Crazy about a mercury

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Mercury Mountaineer Convenience Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)

My first Mercury and I love it. This vehicle is over the top in every way. All the options at the cost is just crazy. Gas mileage is great for an SUV, getting 21 around town and average 26- 27 on the highway. Love the leather and all the storage. Easy to carry a bunch of stuff and love it by myself. Had a problem with the back door split when shutting but was easily replaced and never a problem since. I cannot say enough about this car. It is luxury all the way.




Love-hate

Vehicle: 2004 Mercury Mountaineer Convenience Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)

I love the car's ride, features, looks, comfort and value. I have the V8 with poor gas mileage. 14mpg around town and 17mpg on the highway. Had transmission problems (solenoid) replace at 20,900mi under warranty. Rides fine now but searching the web revealed that this may reoccur on 2004 Ford Explorers and Mountaineer and costs approx $1000 to replace if not under warranty. Had I know about the transmission issue I would have bought another SUV.

The Mountaineer is a great vehicle for taking long leisurely trips. We usually get about 21 mpg on the highway and have gotten as good as 23. However, it is impractical as a day in/day out grocery getter. We get only 14.5 mpg around town with the V6. I believe the V8 would have done just as well. Other than that it is a great SUV. It's quiet, comfortable, and my wife loves it.




Premier mountaineer

Vehicle: 2004 Mercury Mountaineer Convenience Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)

There has been an inherent problem with the drive train in this vehicle. Also, the vehicle gets terrible gas mileage, nothing near what was posted on the sticker. It has good power with the V8 engine and the ride is more like a car than a truck.

Vehicle: 2004 Mercury Mountaineer Convenience Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)

comfortable and functional.. ride is firm but good.. Some wind noise over 60mph.. Controls are easy to read..Sound system is adaquate but not exceptional.. Fuel MPG is 17.5 city and 21Mph highway.. V-6 has enough power but can sound rough when pushed into high speed acceleration or passing gears..I am 6'4" and find the leg room good..Fit and finish are good with no major noted problems




Great mid-size

The Mountainteer is truly a well designed mid sized sport utility which brings a lot of value to a flooded market of "wanna-be's". It seems to have all the basics and more for interior finishes and performs suprisingly agile for such a beefy design/capacity. Very happy Owner!
