2008 Mercury Mountaineer Premier 4dr SUV AWD (4.6L 8cyl 6A)
Does Ford Motor Co care about losing a loyal customer?In my case the answer is no, not at all.I leased a 2008 Mercury Mountaineer 11/07,our third one.It was fine until 4/09 when it didn't start one day.Then it began to happen more frequently.My family ha been stranded countless times due to this problem. After several attempts at Ford Lincoln Mercury dealerships to fix the problem it still exists.The alternator,starter bad relay and battery have all been replaced yet several times a week I am left stranded somewhere with this defective vehicle that won't start.I have been in communication with the Ford Cust. Solutions team through two courses of repairs,a Special Ford Engineer was even sent
Smooth ride, great pick-up, ample seating space. Seat heaters and third- row splits 60/40 and also folds with the push of a button. Mid-size SUV.
Aside from the fact that it won't start randomly daily or weekly; the gas mileage is poor and when driving through puddles, the water splashes up from the front wheels onto the windshield!
