2004 Mercury Mountaineer SUV Convenience AWD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I loved this car! Very comfortable to drive and lots of room for 2 kids and their friends. Great for long distance traveling. Only things I didn't like were the poor fuel economy, I was forever filling up and a little road noise from the tires. Other than that, this is the best SUV around!


Best Features

Great comfortable driver's seat and roomy interior


Worst Features

A little noisy!

Review

The SUV has given me no problems.I tow a 2-horse trailer and it pulls great. Why have a truck when the comfort and tow is all in this car. I am about to buy a new one


Best Features

Smooth ride comfort and luxury. Great tow compacity


Worst Features

Better gas mileage. Don't need third row of seats.

Review

This is my 3rd mountaineer, and on all 3 the windows froze and wouldn't thaw till driven 15 min w/defrost hi. Wipers also a problem-froze up quickly. 2001&2004 'check tire pressure'lite always came on even when pressure was ok.I love the OD on/off-I do a lot of just riding in the mtns. Never been a problem w/ control in heavy snow-I can get right thru snowbanks when I'm plowed in. I guess I love it if I have had 3 mountaineers since 1998.


Best Features

AWD, backup alarm, info panel. 3rd row seat unnecessary for me.


Worst Features

1998 model dash and console were better than 2004. A little woodgrain would be nice. 60/40 back seat split was better than the 3 splits. You've got to work on the windows that freeze tight and won't open!

Review

overall i am not too impressed. i am glad i leased it and did not buy it. it is extremely poor on gas mileage. all the doors and trunk do not latch well. the keyless entry does not alwasy work. since the transmission recall my vehicle "needed" was done, it works worse. three car seats do not fit in the second row. heating system does not heat up fast enough, but the heated seated are awesome. rear speakers are terrible and tinny sounding. needs trunk release button in the vehicle (its only on the remote). mercury service stinks. I thought having a third row was a plus until I tried to get to it. BOTTOM LINE - I BOUGHT THIS AS A FAMILY VEHICLE --BAD CHOICE!!!


Best Features

heated seats and it goes FAST!


Worst Features

need a trunk release from inside the vehicle, better gas mileage, trunk is VERY hard to close(impossible with one hand - not practical for a Mom with kids), doors and trunk do not close properly unless slammed shut, make this vehicle more family friendly!
