2004 Mercury Mountaineer SUV Premier AWD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Transmission went at 51K. Bearings, Rotors warped, Calipers froze. Now the rear makes noise and at 91K I need a transfer case because it leaks and makes steering difficult. Never again will I buy a Ford.


Suggested Improvements

Honesty. One can search the web and find thousands of Explorer and Mountaineer owners with the same transmission issues. But no recall?

Review

My parents bought this car brand new and gave it to me. They had no problems every, except that back hatch crack that is common, i get it and everything is wrong at 76,000. rain out of gas on I-80 recently because all of a sudden my gas gage doesnt work. my ABS light is always on and my cruise never works. my ac and heat do not work. back riper flew off, tranny is apparently going out, loud metal clinking, stereo bass and treble dont work, speaker goes in and out, leather had been cracked since day 1. i love this car cause i know what it was like brand new and have kept us safe but i offically hate it too

Review

Bought this for my wife with 24k miles now it is up to 58k miles. Sure there have been a few things wrong but hey we got a warranty. I love the pwr and the ride this thing has when I drive it. It gives you a commanding feel of the road. It has road noise between 40 and 50. Also the rear window hatch cracked, you see it on a lot of Explorers and Mountaineers.


Favorite Features

power, comfort, style


Suggested Improvements

gas,but it's a 4.6 V8 what do you expect, you'd get better in an Expedition.

2004 Mercury Mountaineer SUV Luxury Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Bought this SUV and within three months the battery died, this made passive alarm go off. After 3 DAYS and $300 the dealership finally made time to rekey it and get it started! 23 months later the tranny goes out with a minimum price of $2,400! Wish I would have saw these reviews sooner.In this economy who can afford to take this kinda loss? Yet after reading all these reviews, I can't afford to keep this thing without a government bailout. I'm going to take a loss and by me a Honda.


Favorite Features

programable drivers seat unlock codes for doors adjustable foot pedals


Suggested Improvements

Dealers should get you in 1st if passive alarm goes off. What good is this alarm system if only the dealer can dissarm it, and at their convenience! 3rg row seat needs more leg room. Need more room behind 3rd for storage
