Think twice before you buy a Mountaineer 2007 or 2008. by An MSN Autos Consumer on 05/24/2008. Trim: 2008 Mercury Mountaineer 4X2 Premier 4.6L, Owned 1 year.

Pros: Very comfortable SUV, lots of room in front and all back passenger seating. Great options, lots of power couldn't want anything more in a SUV.
Cons: We purchased a 2007 Mountaineer and within the first 500 miles we experienced problems with the transmission when slowing around 30mph as well as acceleration. Also have problems with front end. The car went into the shop at 1145 miles and we were jumping in/out of gears and the rpms would increase like the transmission was slipping. It has been in the shop 7-times (YES, 7) for the transmission, 5-for the front end and 3-for problems with the front seats. After we contacted the Better Business Bureau and 45-days of arguing with Ford, the Dealer and Ford took the 2007 Mountaineer back and allowed us to pick a new 2008 Mountaineer. Have driven the new 2008 for 500 miles.
Overall review: We purchased a 2007 Mountaineer and within the first 500 miles we experienced problems with the transmission when slowing around 30mph as well as acceleration. Also have problems with front end. The car went into the shop at 1145 miles and we were told by the dealer that the transmission learns from the driver as to how it shifts and handles and that we need to drive it for 5000 miles an all should be fine. Within 1500 mile the transmission began very hard downshifting, jumping in/out of gears and the rpms would increase like the transmission was slipping. Again, took it to the dealer and they re-programmed the transmission ans said all is fine. again, within 3500 miles the same problems, but worse. Took it back for the 3rd time around 9000 miles and was in the shop for 57-days. It is now a lemon and since been repurchased by Ford. Was replaced with 2008 however the 2008 is also experiencing the exact same transmission problems. I will be trading in my 2008 Mountaineer for a NON-FORD!
