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."
"AWD works great on this vehicle. Have had no major issues with it. AC and Heat get the job done nicely. Only down side is the leather seats that don't have heated seats. Takes a while for seats to warm up in winter. MPG's are great. Averaging right around 20mpg right now."
Pros: "Safety features & good view in all directions"
Cons: "not real good on gas but that is o.k."

"I bought this car new and the only problem I have had is to rebuild the transmission. Other than that, I have treated it like a baby. It has been kept in the garage when not in use. I feel safe in this car. I have had it serviced every 3,000 miles. It has had only 2 sets of tires and 2 brake jobs. I love this car because I hve a bum back and it is easy to get in and out and supports my back. It looks new and I have had people ask if I wanted to sell it. Of course, my answer is "no", the maintenance and good love and care are the secret to a car staying new regardless of the years you have had it. Great audio system, also."
