My 1998 Mountaineer has been great and it still is after 108,000 miles. Great care has been taken of it and it still looks like new. I bought it with 26,000 miles and it has never let down even once. I put new Michelins on it and they made it ride like a dream. The best riding SUV that I have ever had or ridden in. the V-8 power is awesome with the 3.73 rear axle. I get 22 MPG on trips and about 16 around town, not bad considering.
overhead console with compass and outside temp, premium sound with rear factory sub, v-8 with towing package,
15 inch wheels came on this 1998--I love it anyway---would rather had 16 or 17 inch wheels
