2002 Mercury Mountaineer 2WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
We bought this car in 2004. I loved it for the first two years or so. The it started falling apart. We have had to replace the transmission and it needs to be replaced again now. Other replacements, power window motor and switch pannel, window regulator, back glass, wheel barings, door hinges, cracked running boards, air compressor, power seat motor and various timing belts. I have just been advised the ABS is out and my rear end may or may not be going out and the doors no longer lock. Interior wise it's comfy. Some of the paint on the steering wheel and radio started peeling and flaking at about 50k. Basically this car is junk. We are trading in tomorrow on a Land Rover LR3 tomorrow
Keypad on door.
No room in the third row area. An extra 3 inches in cargo space with the third row up would make a major difference. Oh and making it NOT fall to pieces at 60k miles would be AWESOME
