Quarter Of A Million Miles....

My partner and I purchased our 1998 Mercury Mountaineer in 2005, used with 118,000 on it. At the time it was in GREAT shape, and still is. It was bought for my partner to use for work, installing cable TV around Houston. It’s held up GREAT. It most definitely had a “second life” with us. We have more than doubled it in just 5 years. It’s no longer a “work” truck, but my daily grocery getter. It’s now got 267,000 on it and still runs smooth. We keep all of our own maintenance and probably will for the rest of its “life”. I plan on turning this truck into my project car. I love my 5.0L and my Mountaineer. I wouldn’t trade it for a new Mercedes or BMW.
