I hit the jackpot with this reliable beauty

I bought this SUV (Premiere edition) because it had all the bells and whistles I wanted- heated leather seats, sunroof, rear sensor warning, AWD, and everything else I could never afford in a new car. I kept it because it has been the most reliable car I have ever owned. It was 4 yrs old when I bought it, and 9 yrs later, I have no reason to replace it. The ONLY repair it ever needed was a $500 a/c part. I don't mind anymore that it only gets 19 mpg on the highway. I have definitely gotten my money's worth out of this car.

I used to own this type of car and it was good at first but then it started to have some issues. I have heard that this vehicle and the ford explorer which is from the same car company tend to break down frequently. My mom used to own a ford explorer and she experienced several mechanical problems. I tried to sell mine but it was really difficult maybe because people knew what to expect.

It is part of our family

We purchased this car 10 years ago new, and we love it. We usually buy a new one every 5 years, but we have been so happy with it, we would like to go 15 years. Usually doesn't need repairs, but when it does, grab your credit card. $1200 for an a/c line. It was in a bad accident 5 years ago, now today it needs a rear differential, wheel bearings and struts. I was told they are bullet proof and shouldn't have these problems. Got it back from the frame shop and found the body shop didn't fix the frame proper and caused this mess, they can choke on the $4000 repair bill because we love this thing and it isn't going anywhere.

I got my mountanieer with only 63,300 miles on it. Its the base model, but I love it. The ride is better than I thought it would be. So far everything has been great. No problems at all. I've only had it about 6 weeks now, but It's been driven to Chicago 6 times. The gas mileage isn't the best, but I cant complaine.

this is my third year with this suv, and over all i am very satisfied with it. purchased it used with around 50,000 miles on it in very good condition. it fits seven people comfortably, and handles great in snowy weathers. being from northern wisconsin, you need a good winter vehicle. it has slid sideways a couple times, mainly with me trying to get it to kick out. otherwise i have had no issues with it not getting traction, even without the awd kicking in. its a very quite riding vehicle, and obsorbs most of those bumps on the hwy going 65mph. it drives more like a car to me, rather then the usual SUV. it turns great, and doesnt have that wide radius like the explorer or expedition. for parking, its a one turn and your in. i have had to back up and re-park once due to turning on slick black top. now to the bad... every winter i have not got any better then 12 mpg in city and 16 mpg on highway. summer its about 14 city, and 17 maybe 18 on highway. the fuel mileage is NOT GOOD! After a year my ENTIRE front end needed to be replaced, thankfully i purchased the extended warranty! also the lumb bar in driver seat and heater in driver seat was replaced within the first week i had it. the cd player is still working, but it will go through its moments where it doesnt want to read cds... my car is at 81,000 right now, and now needs its u-joints replaced which isnt bad esspecially being awd. Over all nice vehicle, but would recommend not getting a car with AWD. to many parts moving and to much wear and tear on a vehicle, which means lots more repairing!!! over three years of owning this pig, and ford has most likly put over $3,000 into it.
