2000 Mercury Mountaineer 5.0 302 V8 from North America
Built like a rock
One day the driver window up/down switch didn't work. I thought about it, shook the thing and it has worked ever since (5 years). That's all folks!
I owned a Toyota Corona for 20 years and made one repair (the clutch slave cylinder). After five years, no repairs on this Mercury.
It starts first time, every time.
Great ride, quiet, powerful, solid.
No squeaks. None! After ten years!
Where's the engine? Must be a nightmare to work on. Oil filter is so hidden and hard to get at; drives me nuts.
Bad. Paid $12,500 used, now worth $6,700. How can such a fantastically built vehicle drop value like a rock?
Best vehicle I ever owned.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
