2005 Mercury Mountaineer Convenience Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

The SUV has performed superb, the ride is smooth, transmission is swift, and overall a great investment. Rides and styles as a luxury SUV. The Family Incentives from Ford made this $12,700 investment a no brainer. The vehicles manuvers superb and is easy to park, great view from all angles. The cabin design and adjustable pedals allows for flexibilty and comfort for my wife to drive. Is fun to drive, can wait to take it on the road for a 600 - 700 mile drive. Compares to my BMW 325 on handling and comfort. The Mercury team got this one right on the money.


Best Features

The front seats and dash are very well designed and layout. Is funtional and relaxing to drive. Sufficient space fro driver and the adjustable pedals allows for any size driver to be comforble.


Worst Features

Incorporate the computer display in the center of dash, better insulation to keep air noise out, 2nd seat row need adjust slide to move seat back. Improve the material of the sun visor (looks and feels cheap)

Review

This Mountaineer is a small step down from the Luxury version that was my 2002 Mountaineer. I have been very pleased with my last one and this one has some trade off I can live with. I went to the Dealer looking to get a Mountaineer or an Explorer. Why would ANYONE buy an Explorer in which Leather seats and the 3rd row seat is an up charge??? Comparable Explorer with Leather and NO 3rd row seat is the same price. Better ride and styling that Explorer. I put 109,000 + on my 2002 with NO mechanical problems. Been through 2 accidents and still going strong at trade in. I look to continue the same with 2005.


Best Features

Ride is very comfortable. Gun it and the shifting is strong and nearly unfelt. Current Family pricing and 4K rebate made it a slam dunk.


Worst Features

Fuel Economy should have some attention but I didn't buy this to save on gas. What I would LOVE to see is a softer door edge where you rest your arm when the window is down. Steering wheel controls are fine on base package but I never liked the configuration on higher levels with stereo w/Fan-temp

2005 Mercury Mountaineer Convenience Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I absolutely love my Mountaineer. Beautiful, solid, great build quality. My V6 is very smooth and gets 23mpg on the highway. For the price, it is absolutely unbeatable!


Best Features

Styling, V6 power, fuel economy, interior.


Worst Features

A little more wind noise than I'd like, and rides more like a truck than a car, but otherwise wonderful!

Review

The Mountaineer looks like no other SUV. It's interior is richly appointed for the price. The ride could be smoother and the 4.0 liter smoother but overall it is a solidly made vehicle. I recommend the Mercury Mountaineer


Best Features

Unique grill and headlamps and third row seat


Worst Features

Better handling and smoother engine
