Vehicle now at 71,000 mi. original owner

1998 Mercury Mountaineer 4dr SUV AWD
Original owner, 4 yrs. During this
time there was a
water leak at the drivers window above
the window, rear motor wiper (replaced
twice), radio component containing CD
player had to be replaced twice and
with an oxygen sensor replaced. Glad
I owned an extended warranty. This
vehicle now has 71,000 miles. Warranty
is up at 80,000.
Gas mileage has never been great. I am
sure it is because it is because it is
an 8 cyl, AWD.
It is very comfortable to drive in,
plenty of leg room in the back seat,
and trunk space.
Overall, this has been a good, sturdy,
dependable vehicle. First year took a

Vehicle locks when you start the engine,

I think Mercury has addressed this in
the past four years, by their new
