Rides like a truck.
Pros: Heated seats
Cons: Automatic oil change light.Overall great tough vehicle. But the ride gets a bit bumpy depending wich way you go.
Cons: Gas mileage could be better.We bought this car new and we love it. We haven't had any problems with it. We love the space and the size of it, Ploenty of room.
its actually a 1998 mercury mountioneer
Pros: the seat is comfortable
Cons: how easy everything messes upmy husband insisted on getting this vehicle. all in all it has been a great vehicle. it just gets really bad gas mileage. its a v8 so of course it is suppose to, but i am not use to it. the airconditioner is all messed up. it turns on when i turn the vent on. its on no matter what i have turned on. if i turn it to the ac part itself, it makes a aweful noise and smell. the wiring is all messed up on the dash. has been from day one. the radio lights dont light up. the interior light switch is messed up. it cost way too much to fix any of these things. its very compact. not much room at all. the rear wiper want stay on. lost two so far. i just dont use it any more. there are so many things wrong with it. it has a great engine though. the transmission seems to be good. its everything else that isnt good.
Great vehicle for the traveling family
Pros: The powerful V8 Engine
Cons: The gas consumptionWe love our 2006 Mercury Mountaineer, V8, 4.6 L Luxury Package SUV. It is durable classy (with the interior leather and chrome accents). We love going on long trips regardless if it is to the mountains or to the beach, Our Mountaineer allows us to haul whatever we may need for the trip and the kids as well. The downside is the Gas consumption, 15 City and 20 Highway MPG. the Upside you get a powerful V8 engine that allows you to climb hills and mountains with no hesitation. The Mountaineer is rugged and if you purchase AWD/ 4 WD Package you can practically go anywhere with your family. Great product Ford Motor Company! Can't wait for the new edition due out next year.
