Best Big Tank
Pros: smooth ride
Cons: windowsThis is my 4th Grand Marquis. My grandchildren call my cars the Grannymobile, however, the car is very comfortable on a trip ( I have sciatia nerve problem) and gets 27 mpg on the highway. I can fit 6 people with seatbelts and lots of luggage (oversized trunck). Problems: electric windows fail after a while. I had to put a new transmission in the 2000 model. Windows rolled down sluggishly from the beginning. I may not be happy with a smaller vehicle or one without comfortable bench seats.
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.
Pros: Low cost of ownership
Cons: Sorry, there is nothing I do not like about this car!This auto was purchased used and has been one of the best auto I have owned in the 40 or so auto's I have owned in my life. Required little maintenance, parts are excellent, ride is supperior and I feel very safe in the auto.
This is a reliable car
Pros: tinted windows and leather seatswill get you in town or out with no problem
Great vehilcle. No major problems. Owned for 10+ years.
Good ride for the money
Pros: Comfort and drivability
Cons: The instrument cluster. I can't see the mileage indicator - a mistake in design.I have owned Lincolns for many years and this is my first ownership of a Mercury since the Sable days two decades ago. The car is very comfortable, with good cushioning in the seats. The mileage is very satisfactory and the quality, while not matching that of the Lincoln MKZ (for many thousands more) is acceptable. I recommend this car.
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.
