2006 Mercury Mountaineer Owner Comments

problem #2

Mar 102011

Mountaineer 6 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 87,733 miles


I brought my car into the Ford in Jersey City New Jersey located on Rt 440, because it was leaking fluid not rapidly but it was leaking slowly and because it was jerking. I also had a hard time pressing on the gas as well it was also having a delay while pressing on the gas to take off. The truck came with no warranty I was the 2nd owner bought it from Queens New York major world dealership at 23,182 miles. I took it to Ford on 03/10/20110,got it back on 03/12/2011 2 days later 03/14/2011 I had to bring it back. I was told on 03/12/2011 that the car needed tightening to the radiators fitting, and it also had a an oil drain plug dripping in the break pedal the work cost me $ 473.00. On 03/14/2011 I brought my car back into the dealer ship in the afternoon because I still was experiencing the a delay in the reverse and the jerking , the mechanic came out and said I did notice that but I drained out the oil from the transmission to see if that would fix the problem. I fell this man put my self and my family of 4 in extreme danger. I believe ford in Jersey city New jersey should be looked for mis diagnosing customers vehicle possible causing someone to kill them self or there entire family, thinking their car is fixed and save to drive, when all reality they did not diagnose the car the right way.

problem #1

Mountaineer V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles

I have had the rear trans axle fluid flushed and the engine oil changed and I am still experiencing noticeable hard down shifting during breaking at stop lights and off ramps from highway. I have read that a software flash of the car's computer will correct this problem so I will take the car in for service.
