1998 Mercury Mountaineer 4dr SUV AWD


Purchased new: Now is going on 165000 miles. Out of pocket repairs were few 1.drivers door hardware $350 2.new radiator $500 3.Tranny repair $350. That is all. Car just runs and runs.Burns no oil although now has a very minor oil leak at rear seal. We have v-8 with all wheel drive great for ski trips and trips in snow country in general. Has great towing capacity. Gas mileage in suburban driving is 17-18 on highway20-21. Has been a GREAT car. Radio lights operate intermittantly and drivers seatback handle has broken off both very common design problems with this truck. Other than that no complaints at all.

Best Features

Drive height provides great visabiliy. Front seats absolutley awesome for comfort. All wheel drive is a winner.

Worst Features

Is an outdated vehicle. Replacement needs to have MUCH better gas mileage and more safety features such as side airbags, stability control, etc.
