2002 Mercury Mountaineer AWD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


I've only driven my Mountaineer about
4,000 miles so far. Design wise it's a
heck of a lot better vehicle than my
old 94' Explorer. The more I look at
the outside, the more pretentious it
strikes me. Still... I've received
alot of compliments on it's looks. It
handles great and has alot of those
handy little storage spaces. I was a
little nervous about going from 4WD to
AWD but the thing was great in the
snows of Vermont. It does occasionally
knock slightly on regular gas but it
seems like a good strong engine for a 6
cylinder. Overall I'm very happy with

Best Features

There are a number of storage spaces that keep the vehicle neater inside. It's handling is real tight for an SUV. The lift gate door is a great design.

Worst Features

1)Upgrade the standard hitch to Class III. 2)Replace those flimsey clothes hooks with something more substantial. 3)The vehicle is so high running boards should be standard. 4)Even more inside storage spaces. 5)Easier to handle wiper controls (maybe on the steering wheel?)
