Car Review: 1997 Mercury Mountaineer
April 17, 2009, 07:25 PM
Bought the truck used with 57,000 on it. It looks just like the one in the picture! Had the transmission rebuilt at 60,000 due to problems (used car dealer did under his warranty). Had to replace a cracked exhaust manifold. Battery acid dripped onto a vacuum line and caused major leak. Radiator sprang a leak and had to be replaced. Had to replace the front end suspension links at 190,000. Recently, the electric door lock on the driver's side stopped working. I use this vehicle to tow a boat and it is a real workhorse. My wife loves to drive it because of the higher view she gets of traffic. I would buy another one in a heartbeat!

Brakes started pulsating at 75,000 and had to replace the front rotors and pads. Otherwise, have had no problems at all with this little car.
