i feel very secure in this vehicle, and whenever i give someone a ride, the first thing they say is(this is nice) and i say(i know). fuel useage is good for the size & power of the vehicle, i get 21-23 on the highway and 15-17 around town, driving in snow is the same as dry pavement(i have awd)just have to watch out for others, i will always own a merc, thanks

I loved my mountaineer so much, unfortunatly i totaled it but its such a great car for the money. It offers luxery for half the price of other suvs and is reliable as well. The only downfall of it is its gas consumption with 5.0 v-8 but its worth it, it sounds like a muscle car at times and will blow away its competion. Some minor problems included fading display lights inside and rusting on rear bumper.

We've owned Mountaineer for 10 years and have had only regularly scheduled maintainence - no major repair issues - totally reliable. Strong 5.0 V-8 engine, comfortable and classy ride, great sound system (Mach 1), leather - what can I say this is a great SUV. Zero complaints after 10 years.

I really love my Mountaineer the price was great and so is the performance and handling. My only complaint is the seat belts do not roll up with out getting stuck or twisted from the seat. It almost seems they are wound tight enough.

Very good SUV

by from Arlington Heights IL on November 22, 2008

I had this car for over 6 years and never had any major problems. The 5.0 engine is the best very powerful and reliable.

Unreal SUV

The 2000 Mercury Mountaineer is the strongest, most comfortable SUV I've driven. The 5.0 engine is a winner and makes smaller displacement motors seem anemic. Mercury paired this proven powerplant with an exhaust rumble guarnateed to excite. The styling ques exceed plain jane Explorers inside and out. My only complaint is a burned out display on an otherwise great sound system (this is typical for quite a few older Mountaineers and Fords.) I highly recommend this vehicle to all SUV enthusiasts. If you can find a nice Mountaineer with a 5.0 engine in good condition...buy it.

i recently bought a 2000 mountaineer with the 5.0 v8 for my fiance, lets just say shes now driving my 02 explorer. i drive this truck everywhere. my opinion, the only downfall is its not the prettiest thing when all the new 2015's pull up next to you, however, its got PLENTY of power and sounds amazing. i put a good set of all terrain tires on it and its great in the snow, sand, mud.. ive never done extreme offroading in it here in michigan, but ive never had any problems offroad yet. its at 210k miles and more reliable than the 02 explorer.

bought my 2000 mountaineer premier used 5 years ago with 120000 miles on it. 200000 miles and still going strong. 5 liter V8 has more than enough power. inside the suv is all comfort and gadgets. the leather and the sunroof makes it seem like your in a Lincoln. I live in Wisconsin and have yet to find a snowy condition this thing cant handle with ease. don't buy one for gas mileage because the V8 does enjoy gas. about 15 in town and 23 on solid highway driving. pulls my 18 foot bass boat with no problem. I would still keep this over any other one on the market

Reliable, Solid and Powerful

If you are looking for a good looking SUV for the money, this is a good one. One of the biggest selling SUV's except I think the Mountaineer is better looking than its look-a-like Ford Explorer. It's reliable and solid. The ride is comfortable on smooth surfaces but on terrain, well, its an SUV. V-8 has good power but it can guzzle just like any V-8. I average 13mpg city and 18mpg highway.
