"In addition to everything else listed, this SUV features Two Way opening for the rear tail gate, Power locks and alarm plus keyless entry. Safety features include driver and passenger side air bags. Then there's heated seats, bucket seats and rear facing third row seating. Did I mention the Trailering Package, Running Boards with Side Steps.
Great Car ... Great Price."
Cons: "The cracked back door that Mercury wouldn't fix."

"My only problem is the back door around the Mercury symbol is cracked and Mercury would not fix it. I purched my SUV with 3 miles on it and would buy another Mountaineer, if it was not for the cracked back door that Mercury would not fix. I see many SUV's like mine that is cracked also."
"Bought the car from dealer as a company exec car in 2004. Never had a bad experience with the car. No major repairs. Still no leaks on the garage floor. Minor problem with stereo speakers but not enough to get it fixed."
