2002 Mercury Mountaineer AWD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
Looked for 2 years until we decided on the Mountaineer. Really liked it, took it on many long vacations, very comfortable to ride in and drive for hours on end. Now at 110,000 miles, it's all over. Trans is difficult to get back into park, wheel bearings shot, running boards cracked, back hatch cracked right down the middle. I can only afford to drive this thing when absolutely necessary. Went out and bought a $1500 beater to get around in. Ford does not stand behind their product. Too many complaints out there about bad transmissions and bad wheel bearings. Ford should recall and fix these continual problems before someone gets killed.
