Used 2008 Mercury Mountaineer Pricing

Consumer Rating

2008 Highlights

Standard equipment and package content changes mark the 2008 Mercury Mountaineer. Leather upholstery and dual-zone automatic climate control are no longer standard on the base model, and the Premier trim goes without such previously standard items as the power-folding third-row seat, parking assist and heated front seats with memory. They now become options. A "Mercury Sync" system debuts later in the year; it allows drivers to easily control cell phones, iPods and other electronic devices through voice commands and the vehicle's control inputs. Other changes include newly optional 20-inch wheels and a capless fuel filler (both with late availability).


  • Composed and smooth ride, agile handling, quality cabin with plenty of passenger room in all three rows, all major safety features come standard.


  • Spongy brake feel, V8 doesn't feel as strong as competitors' engines, no dual-range 4WD available, some cheap interior pieces, poor resale value.

My third mountaineer and it's a lemon!
Does Ford Motor Co care about losing a loyal customer?In my case the answer is no, not at all.I leased a 2008 Mercury Mountaineer 11/07,our third one.It was fine until 4/09 when it didn't start one day.Then it began to happen more frequently.My family ha been stranded countless times due to this problem. After several attempts at Ford Lincoln Mercury dealerships to fix the problem it still exists.The alternator,starter bad relay and battery have all been replaced yet several times a week I am left stranded somewhere with this defective vehicle that won't start.I have been in communication with the Ford Cust. Solutions team through two courses of repairs,a Special Ford Engineer was even sent
No other SUV comes close to Mountaineer
This is a great SUV. Mercury really put their effort and time in this vehicle. All the details are very thought out and has a very stylish exterior and interior. It is very spacious and will fit any large family with up to 7. I really like how nice the ride is and is very comfortable. We were looking at other vehicles to consider, but we made a very smart choice and got this. This is a perfect SUV for a single person or a family of 7. And the V8 engine is very powerful and its just an overall awesome vehicle to own.
Love the SUV, but poor interior quality
We love the room, the ride, the v8 power, the appearance, and we know from the past that we will love the AWD. The MPG is acceptable for an AWD mid-size SUV. We test drove the vehicle on a bright sunny day 98 F and heard no rattles or noises, but took delivery in the evening after sundown, temp 71F. On the way home the upper console started making an annoying noise when we hit seams in the road. We made 2 visits to fix the problem. Another Mountaineer that hadn't been prepped did the same thing, as did the 08 Explorer Rental. Service manager said that if more than 2 do the same, then Ford would say they're built that way. Excuse me? Dealer put foam in that area. Problem solved for now?
