2007 Mercury Mountaineer 4dr SUV AWD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
This is my second mountaineer, I bought it brand new and got a deal because the mercury dealership was going out of business. The interior quality has decreases dramatically from the 2002 model I previously drove. It looks nice inside, just cheaply quality. Navigation makes it look very nice, and is very functional. Sound system is great. Exterior quality is OK. The paint has always been excellent on Fords, but the rims are a real problem. I don't recommend the polished aluminum rims. They have a terrible protective coat and a week of salt will destroy them. Ford customer service has always been awful, but the vehicles are a pretty good deal.
Navigation, sporty yet comfortable interior, fuel economy is excellent compared to similar SUVs
It lacks many standard features for being a luxury upgrade from the Explorer. Exterior and interior quality is pretty low.
