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!
