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


From reading reviews I guess I am lucky. I have a 2002 Mountaineer purchased new with about 77000 miles right now. The rear suspension rotted out on it 500.00 to repair, and now the ignition cylinder fell apart. 101.00 labor at the dealer and 100.00 for the part.About one hour labor. I am 62 years old and will be buying another new vehicle this year, but not a ford product. Toyota always has some vehicles in car and driver american made list. Which is why I did just purchase a new Toyota Tundra and will probably buy a Toyota car of some model.

Best Features

Looks nice.

Worst Features

Improve design so springs do not rot off. A dealer told me the design is why my rear suspension rotted out.
