2002 Mercury Mountaineer AWD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
We bought our 2002 Mountaineer new based on our favorable experiences with other Ford vehicles (Bronco, Windstar). However, we have had a very different experience with the Mountaineer. So far we have had the car in for transmission work 13 different times. The transmission shudders when shifting into overdrive and slips noticeably. The Ford dealership we purchased the car from finally overhauled the transmission last week ($1400.00 to fix of which we paid 10%, the dealership paid 10% and Ford paid 80%). It's' still not fixed, so I am contacting dealership and Ford tomorrow in hopes of one day getting this resolved...HELP!!!
Leather seats are easy to clean and maintain appearance. Interior is well laid out.
