2002 Mercury Mountaineer AWD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
To anyone that is looking to buy a Mercury Mountaineer. I never ever buy domestic cars, but needed a 7 seater so decided to go with the Mountaineer. 2 weeks into purchasing the car, the wheel bearing went out, so that was replaced by Ford at no charge. 2 years later the transmission went out on me. I had to fight it thru corp to get the dealership to fix it thru the warranty. It's been 2 years since I had that replaced, the transmission is starting to stall at 20-30 miles again, so another tranny problem comes. There should be a recall on transmission on these cars. If I have to replace 2 already in 4 years.
