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


I bought this vehicle new and maintained it. At 38,000 miles the transmission needed to be replaced. Unacceptable. After threatening to protest at the dealer, they discounted the cost. 50,000 miles later, that one went too. Ford couldn't care less. This in my opinion is not normal. Even the dealer service agreed and they were equally frustrated with Ford HQ. I really had no other complaints besides the disappointing gas mileage however, like I've read in other reviews, I've lost my faith with American cars especially Ford. I'm afraid to chance it. With 130,000 miles being on the 3rd tranny, it's time to start looking.While I still can't really find anything I like as much, I'll skip Ford.

Best Features

3rd row seating. Great turning radius. Rear glass hatch (split).

Worst Features

Transmission issues need to be corrected!
