Pros

Model Highlights

As in 2009, there are two levels of trim for the Mountaineer, Base and Premier. Both come standard with a 4.0-liter V6 engine that makes 210 hp as well as a 5-speed automatic transmission, and front-wheel drive, though all-wheel drive is an option for both models. The Premier package adds an optional 4.6-liter V8 engine good for 292 hp with a 6-speed automatic transmission.

The Premier edition also adds a third row of seats standard, upping the seating to seven, but with that package come optional second-row captain's chairs, for a total of six seats. In both versions, the rear seats fold flat for additional cargo space.

Both the Premier and Base models have a standard Class II trailer towing hitch, but they can be upgraded with the Trailer Tow Package to include a Class III/IV hitch, 4-pin and 7-pin connectors, trailer sway bar, and 3.73 non-limited slip differential with the V6 engine.

Mercury prides itself on the Mountaineer's 5-star safety ratings. The SUV has 4-wheel ABS with electronic brake-force distribution, front side-mounted airbags, front and rear side curtain airbags, safety canopy, roll stability control, tire pressure monitoring and a post-crash safety system, all standard.

Inside, the Mountaineer has standard niceties like 6-way power adjustable driver's seat, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, leather-trimmed console cruise control power heated exterior mirrors, and air conditioning. The Base model can add a third row of seats, a power front passenger seat, heated front seats, a moonroof, and Microsoft's SYNC multimedia system for audio and phone control.

SYNC is standard on the Premier edition, as are 18-inch wheels, dual-zone climate control, satellite radio and leather upholstery. Upgrades include a navigation system, 20-inch wheels and a rear-seat entertainment system with pull-down screen.

Reverse park sensors, a power moonroof, rear climate control, power adjustable pedals and remote start are all optional. Mercury offers several of these options in packages, such as the Sun and SYNC Package or the Comfort Package.


Model News

The Mercury Mountaineer remains unchanged for 2010, after a few upgrades to styling and safety in 2009, including standard side curtain airbags.


Value Writeup

As a sister model to the Ford Explorer, the 5-passenger Mountaineer has space and towing capacity to spare. The difference is in off-road capability and overall comfort. The Mountaineer is not intended to take on the rough stuff; rather, it has been tuned for city and highway driving, with upgrades to creature comforts inside, a more refined exterior appearance, and a starting price under $30,000.

Summary
FORD IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2010 FUSION, EXPLORER, EXPLORER SPORT TRAC, AND MERCURY MILAN AND MOUNTAINEER VEHICLES MANUFACTURED BETWEEN DECEMBER 15, 2009 THROUGH FEBRUARY 3, 2010 EQUIPPED WITH FRONT SEAT MANUAL RECLINERS. THESE VEHICLES FAIL TO COMPLY WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 202, HEAD RESTRAINT. THE RECLINER GEAR PLATE TEETH MAY BE OUT OF DIMENSION SPECIFICATION WHICH COULD RESULT IN LIMITED PAWL TO GEAR PLATE TOOTH ENGAGEMENT.

Consequence
IN THE EVENT OF A CRASH, THE SEATBACK AND HEAD RESTRAINT MAY MOVE REARWARD, INCREASING THE RISK OF INJURY.

DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE MANUAL RECLINERS FOR BOTH POWER AND MANUAL SEATS FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR BEFORE APRIL 30, 2010. OWNERS MAY CONTACT FORD AT 1-866-436-7332.

OWNERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV .

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
