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


I love the way this vehicle drives, I love the way it handles and the comfort. However, I hate the repair cost! I've had small transmission problems starting at 41k. At 77k , I spent 1400 in repairs. Today, I forked over $2100 for a new transmission at 106k miles. If that's not painful enough, the differential (sp?) was also shot! My repair fellow said he sees this on the Explorer and Mountaineers- I've never heard of those going bad? After $1100 for that, I can promise you that I won't be a repeat purchaser of a Ford product. I had a Windstar prior to the Mountaineer. My trans went out at 38k on that and was going out again at 110k when I got rid of it for the SUV.
