2002 Mercury Mountaineer AWD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
My 2002 Mountaineer is fabulous. The 4 wheel independent suspension dramatically improved the ride. It drives, corners, and handles great. The V-8's fuel economy is not the greatest but I love the get-up-and-go it has when merging on freeways or trying to pass. The interior dash display is awesome at night. Coming from a snowy state I love the all-wheel-drive. No worrying about when to switch to 4-wheel drive, and it appears to work great. In 8 months of driving not a single concern.
