2002 Mercury Mountaineer 2WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
I found the Mountaineer to drive and handle better than the land cruiser
and seems to be finished off and built as well for 1/2 the cost. The ride
is better than my concorde lxi, very stable handling, and lots of bells
and whistles. controls are easy. I found the design to be a sophisticated
explorer and get lots of compliments from co workers on its look.
With the features and safty features that murcury has included its hard
to find competition in the same class. I am happy with the purchase.
Only defect was the CD player fade/bal buttons had a mind of their own
and the dealer swapped it out with out waiting.
memory seats, dual climate, approach lamps, steering controls for the air/radio
the message center is not easy to see through steering wheel, find a better location
seat controls would be nice at corner of seat. and the tilt wheel, chrysler
concorde has an much better lever.the maintaneer is hard to change
