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


Had to replace front rotors and brakes when we first bought it. Makes a roaring noise because real axle is bad. At 110,000 miles lost all oil and motor went out, oil warning light never came on so I had no idea I had lost all the oil. We replace the motor and now have tranny problems. Also it has a water leak somewhere and have water stains on the seats that won't come out.

Best Features

Love the ride and comfort and handling.

Worst Features

definitely the axles since that seems to be a recurring problem and better tranny
