Cons

Im not complaining

My Winter Car — This is my new winter Ride....for a V-8 powered suv it actually gets fairly decent fuel economy...unless im driving like a jackass everwhere...and it is nice having so much room in it so this definitely fits my needs

I Love This Vehicle More Reliable Than Anything Else I Have Owned — nothing I dislike best vehicle I have owned has 158,000 miles on it and still going strong only routine maintenance required. Very comfortable to drive excellent handling not in the shop very often plenty of get up and go. I have owned it for 8 years and it has by far been the best vehicle on all levels since I bought it. Of course because it has 8 cylinders it has been tough to keep filled with gas since the tremendous price increases on fuel but the overall dependability cancel that out as far as I am concerned

Cons

nothing

It Should Come Out Again Bigger But Still V6 — It does very good on gas and mileage,its a V6. Its comfortable and good for a big family vacation without feeling crowded. You have the convience of using the 3rd row or if you need the cargo space putting it down. Its smooth and its like driving an car but its an suv

Pros

The 4.0 liter motor is great. The looks of the car is nice. very comfortable. AWD makes you feel safe.

Cons

150 K miles- new transmission. Kind of expensive. AWD is nice, but only gets 14 - 16 mpg, usually.

Good Car — I think its a very comfortable, Good looking car. runs great. nice options. Not great on mpg. I really like the looks of the car. Has great stereo, with built in DVD in the back. Carries groceries as well as some building materials. Recently test drove an FX 35, Infinity 03. I like my Mercury better! More power, approximately the same options and a lot more room. Real close on mpg too!

Nice Car To Own — This is a AWD V8. It was bought to use a the all around car. Gas mileage is around 19 mpg. The interior is a little rough. The exterior is great. The engine is the 4.6L V8 which give it the get up an go.

Not Too Bad By Char792

I just wish that it was in better condition than when I had gotten it. It was great as a first car, but nothing more really. Not a fault of the car itself, but of the previous owner of the thing. Read More

A Very Good Vehicle! By AbandonedGalaxie

I've always liked Eord Motor Company's SUVs anyway and I'm partial to Mercurys just because of their 'mystigue' (sorry about the pun) so when I saw the one I own now on a used car lot (where I'd done ... Read More
