Whoever designed my Mountaineer should receive a Nobel prize. I bought it with 48K in 2003, and it now has 96K and the only trouble I've had is a dead battery. The radio display went out, and I dealt with it a while, but had it fixed for a high price. It drives just the way it did when I bought it almost four years ago. I've noticed my power locks acting up, but they aren't causing any bad problems. Highway fuel economy is okay, but city is ugly.

I have owned my Mountaineer for two years and NOT ONCE have I had a problem with it, other than the MACH radio screen going out, and that was quite minor. Mine is the Monterey edition (equivalent to Eddie Bauer edition of the Explorer). It has AMAZING acceleration, and gets decent gas mileage on the hwy, but not so much in the city. I plan to drive mine until the wheels fall off. I've had a Nissan coupe and a Chevy Blazer, and this is BY FAR the best of the best. Contact me if you want to know anything about it.

I can't tell you how much I have loved
this car! At first I was a bit
apprehensive about upgrading to an SUV
from a '93 Saturn SL. Once again I was
one of the few that was able to get a
2000 with a V6. Condsidering all
things the gas mileage is great! Only
problems I have is the radio display
has gone out (a common problm in Ford
products I hear) and the sensors for
the Transmission are causing it to miss
a little bit. Other than that I can't
tell you enough good things about it!

LOVE THIS SUV. CAN HAUL ANYTHING THAT
CAN FIT INSIDE. BACK SEAT COMFORT FOR
LONG TRIP IS SENSATIONAL WITH QUALITY
LEATHER AND CUSIONING. INTERIOR DASH
AND PANEL LAY OUT GREAT AND THE STEERING
WHEEL CONTROLS CONVENIENT AND WORK WELL.
COULD USE MORE CUP HOLDERS WHICH THEY
DID NOT ADD IN THE 2003 REFRESH. WE
LOOKED A MANY NEW SUV'S AND CAN'T FIND
ANYTHING WORTH SPENDING MORE MONEY ON.

I'm at the end of my second lease
w/mountaineer. My '98 and my '00 have
been great. I'm not a Ford fan and
these are the first Fords I've owned
out of about 16 vehicles in my life.
This is my last SUV (just don't need it)
so it's not that I am in any way
dissatisfied. If Ford made anything
remotely comparable to the 'vette' I
might consider it (on second thought,
probably not). You won't second think
you purchase of a Mt'eer tho.....
