2005 Mercury Mountaineer Premier V8
This was a 42 month lease.
Never left us stranded
Absolutely nothing went wrong for the entire time we leased it. Gas, brakes, tires. That's it.
OK, maybe I'm lying...
1st week - faulty gas gauge was replaced. Loaner given.
3rd year- an umbrella was stuck in tracks of the passenger seat. It was inoperable. Covered under warranty. Again a loaner.
Never did get to know my service manager on a first name basis. Wish I could say the same for the GMC Acadia that replaced the Mercury.
The V8 is thirsty. It hurt back then when we were nearing the $5 mark.
The car is a tank, built solid.
I wish that the 3rd row was split as in newer models.
I'm looking for a commuter/station car, which is what brought me to this site.
Go with Premier with all bells and whistles, you won't regret it. Back up sensors come in handy for city parking.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
