Ford can't do any better

Vehicle: 2000 Mercury Mountaineer 4dr SUV

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.




The best i ever had

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.




Looks like new in 2004!

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!




Great suv - gas mileage

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.

Love this suv. Previously owned a stripped down Ford Explorer ... can't compare for comfort and reliability.




Remarkable suv

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.....
