1998 Mercury Mountaineer 4dr SUV AWD


Not that anyone cares on this old of a SUV but, has been an excellant SUV in 10 yrs and 155000 miles. One radiator, a spring and piston($300) in tranny repair,driver door mechanism ($300) Have maintained it well oil at 3k miles, etc. V8 just never fails AWD great on snow. Have the normal problems lost radio display, never fixed, and driver seat lever broke off - never repaired as set for me and wife drives a car. Fourth ford I have owned others great also. Only negative is gas mileage 20-21 on highway but normal for a V-8 SUV

Best Features

Seat comfort, visibility due to high driving position, cargo capacity

Worst Features

10 years later? None. Have loved the SUV from day one
