Information about Dealer

Good sales team, poor service department

Customer Service: 2.0 Quality Of Work: 1.0 Friendliness: 4.0 Pricing: 1.0 Overall Experience: 1.0

Thought I was getting a great used vehicle! The sales consultant, Danny Armidon , walked me through their process of vehicle inspection for used, non-certified pre-owned vehicles. He stated that they had a 180 and some point inspection. If this had been true, I would not be having the issues I am currently having with the truck. My problem is not with the sales department. It is with the service department. Every time I bring my vehicle in there, some thing else crops up. Let me give you an example. I took my vehicle in there because it told me to service the charging system. This was 2 days after purchase. The technician told us not to worry about it because the alternator had not gotten the battery up to voltage. This was clearly untrue, but I could not get the department to work on it. I had to have it diagnosed by Firestone (which I paid for out of my pocket and the dealership will not reimburse) just for Jim Clark to admit that the alternator was bad and replace it (which they did free of charge). The starter also went out on the vehicle a week after we bought it. One of the seats that was supposed to fold down wouldn't. The door handle on the vehicle fell off. The air ride compressor died. The driver's side seat won't move, even though the service department diagnosed the problem and made me pay for a motor for it. The truck is currently sitting in my driveway, not able to start, making the clicking noises like the starter went out on it (after Jim Clark supposedly replaced it a couple of months ago.) The turn signal sometimes doesn't make the clicking sound when I turn it on (which I believe points to bigger problems), but the dealership won't even look at that. There was also water dripping from the information center at the top of the truck, but again, that's not an issue either. I have had this vehicle for about 4 months and it has been in the shop to be worked on 10 times. Tell me again about the inspection they do on all used vehicles? The service department can't seem to find the issue with the driver's seat not working, why trust them with anything else? The one bright spot there is Sherry, who sets up our appointments. She is bright and cheerful despite being clearly overwhelmed with work. Of course, if people are taking their cars back for the same issue over and over and over again, then that would explain why she's so busy. Jim Clark is friendly and a good place to buy a NEW vehicle (where the lemon laws protect you - and as long as you have a different dealership to take your vehicle to for maintenance). But I would never recommend anyone to get a USED vehicle there. Their service department is just too incompetent. I will be looking for somewhere else to take my lemon of a vehicle to get it fixed.

My all wheel drive 2008 Mountaineer with the chrome package and tow package is great I have absolutely no complaints very little repairs and handles well but very difficult to drive in the city and get over 7 miles a gallon highway mileage is better but I'm glad gas at the moment is down to two to $3 a gallon!!

Oh my god how could a car be so bad. Bought used in early 2011 with 34,000 miles around 65,000 miles it was leaking transmission fluid everywhere took it the best transmission mechanic in the area they sucked they charged us 3 grand for a rebuilt transmission.at 75,000 the trans started clunking when down shifting it was bad then the check engine light and a wrench (which means power train malfunction came on took it back it needs a new solenoid pack it was there for over a month not exaggerating a month took it home it did the same thing took it back and the solenoid was defective then replaced a rod in there too.In 2014 we traded for a beautiful Subaru Tribeca.

My third mountaineer and it's a lemon!

Does Ford Motor Co care about losing a loyal customer?In my case the answer is no, not at all.I leased a 2008 Mercury Mountaineer 11/07,our third one.It was fine until 4/09 when it didn't start one day.Then it began to happen more frequently.My family ha been stranded countless times due to this problem. After several attempts at Ford Lincoln Mercury dealerships to fix the problem it still exists.The alternator,starter bad relay and battery have all been replaced yet several times a week I am left stranded somewhere with this defective vehicle that won't start.I have been in communication with the Ford Cust. Solutions team through two courses of repairs,a Special Ford Engineer was even sent

Love the SUV, but poor interior quality

We love the room, the ride, the v8 power, the appearance, and we know from the past that we will love the AWD. The MPG is acceptable for an AWD mid-size SUV. We test drove the vehicle on a bright sunny day 98 F and heard no rattles or noises, but took delivery in the evening after sundown, temp 71F. On the way home the upper console started making an annoying noise when we hit seams in the road. We made 2 visits to fix the problem. Another Mountaineer that hadn't been prepped did the same thing, as did the 08 Explorer Rental. Service manager said that if more than 2 do the same, then Ford would say they're built that way. Excuse me? Dealer put foam in that area. Problem solved for now?

This is my third Mountaineer (had a 2002 & 2005). They keep getting better. Fuel economy not a factor due to my low mileage - comfort, safety, traction in the snow, room to transport items and style, these are what counts to me and the Mountaineer is a 10 in all respects. Large lease discount from Ford makes this vehicle a great deal.

No other SUV comes close to Mountaineer

This is a great SUV. Mercury really put their effort and time in this vehicle. All the details are very thought out and has a very stylish exterior and interior. It is very spacious and will fit any large family with up to 7. I really like how nice the ride is and is very comfortable. We were looking at other vehicles to consider, but we made a very smart choice and got this. This is a perfect SUV for a single person or a family of 7. And the V8 engine is very powerful and its just an overall awesome vehicle to own.
