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.


Favorite Features

-Center consol info center. -V8 power. -Little fade in brakes. -Roominess in the front and rear seats. -Fold rear seats down and there is a plethora of room.


Suggested Improvements

-Better material in leather seats.

Review

If you want the reliability of an Explorer, but want to drive something a little differant and a little more upgraded, pick a Mountaineer. I have driven it in every kind of weather and it has performed great.

Review

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.


Favorite Features

Peppy V8, styling, generally reliable


Suggested Improvements

improve suspension...Seal cab better to prevent so much road and wind noise

GREAT IN RAIN OR SNOW, FEEL VERY SAFE DRIVING IT. GAS MILEAGE IS TERRIBLE. LIKE IT BETTER THAN DRIVING A CAR.


Favorite Features

THE ALL WHEEL DRIVE WHEN YOU HIT RAIN OR SNOW, IT DIGS IN WITHOUT SLIPPING AND SLIDING.
