I bought mine when it had 20,000

1998 Mercury Mountaineer 4dr SUV 4WD


Our Mountaineer had been sitting on the dealer lot for 1 year when we bought it. For it's use it had a lot of miles on it, but 20K ain't to bad, we got it for $17K in early 2000. I personally hate the console because you have less room. The things I have loved about it, hauling ability, towing capacity and with the power chip the performance in town and on the highway. I can do a brake job on this truck 20 minutes per wheel. The repair costs have been pretty low, a intake gasket, brakes, even the tires were cheap when you look at the mileage. So stuff that sucks, radio display and compass display faded, driver door lock. and now the tranny is acting up with 150K mi...
Paint has held up well

Best Features

I liked the rear comfort control and the stereo, kids could listen to a CD and we could listen to the radio. I love the dual visors, first time I ever had those and they are great on day trips or waiting in traffic

Worst Features

Get a different display for the compass and the stereo, should come with a class IV receiver hitch standard. The push button 4 wheel hi-low needs an improvement, sometimes it's difficult to get out of low or high range back into auto
