Mountaineer

1999 Mercury Mountaineer 4dr SUV

Review

After looking at Explorers for a couple of weeks, we found that there were way too many options and interior and exterior colors. Finding a V8 with grey interior and good options was impossible. We found the Mountaineer to have all the upgrades we wanted and had more of a luxury feel. The head lights, tail lights, and grill set it apart from the Explorer. The V6 is powerful, but if you tow or just love power (like me), you have to get the 5.0 V8.

Pretty Standard?

Good value if you pay only blue book! The certified programs are a racket since you will inevidibly be back in the dealership for something little every other month. Things here and there add up when you are spending $100 deductible every visit. I've already had three recalls on mine...mostly minor. Had rear wiper motor, turn signal switch, exhaust sensor, fan blower motor replaced in first year. Overall, the v8 has great pick up for an SUV and it has lots of power. The styling is nicer than same platform explorer. Still rugged! LOUD,LOUD,LOUD! Interior noise is deafening.Handles roughly, very rigid!But it is an suv, not a mercedes.

This has been an outstanding vehicle. I have never bee nmuch of a Ford/Mercury fan but I will be buying another Mountaineer. Unfortunately this vehicle has been in several accidents, but It has saved the lives of my family due to it's sturdy construction. It is a bit of a gas hog but it's safety and reliability have made it worth the additional cost of fuel.

Great SUV

This has ben a bullet proof, reliable vehicle on all accounts. Perfect compromise of size, space, and fuel efficiency. Other than the Firestone tire debacle, the only service this vehicle has required was oil and filter changes.

Review

Have had this car for about 4 yrs. Haven't had any problems until the past month or so. Everything electrical is acting up. Current probs: front/back sprayer, back wipers, brights, back left blinker, back right brake light, left rear window all do not work. This seems odd that all of these probs would happen at once on a car that's not that old. Anyone else have these sort of problems?

Review

Overall excellent vehicle. I experienced a minor irritant with the top interior front door moldings. The passenger side clip broke a couple years ago, and I periodically have to re-secure it. The privacy screen objected when my dachshund climbed on it when it was deployed--but who would expect it not to? My husband got it to work again, but the retractor spring is weak.

Review

ever since i have had this vechile it has been in and out of the shop.touble rattling in the motor, radio gone out, abs gone out, willnot stay started in the morning when its cold. it is the worse vechicle i've ever purchased. no one in the whole town like the suv. they hate they purchased it. it looks good and have great features but the motor is awful. and thats what really count. i think the worse thing is when you put it in the shop they can't even fix the problem.
