2002 Mercury Mountaineer AWD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
Loved the way it looks and drives. I have a V8 and pulled a camper with no problems. The AWD, 6CD Changer, Heated Seats, and Memory settings work well. The only problem is the transmission. Had it replaced after the warranty went out. Now it's slipping again. Supposedly, later models improved the transmission.
Comfort and Style. Looks good in Black. AWD - it does the thinking for you. I feel safe when driving. Plenty of room for sitting.
Improve Transmission. Metallic on steering wheel easily scratches. Make 2nd row seats fold easier to get to 3rd row. It takes two hands now.
