No problem - great truck!
By mitch on


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


I have a very early 02 w/ v8, loaded. Engine is very strong, but trans really is lousy - kicks and slips, but haven't had it serviced yet, as it doesn't seem to be getting worse. I have extended warranty, so not to worried. No locking glove compartment or gas cap. Kind of strange. MPG 13/19 - goes up a little if you are easy on the gas or use cruise. Tires lasted 40K, and I was rough! Front brakes lasted the same -very good! Would definitely recommend new 06 w/ that super v8! Hope they fix the trans probs, and honor warrantys! :)

Best Features

Power, You sit high up, feels stiff and heavy, very strong. v8 sound!

Worst Features

Climate control not so in-tune - takes a few degree change for it to change. Trans is really bad. Locking gas & glove compartments. Less hard plastics inside. Better aerodynamics - It's a brick in the wind, w/ lots of wind noise.
