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


Ford's powertrains are much inferior to
GM. I would have bought the Encore
with a better powertrain and fuel
economy except for the features. I
like to have the 3rd row seat without
the half mile extension on the GM
SUV's. However, this truck can pull my
boat without any issues. Overall I
like it better than GM. I just wish it
got better fuel economy.

Best Features

Interior design is very comfortable and well laid out. A 3rd row seat without a long vehilce is a plus. It is only used occasionally so I don't want the difficulty to manuever in tight spots.

Worst Features

Better fuel economy on the V8. This engine sucks the life out of my wallet. Also, the 3rd row seat needs to fold flat into the floor. Stacking cargo can be a real pain sometimes.
