2002 Mercury Mountaineer 2WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
I love this SUV's design and ride. I HATE THE TRANSMISSION! I've had it in the shop numerous times with transmission issues - bad sensors, replaced parts, etc etc. Now it shudders when shifting into overdrive and has started to shift hard when in first gear or going into reverse. Guess what? Just told by delearship that I need a new transmission! I've had 3 Fords/Mercurys over the years and 3 Fords/Mercurys with transmission problems. I won't be a buy of theirs again. FIX YOUR PROBLEM FORD!!!
