One great SUV
By Harry Marks on
2007 Mercury Mountaineer Premier 4dr SUV AWD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
I purchased my 2007 Mountaineer last March. For me this has been one fantastic vehicle. My average gas mileage was around 18.5mpg in combined driving and 25 on the open highway with three adults. The optional steering wheel controls for the radio, fan, and cruise were fantastic. I never needed to take my eyes off the road to make adjustments. The optional 3rd row seating came in handy on more than one occasion and were easy to operate. The only thing I did not like were the gaps in the cargo area when the 3rd row seats were stowed. I frequently haul a set of timpani (kettle drums) and the wheels wanted to fall in the cracks. Other than that, I love the vehicle.
Audio and fan controls on the steering wheel.
Provide protective mats that fill in the gaps when the 3rd row seating is stored.
