A good reason to buy a Honda.

2002 Mercury Mountaineer AWD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
Review
We finally bought this after searching for a new car for 5 years.We bought this used and got a good deal, but could have gotten a better deal new (always check 1st).Anyway, after having the SUV for 2 years a few things have shown their ugly faces.1)the transmission is a lemon. Ford has recalled this transmission, but not on a mountaneer. 2)the fake metal trim is just cheap paint on tan plastic. 3)the 4L V6 needs to be trashed (just spent $500 to fix a CEL and do regualar maintance).4)don't buy for fuel economy.5)The interior parts are garbage. It will hold its own on the road, it's fun to drive for an SUV, and you cannot lose it in a parkinglot.
Favorite Features
The almost usable 3rd row seat. The information center in the dash.
Suggested Improvements
Use a better engine and transmission... ones that will last longer than 48k miles.Use better interior components. They are just so fake and break easily.Get dealers that will help fix your car instead of just saying there is nothing wrong.Did I mention that the transmission is sucky. 3rd one in 60k.
