Great handling by Nascar in AZ on 08/29/2009. Trim: 2005 Mercury Mountaineer Luxury 4.0L AWD, Owned 4 years.
Pros: Great handling, expecially when parking in tight spaces. I average 19 MPG city and 21 hwy, however when I let other people drive MPG drops to 13.5, so it's your own driving habits that determine the MPG. Seats 4 confortably, I have only used the 3rd row seat a few times but it's definitely designed for small children.
Cons: A/C is loud - this is normal operation according to the dealer. Floor vent next to gas pedal cannot be closed, re-directed, or turnned off so if your on a long trip and have the air on your foot will get too cold or hot. Aside from normal maintenance, only a few issues. ABS rattle noise when resets (normal). Wheel bearings not torqued during factory assembley, major front brake repair with about 200 miles on truck, new driveline around 1K miles, window motor shorted out, and trim cracked on rear window around logo. Loose body mounts around 25K. Now an intermittent front end vibration/noise dealer able to duplicate once, but not long enough to diagnose. Current miles 33,000.
Overall review: Aside from the repairs, this has been a very dependable truck, and it suits my needs. I have Ford ESP, so I'm not all concerned about future repairs not being covered by warranty. Would I buy another? At 8K miles a year, I won't need a new car for many years, and by then they'll probably be outlawed due to poor MPG ratings, if it is available then yes I would buy another.

Greatest all purpose vehicle ever by Tom from Vincennes, Indiana on 02/06/2008. Trim: 2005 Mercury Mountaineer Premier 4.6L AWD, Owned 1 year.
Pros: It is not a big car but it is big enought to be comfortable. Very easy to park.Nice looking car.
Cons: It is a V8 and it has plenty of pep but is not easy on gas. A lot of our driving is city and you can only expect about 14 miles per gal.The comfort enjoyment of driving helps you to forget the bad gas mileage
Overall review: Setting here thinking about it,not sure I would buy another one untill you get behind the wheel and you are driving it, then the doubt soon leaves your mind
