headache in disguise
By Terrell.le on


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


i bought my 2002 mercury mountaineer used in January of 2009, Truck did good for 2 hours then the both the front wheel bearings went. Shortly after the dealership fixed this problems i was back in the shop again. The power steering pump went along with the rack and pinion. I have only purchased the mountaineer 2 weeks prior. I made it another month until the transmission blew out on my on the expressway. Took the dealership 10 days to rebuild my new transmission and it still shifts kinda funny. Now 5 months later and the front differential is beginning to go, thanks god for extended warranties! Word of advise for anyone buying this model, DON'T! Save yourself the trouble!

Best Features

comfortable seating, the all wheel drive(driving in snow)

Worst Features

A good quality transmission and drive train, better MPG, better door handles (tend to freeze and get stuck in the colder months)
