1997 Mercury Mountaineer 4dr SUV AWD


There aren't too many vehicles that can
keep up if you accelerate in the 30mph
to 70mph range. While this truck is
very fast, with its grip on the road,
the only way to get rubber is by taking
a corner too fast. If you are stopped
with the engine running and the
accelerator seems to be stuck, it is
probably that your foot is on the brake
and the gas pedals at the same time.
Due to the closeness of these two
pedals, I have had this experience a few
times. It can be pretty scary because
the harder you push down on the brake,
the more the truck tries to lurch.
(Because your foot is also on the
accelerator too). This aside, this is
my favorite vehicle of all time.

Best Features

Definitely the acceleration and raw speed.

Worst Features

Space out the gas and brake pedal. Work on gas mileage, my other vehicle is a very large Suburban and it gets nearly the same mileage.
