Review of the 2001 Mercury Mountaineer

  • Ford Explorer's upscale twin is sorely in need of a redesign, which will come next year.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Powerful V6 and V8 engines, good selection of features, four-wheel-drive versatility.

  • Cons

    Few differences between Mountaineer and Ford Explorer, poor fuel economy with V8 engine.

  • What's New for 2001

    Not much changes for 2001, as Mercury's Explorer clone has a new child safety-seat tether anchor system. The rest of the vehicle is all…

Vehicle: 2001 Mercury Mountaineer AWD 4dr SUV (5.0L 8cyl 4A)

Purchased my first 97 5.0L AWD off the floor. Had no idea how great it was to be. Drove it daily mostly hwy until I donated with 334K. Only major issue ever was a transfer case at about 200K. Normal wear and tear like rotars, pads and a couple alternaters. Changed the oil every 6 or 7K! Found a second 2001 model with 50K in 2005. Still using it as daily with 304K! Ford fixed the transfer case problem after 1998 so no issues at all with this one. Rotars, front barings one alternator and thats it. Better half got tired of looking at it so today I went out to look at F150's. Came across a 2000 model Mountaineer with 102K like new. Pick it up from the dealer in 2 days. BEST in snow and towing 2.




Finally a winner

Vehicle: 2001 Mercury Mountaineer AWD 4dr SUV (5.0L 8cyl 4A)

I bought my 2001 Monterrey mountaineer 3- 4 years ago. Had 50,000 miles when bought as 2nd owner now has 83,000 and running strong. Love the pwr. sunroof, 5.0 v8 power, interior is great, looks good going by. Never had a problem,routine maintenance (oil,brakes,rotors) The AWD is great and handles Ohio snow's without a problem. Had a 2000 GMC Jimmy-lets see. 2 computer's, 4 alternators, 1 starter, electrical problems that would stall vehicle (once in Tennessee), transmission x2. Upgraded to this Mountaineer-no regrets at all.




Nice suv

Vehicle: 2001 Mercury Mountaineer AWD 4dr SUV (5.0L 8cyl 4A)

I purchased my 2001 Mountaineer with used with 91000 miles on it. This was a 1 owner vehicle and i have not had any real major problems with it. The only thing that i have had to do was replace the ball joints at 103000. This SUV is great in the Winter time and I like driving it. I am thinking about upgrading this to a 2004. i would recomend this SUV to anyone who is looking
