Nice Looking Nightmare
By Angela on
2002 Mercury Mountaineer AWD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
In looks and comfort, this is a great vehicle. Repairs have been plenty. Had all 4 wheel bearings replaced at 80k miles, then front differential, rear differential seals, driveshaft and transfer case all replaced at 90k miles. At 107k miles, it is back in the shop for new front differential and transfer case. This truck is a money pit and will be used in helping me to buy my new Toyota. It is comfortable though but that doesn't help me if I can't drive it anywhere.
