Used Mercury in Dulles, VA
Reviews for Mercury
Very Good Value!
I owned this specific car (6PJJ 743) and drove it on three round-trips to eastern Tennessee. It eats up the miles effortlessly and will cruise all day at 70 MPH with no strain and returns very good fuel economy considering its' size and the huge amount of belongings I carried. The after-market dual exhaust system that I added helps the fuel economy. It actually feels like a smaller car in city driving and maneuvers into parking spaces easily. Dollar for dollar, it is a very good value. The reason I sold this car is that I own another Grand Marquis and did not need this one
I've purchased a 2005 Mountaineer after running a 1996 Explorer to the ground. I've driven on many other vehicles from many trips and was surprised about how nice the Mountaineer drives. It's loaded with many neat features like sensor to warn what you're backing into and a 6 CD changer. The AWD was great in the blizzard of 2010. My Honda Minivan is a great family vehicle but the Mountaineer is what the family hops into when we want to go for a fun drive. The only gripe is the gas mileage - it is as bad as the 96 Explorer.
2001 Mercury Mtneer
This is a very satisfying SUV except for the typical-of-the-class issue of less-than-great gas mileage (15-19, city-Hwy). I previously had a 1999 Eddie Bauer Explorer that also had V8 with fulltime AWD. I love the power and FTAWD but the suspension on this Mountaneer is so much more comfortable than that of the explorer. Yeah, it still feels like a truck but it's comfortable enough that I'm considering selling my car and driving it all the time. BTW, I purposely bought a model with cloth interior because I'm not crazy about leather and frankly, at least in cloth the seats on this model are more comfortable than those in the newer body style 2002-06.
