2002 Mercury Mountaineer AWD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
AVOID THIS VEHICLE... I BOUGHT THIS VEHICLE WITH 137,000 MILES ON IT. I PUT IN NEW BATTERY NEW HUBS , NEW WHEEL BEARINGS ,HAD TO REPLACE ENTIRE CRUSE CONTROL SYSTEM AND AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM, AFTER PUTTING 4 NEW TIRES ON IT , ALTENATOR GOES AND I NEED A 2ND NEW BATTERY. WHILE DRIVE N DOWN ROAD DOOR AJAR LIGHT WOULD COME ON AND INTERIOR LIGHT WOULD FLICKER ON AND OFF DOOR AJAR LIGHT WOULD BEEP OVER AND OVER.. THE FRONT WHEEL BEARING I HAD REPLACED 4 MONTHS EARLIER STARTED TO GO AND THEN
ONE WEEK AFTER GETTING TIRES THE TRANSMISSION WENT..
RUN FAR FROM THIS VEHICLE DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY LIKE I DID.. JUNK
I too bought a 2002 with the v8 engine. It has 66,000 miles onit. Looks brand new but oh boy it is not. In 6 weeks of ownership I have put over $2,000.00 in it. It is a piece of junk. Bearings, Ac, steering, where will it end?
