2002 Mercury Mountaineer AWD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
Purchased with 48000 mi, after 3 years I have 126000 mi on the vehicle. The only repair needed to date has been an A/C hose at $500. This one has all the bells and whistles and they all work properly. It has plenty of power when needed, it's very comfortable driving. I tow a 3600 lb travel trailer using a weight dist hitch. The V6 won't take the mountain grades too fast but it does a very good job of towing. I'm amazed at the fuel mileage I get with this vehicle. 20-21 mpg is routine. Recently (gas prices) I've been driving 55 mph on the freeway and I get 24.9 mpg. Not just once, but consistently. Great mileage and all this luxury, and I can tow with it. What's not to love?
