaking. The radio, seat belt, fuel pump, and rear wipe. Who know what will go out next. Each time I bring in the car for a recall, the deal gives me a list of recommended maintenance. You need the engine oil, transmission, brake, power stearing fluid, etc., changed at least every 2 years. When fuel pump went out, they said I needed a tune up and the transmission tuned. The car had less then 20 miles. SAFETY recalls, and scammers at the dealership which the Ford Co, knows about because I wrote them and their response is (we can't control independnent dealers)

Favorite Features

All the bad features over shadows any good features. Buy at your own RISK!

Suggested Improvements

Fire all the engineers and quality assurance staff. Control your independent dealers. They are going to ruin the Ford band even faster.
