Best New Car Ever

2006 Mercury Mountaineer Premier 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 6A)

Review

I have owned Mercedes, Bmw, Acura etc. This is the best vehicle I have bought. No problems .Extremely quiet. Magnificent transmission. 21 mpg at 70 mph.Loaded with features . American cars are back. Why pay more for a funny looking more expensive smaller import? Have you driven a ford lately? Do your self a favor.

our first suv
By Donald Sistrunk on 11/28/06 12:07 PM (PST)

Vehicle

2006 Mercury Mountaineer Convenience 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)

Review

We have had many new trucks and cars, but this is our first suv. Very pleased with the smooth ride and good handling. Since I'm used to driving a big truck, the gas mileage id not bad. the few bad points I have against it are the small seats that bit too high. It feels like my head is always touching the ceiling. also the door handle is too low to be comfortable. overall I am still pleased with my purchase of a mountaineer.

Review

Exceeds expectations in ride, quietness, performance, fuel economy & transmisssion shift quality. 15,000 miles, about 1500 off-road on very rough roads ... NO squeaks or rattles. A world-class SUV bargain.

Bought my '06 mountaineer after driving most all competetors, including mercedes, acura, and saab, and land rover. Mountaineer outperformed them all and had the largest cargo area, most comfort and inexpensive price.

Love to drive

2006 Mercury Mountaineer Premier 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 6A)

Review

This vehicle is a great step forward for the American car manufacturer. The drive is superb, confort and handling are outstanding. It's very easy to forget you are driving a "truck" as the drive feels like a luxury car. The V8 engine gives you very smooth power throughout all the six gears of the automatic transmission. The rear "power" 6th and 7th passenger seats are comfortable for an average size adult. My wife, 5'2", loves the adjustable foot pedal which allow her to drive at a safe distance from the steering wheel. The interior is very nicely appointed with a modern clean but yet luxurious look and feel. It all works, no rattles, no squeaks, no interior parts falling off, "great"

The 06 Mountaineer
By Wolfmann on 09/15/06 13:50 PM (PDT)

Vehicle

2006 Mercury Mountaineer Premier 4dr SUV AWD (4.6L 8cyl 6A)

Review

The vehicle I purchased lacked only one thing as far as my needs where concerned, daytime running lamps. Other than that the car is fun to drive, sure footed on wet pavement. Responsive 4.6L from the 4.0L in the '02 version. In upstate NY on RT 17 there's a hill 5 miles long and goes up about 2700 ft, no problem the '06 doesn't shift out of O/D to maintain 64 - 67 mph with cruise control on. I'm 6'-2" and driver and shotgun are very comfortable, 2nd row probably ok for 5'-9"'s , 3rd row kids only. The rear area HVAC is great for cooling down the car and holding it cool on hot days. The 6cd w/satelite radio has great sound. It's a car you get into n' say this is the way they should have done it.

Test Drive One and You'll Believe
By Chris in FLL on 07/31/06 16:57 PM (PDT)

Vehicle

2006 Mercury Mountaineer Premier 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 6A)

Review

The Mountaineer is much roomier and proves a quieter and smoother ride than the MDX. This vehicle has a strong structure and transmits NO noise, squeaks or rattles in the cabin. The power retracting running boards and the power 3rd row seats are a hoot. Having driven the Acura, the Mountaineer is clearly a much better deal and when fully equipped was still thousands less than the MDX after the rebates.

2006 Mercury Mountaineer Luxury 4dr SUV AWD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)

Review

I purhased this vehicle after having owned 2 Izusu Rodeos since 1999 and a Trooper for 7 years. None of the vehicles compare with the cost or quality of the Mountaineer. It is powerful, classy and beautiful; it is the best vehicle I have ever owned and consider my money well-spent.

Great SUV for a Ford Product
By CO Driver on 07/18/06 19:07 PM (PDT)

Vehicle

2006 Mercury Mountaineer Luxury 4dr SUV AWD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)

Review

The Mercury Mountaineer is an all around great SUV with a nice standard package as well as a great option list that will make the price shoot through the roof. The 4.0L V6 is a great motor offering 210 hp and 254 ft-lbs of torque at 5100 rpm and an average of 20 mpg. Living in Colorado I can really test the performance of a motor! At an average altitude of 5,280 ft and many passes that climb well over 12,000 ft, the 4.0L V6 had power to spare. The handling of the Mountaineer is better than other SUV's test driven. With the Stability Control system, it really helps the Mountaineer really stick to the road. With minimal body roll and tight steering, their really is no "wishy washy" feeling

Review

The ride is very comfortable. Steering is a dream to handle. All of the controls are placed for a safe drive without taking your eyes off the road.
