2002 Mercury Mountaineer AWD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
Wow, after reading so many terrible reviews about this suv, I must say I am a very fortunate owner then. (3rd owner to precise).
My 4.6 has well over 120,000 miles on it and I never had any transmission problems. (Yes, never).
The tranny shifts fast and has good gear ratios which enable this suv to have really quick acceleration. And all of the people that say this car has a terrible fuel economy probably drive too aggresively.
We took this car out for a very long highway trip and we averaged over 20mpg during the trip and our car had 4-5 people inside, full trunk of heavy bags, and our avg. speed was over 70mph. Mixed Mpg with mostly city driving ranges from low to high teens.
