2002 Mercury Mountaineer AWD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
I just bought this truck in May of 2007 with less than 50k on it have 80k+ on it now and I have already had to replace the bearings and now the front differential. My mechanic says it is because the all time awd is not good on the highway vehicles are not made to be in 4 wheel at such high speeds. The transmission is now slipping. And I still owe $9000 on it. Do not buy this truck you will regret it. I bought myself a beater as it is much cheaper to fix than the problems with this truck meanwhile I own a 13,000 dollar paperweight!
Very convenient everything is right where you need it to be and when it works it does its job.
Fix these problems and take care of the loyal customers!
