I Found My Black Beauty Mountaineer — I just had spinal surgery and LOVE the heated seats with lumbar support. Had a few emergency runs to hospital, no fear in the Mountaineer. I'm getting up in years, and yet I find myself needing more room in a vehicle day by day. I have grand kids I'll want to go see one day. I love to travel and this vehicle here is the perfect choice to do that in. Room room and even more room. Towing capacity for a boat and more than enough power to haul it all. A great family SUV and with it's anti-roll bar, safety is a huge factor. I feel safe in my mountaineer, Why do yu think I bought another one !?It's fun to drive and perfect height for everything.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Mountaineer — Overall I would give the Mountaineer a grade of B. It is an excellent daily driver. I get around 16-17 mpg city maybe a little better, I dont really care. The AWD and heated seats are awesome in the winter. It seats 5 people comfortably and has a large trunk area.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

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
