Cons: Can't say
Advice: Check the rubber-Merc' has gone to SUV tires as production continued.32,000 miles in the first year of ownership...does what's asked of it and looks good while doing it. Easy to keep clean, great long-distance runner yet easy to handle in urban settings. Great sound system, ample power from the new 4.6 with expected fuel consumption. This one was put together correctly. Original Goodyear passenger type tires were replaced with Michelin SUV rubber which corrected the earlier problems of a rough and uncertain handling ride. Dealership tries hard to please. This one is a keeper!
Pros: heated seats
Cons: hard to handle rear wiper switch.
Advice: negotiateFor overall appearence and quality, I am very satisfied with the product being offered.
Pros: All the new additions from the 2000
Cons: Can't say
Advice: You will not be sorryThis is a car in an SUV!! It is the most comfortable car I have ever driven. This is my second time around and they say things get better with age, totally on this vehicle, but you must get the V8. This is a peppy car and the V6 is not peppy enough. They did an aweome job on this one!!
Cons: fit on some pieces
Advice: It beats the overpriced Explorer!I bought the 4.6 liter option and it was well worth the extra $$. I like the overall handling, ergonomics took a while to get used to, smooth ride, and ability to haul alot of stuff or people. You get alot for your money.
Pros: V-8 power, 17 inch wheels, sound system (audiophile) and premier package (silver frost)
Cons: power seat control location, no built in video option.
Advice: value, safety, V-8 power and AWD and most of all distinctive looks.I bought this Mountaineer in May and I can say that is the best suv I have driven or ridden in. I previously owned a Plymouth Grand Voyager and thought that I would be sacraficing in versatility as far as space, comfort and ride. This vehicle has the power, comfort and ride plus performance and looks to boot. I get so many looks when I drive this suv as well as compliments. I believe for the dollar this is best mid size suv out there.
Pros: the V8 engine
Cons: the sound system
Advice: you should buy this very good 4x4.a very good 4x4 and every thing was very good. get the opt. v8.
Pros: 3 row fold down and covers
Cons: No under seat storage
Advice: Drive it, you'll like itI am a pet sitter and drive over 100 miles per day. The Mountaineer handles very well in all types of weather here in South Florida. I was truley impressed with the turning radius. I had previously owned a minivan and could never make the turn. Now, I can make the U turn in tight places with room to spare
