1997 Mercury Mountaineer 4dr SUV AWD


Purchased my Mounty from a friend for $800. Had to put brakes on it, and replace a rear spring shackle. I have less than $1100 in this thing!!! Engine/tranny run/shift like new. I live in the country, and my Jeep is broken down, and I needed a 2nd 4wd anyway. This thing climbs my muddy/snowy driveway w/o any difficulty. I get about the same mileage as I did in my 97 wrangler. I have 190k on her, and the 5.0liter w/ AWD. I'm getting spoiled by the creature comforts, and everything works!! Definately recommend one of these to anyone considering purchasing a midsize SUV that gets so-so mileage.

Best Features

All the gadgets and gizmos. PWR moonroof, adjustable leather seats, great stereo....

Worst Features

I miss having a 4lo setting, but it's not an "off road" vehicle anyway. I'll have to fix my Jeep for that.
