This is my third Exploer / Mountaineer and the new suspension is not an improvement over the previous. The ride is too stiff. You will feel every bump, pothole and defect in the road. If you only go the the corner grocery, the truck is fine. Any trips longer than 15- 20 minutes, look elsewhere for transportation. This Mountaineeer stays parked in the Driveway. I am now driving my 12 year old pickup daily.
Great full size SUV

Rides very well and has many nice features that newer cars have cut. I get about 21 MPG on mix of city and some rural driving, not too bad. The 4L engine is adequate, but noticeable difference to my previous big engine Mountaineer. Overall I am happy with it.

The car has excellent comfort, power & gas milleage. I am averaging over 26 mpg. The V6 is very powerful & performs well. The leather seats are very comfortable. The controls except for the headlight switch are excellent. The headlight switch is in a area that my knee (I am long legged) has a tendency to hit it. My Ford Freestar Van was the same way. I would highly recomend this vehicle to anyone looking for smaller comfortable SUV.
