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


Review

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.


Best Features

Reliability..... AWD in snow the best. Never stuck unless it bottomed out! Tows more than it should.


Worst Features

Ford bring back the 5.0 and drivetrain

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


Review

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.


Best Features

Leather seats, steering controls, pwr. sunroof, v8 power, handling, the great looks inside/out and not cheap looking interior, very fun and great looking ride. Looks from others for sale that you will get 200,000 + miles from engine. onboard info center.


Worst Features

gas mileage-but it is a v8 SUV. It's not bad 18-22 mpg Highway

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


Review

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


Best Features

AWD, i like the amount of cargo room. Good for long trips


Worst Features

Fuel Economy, and quieter ride. A lot of road noise

Review

I just purchased my 2001 Mountaineer about 2 months ago, and I love it. So far I love the 5.0 V8 lots of power, love the leather seats, power moonroof, the way it handles, and just the overall vehicle. Mine has 55,000 miles on it and sure there will be plenty more fun miles. Tows my trailer and family just fine. Downfalls are the display on radio (easy fix) and the gas mileage, but you are driving an AWD SUV. Gets about 15 in town and 20-22 mpg highway, still better than my Jimmy (and it was a V6). I am very satisfied with this vehicle so far, will buy another one when time.


Best Features

What is not to like. Everything


Worst Features

Gas mileage would be a plus and better or more reliable radio (display).
