Love this SUV - Bad Gas Mileage!

2006 Mercury Mountaineer Luxury 4dr SUV AWD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
I bought this SUV used in Nov 2007 with about 18,000 miles for $17,900 and got an awesome prices. It is fully loaded and has the extra two seats in the back too. Have driven it now for 29 months through summer's & New England weather. It does shift a little rough at times and has gotten stuck in Park but there was a recall for that so dealership will fix that for free. Love the AWD and how you can lock in the 4WD - pretty easy to do once you figure out the buttons. Love the extra two seats in the way back and they fold up & down so easy! Love my heated seats too; wouldn't get one with out them. Not too pleased with the speaker sound, sounds tinny to me. But otherwise love this SUV.
Heated Seats; exterior looks, 3rd row seats; 4WD; pretty comfy; love all the room in the back for our dogs to ride back there or for grocery shopping etc.; saved electronic preset seat settings for 2; amount of space in the back
Gas Mileage is horrible expensive to drive a lot; sound system needs improvement; electronic seats sometimes won't move when car is started, dealer says has to do with #1 & #2 presets & what key you use to start it but if you turn off & back on it will work; a little rough shifting gears
