Hey everyone, i just joined this forums and i find it very informative.
I just bought a (new to me) 2002 Mercury Mountaineer. And I would like to know what types of problems are common in this vehicle, or what problems you've experienced with it. If you havent had any major problems let me know what you like about it.
My 2002 mountaineer has 54,000 miles on it, it is a v8 with the 4.6 engine. I am liking it very much, it drives a lot better than what I used to have before, however I am averaging about 14 mpg in city miles. Is this about average for this mountaineer? The mpg arent really a problem because I'm used to that. Anywho, the only thing that doesn't have me very happy is the acceleration on the vehicle. I don't think it accelerates as nicely as it should, like it feels like it should have more power than it does. Does anyone else feel the same way about their mountaineer?
