1999 Mercury Mountaineer 4dr SUV AWD


Review

I see it as a woman's truck. It holds the kids, the gear and tows the boat. For camping we set up the tent as a storage closet and sleep in the truck. I love the rear controls, they come in handy to teach the kids how to work the radio and for the nights sleeping in the back, the temp and radio are at my fingertips. Looks nice, handles awesome, and is very fun to drive. It is a TANK in the rain. I have the V8, so it uses gas, but it is an SUV. It's a classy Explorer with lots of little added features that make it more luxurious.


Best Features

Moon roof, leather, fog lights, rear wiper, AWD, stereo system, extra power plug, Auto Lamp, rear radio/temp controls. There are so many. Cargo area is great for tag sale-ing, holds lots of groceries, luggage for trips, sporting equip, etc.


Worst Features

Electrical defaults are standard on the Mountaineer. The radio will crap out, but spend the $100 to get it fixed and it's fine. The rear wiper motor will go some time after 100,000 miles. The cupholders in the rear are only useful while NOT in motion. The digital temp/compass should have milage/trip

Review

For the money, the looks and the performance this SUV is a very good deal. The interior is well fit, no squeaks ect., the leather still smells new and has held up very well. The AWD is exceptional in the snow and wet and my wife has confidence while driving it. More money than an Explorer but (I have had 5)worth the step up.


Best Features

The feeling of "in control" when you get in followed by "this is nice".


Worst Features

More controls for the seat placement, tall people have problems getting adjusted.

Review

After looking at Explorers for a
couple of weeks, we found that there
were way too many options and interior
and exterior colors. Finding a V8
with grey interior and good options
was impossible. We found the
Mountaineer to have all the upgrades
we wanted and had more of a luxury
feel. The head lights, tail lights,
and grill set it apart from the
Explorer. The V6 is powerful, but if
you tow or just love power (like me),
you have to get the 5.0 V8.


Best Features

-Center consol info center. -V8 power. -Little fade in brakes. -Roominess in the front and rear seats. -Fold rear seats down and there is a plethora of room.


Worst Features

-Better material in leather seats.

Review

If you want the reliability of an
Explorer, but want to drive something a
little differant and a little more
upgraded, pick a Mountaineer.

I have driven it in every kind of
weather and it has performed great.
