2002 Mercury Mountaineer 2WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)

Review

We were won over by the styling and additional features of the Montaineer, most notably the standard third row seat for hauling around the relatives and little league team on occassion. The Mountaineer handles this task admirably, with suprisingly good legroom and comfort for the third row seat. The independent rear suspension provides a very comfortable ride, and the 5.0L V-8 is very peppy with good torque for trailer pulling. Very smooth riding and extra stable at highway speed. Quality has been excellent. Mileage of 17 to 20 Mpg could be a bit better, but overall the truck has provided a very enjoyable ownership experience.

Favorite Features

Standard seven passenger seating with easy operating fold down third seat. Smooth riding independent suspension. Automatic rear liftgate window for quick and easy cargo access. Mercury styling cues, external and internal.

Suggested Improvements

We live in Northern California, and take the vehicle up into the foothills and along the coast on Hwy 1 quite often. The automatic five speed seems to be a bit clunky at times when downshifting on these twisty roads.
