Look At All The Power Buttons And Extras... — This was great when going to ball games for my kids but they are grown so time for something smaller. Sunroof for fresh breeze in your hair, DVD player to keep those kids entertained on those long trips, and the on board navigation when you get lost on those long trips. You can seat 7 with ease or with a push of the button those extra seats just fold down!!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Amanda, The Mountaineer — I liked everything about this car except the gas mileage. Nice looks, good family car. I have 2 kids and I have the perfect amount of room for everything: Sports, groceries, pets and kids, knee room, and enough upholders for everybody. There are 5 cupholders in my car.

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

Very Happy By Angie1930

Owned since 2004, it has always been the car of choice when the terrain or snow was a challenge the v8 engine can haul most anything you put behind it with its factory installed tow package :) Good C... 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

Would Not Buy Another. By tennisshoes

I really liked the interior room and the lay out, and the power that the 5.0 produced but the mileage suffered. Needed a better transfer case design, front differential needs to be a little bit beefe... Read More

I Have Owned Many Suvs, This Was My Favorite, Hands Down! By rosewolf8440

Overall, I enjoy the majority of aspects of this vehicle. Cargo capacity and plenty of room, no blind spots, low-maintenance, and enjoyable drive. Again, the only negative is moderately low gas mileag... Read More
