2002 Mercury Mountaineer AWD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
I bought my Mountaineer as a program car and have been extremely happy with it. In the 4 1/2 years that I have owned it, my repair bills have been minimal. I have had brake work done twice, purchased tires one time, and purchased one battery. There are now 113,500 miles on the car and it is still going strong. Everyone in my family loves driving it. I am considering getting a new car in the future (just because I want a new car), and we will probably keep this vehicle for a spare. It just seems too good to give up. I have never had such good service out of a vehicle.
Back-up sensors, great sound system, ease of controls, maneuverability, and it is fun to drive
