Can't kill this truck
By Owned since new on
Vehicle1997 Mercury Mountaineer 4dr SUV AWD
ReviewI bought this brand new off the dealer lot. It has every option you could order. I've never driven anything better in the snow. I've only had to replace a front all wheel drive part and it has been hard on dash lights for some reason. It tows a boat twice the size of the truck. Expect about 13 to 14 MPG in the city in the V8 and about 18 MPH on the highway at 70 MPH. I've seen several in crashes and they hold up like a tank. The AWD model gets 65 percent power from the rear wheels and 35 from the front. When slipping or in the snow the computer adjusts for traction. It rides like a truck but if you can find one in good shape you have a good truck for as long as you want to own it.
Best FeaturesAWD in the winter. Reliability. Towing power.
Worst FeaturesGet me out of AWD in the summer. The ride, but that has been improved. More reliable bulbs in the dash
