2002 Mercury Mountaineer AWD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
The car has been an excellent familty SUV. Very reliable and the V6 gets roughly 18 mpg overall. We currently have 65k miles and experienced our fist real problem - fuel pump. The exterier has been excellent and the AWD goes through any kind of snow/standing water.
Reliability AWD - Took us anywhere, anytime in all seasons of NJ
Mercury needs to make a hybrid version of this car - I will buy it immediately! Electronics - door sensors indicated doors open (when they were not) many times over our ownwership.
