great vehicle

by northern lights from minnesota on Tue Jun 08 2010

I have 259K on it now and it doesnt use or leak any fluids. runs great and always has. I have the 5.0 v8 and would recommend this drive train to anyone. Gets decent milage for an AWD and is great in the snow. From MN so know about snow. The only repairs I have done in over 8 years is ball joints twice but as I put on alot of miles this was not too unexpected. Of course tires and brakes have been done also but that is it.

Outstanding

by HeadStirlingite from Socorro, NM on Mon Nov 14 2016

I got this in 2011 with about 168k miles on it. Today it has 198k miles on it and has been driving across the USA three times with zero issues. Things that have been replaced other than usual things are front and rear pinion seals, front driveshaft, and front inner and outer tie rods. The only bad thing i'd say is the door lock acuators were very finicky to get working again when they did go wrong. Other than this it's been mechanically superb. Even the fuel economy is still good at high mileage. Finally, i've done quite a lot of off road driving with this. Anywhere from mild to pretty severe for what it is. The offroad capability is far better than one would expect. There's nothing i can really complain about with it.

nice value

by Value Buyer from Detroit Michigan on Mon Nov 04 2013

I found the Mercury Mountaineer at Cars.com. Had only 78k original miles for a 1997! Runs great, well-maintained, out the door from the dealer for just under $4100! Drove 3 hours from home to find the vehicle. Dealer took care of everything, plates, paperwork, etc.Very satisfied! This is the 2nd time I have found a good used vehicle, highly recommend Cars.com!
