2002 Mercury Mountaineer 2WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


We were won over by the styling and
additional features of the Montaineer,
most notably the standard third row
seat for hauling around the relatives
and little league team on occassion.
The Mountaineer handles this task
admirably, with suprisingly good
legroom and comfort for the third row
seat. The independent rear suspension
provides a very comfortable ride, and
the 5.0L V-8 is very peppy with good
torque for trailer pulling. Very smooth
riding and extra stable at highway
speed. Quality has been excellent.
Mileage of 17 to 20 Mpg could be a bit
better, but overall the truck has
provided a very enjoyable ownership

Best Features

Standard seven passenger seating with easy operating fold down third seat. Smooth riding independent suspension. Automatic rear liftgate window for quick and easy cargo access. Mercury styling cues, external and internal.

Worst Features

We live in Northern California, and take the vehicle up into the foothills and along the coast on Hwy 1 quite often. The automatic five speed seems to be a bit clunky at times when downshifting on these twisty roads.
