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

Review

I bought my Mountaineer new in 2002. It was a perfect vehicle for the first two years, then as with all Fords, started riding rougher and rougher as the years went on. I have a family of 6 and am 6'5" myself. All of us fit comfortably in the SUV. I have the V8 4.6 and get 14/18. I just filled up today on empty and it cost $82 to fill the 20 gal tank. I agree with the others that the transmission is a weakness. I have 111,000 miles after 5.5 years and just took out an extended warranty for $1,700, which covers all major powertrain items. To protect themselves, the insurance company has a 90 day/1,000 mile waiting period before you can make any claims

Favorite Features

Fit and finish, seat comfort, visibility, turning radius is awesome, feeling of security in snow with AWD, door access keypad.

Suggested Improvements

QC transmission, rear window seal (leaks going through car wash), rear wiper is sluggish, Multi-CD changer jams CD's often, Auto control with AC/heater gave out and requires manual adjustment to turn the fan off.
