1998 Mercury Mountaineer 4dr SUV AWD


Purchased new and has been my daily driver going on 11 years.Only major problems one radiator, one minor tranny repair ($400), driver side door hardware ($400).Radio has intermittent display light malfunction. After 150k miles burns no oil drives perfectly. Have used many times for towing and is awesome. We also use it in mountain snow country regularly and is fantastic! Will keep it even when we purchase the next car.

Best Features

Love the electronic control to shift to third gear when mountain driving. Is very functional. Also visibility is great. Interior space for hauling is very useful. Use all the time

Worst Features

Better gas mileage but get better than what sticker said. Can get 21 on the highway if I drive sensibily (70mph) and get 17in town mixed driving.
