I recently bought this car used and it only had 78000 miles on it.So far it has been a real good car,it's roomy and very comfortable inside,no road noise whatsoever and the engine has plenty of power to suit me with good gas mileage.

It is a good car. Really like it

189000 Miles couple brake jobs, 3 sets of tires,1 power steering rack ,and a motor mount. She is still going strong well worth the money . We are looking to replace her but will keep her for a backup wont get anything on a trade anyway. I will buy Ford seams like the best bang for your buck have an 06 f150 with 115000 Mi will keep it for another 70000 at least.

When I first purchased this car I was initially impressed. It was very comfortable to drive with the seating and easy to get in and out of the car with lots of trunk space. Unfortunately, then the problems started to surface. The paint began to peel off the leading edge of my aluminum hood, the drivers side window goes down when you press the up button, the rear drums are rusting prematurely, and the module that controls my AWD shorted out my control panel! The dealer quoted me $1900 to replace the module and keep my AWD! My first and probably last experience with the Ford brand. BTW, my car has not even reached 100,000 miles. Update7-9-16: On top of losing a couple of the cars best features, this winter my heated seats stopped working and now my a/c needs repair. I also have a groaning noise in the front end that I have not even begun to investigate. To sum up this experience, If you are going to buy a new Ford to drive for a few years, it's probably a good option, if you are looking for a long term commitment, look elsewhere.

I recently bought a 2006 Mercury Montego. I am a senior lady and was on my own as far as finding a car and doing my own research. I used this website often. I drove 8 cars. The Mercury was the first car I drove and after considering all the others, it is the car I bought. I am no expert, but I do know quality and recognize performance in cars. This car is a lovely car. Good looking, big comfy interior, a heavy weight which drives and feels good. Corners great. You could live in the trunk. On the downside, undersized engine and some peculiar gadget arrangements inside. But overall, a wonderful buy. If you find one with low miles, buy it.

Despite the fact that the original dealer went belly-up last year, we still love our Montego. It's by far the most comfortable vehicle we've ever had - or will have. It has been totally problem free except for a recall to replace the rear disk brakes at no cost to us. We're really saddened to see the Mercury brand go away and would love to find another vehicle that has the tremendously comfortable seating of the Montego.

Just got this recently and I love it. I've always liked large "dad cars," and this car is a monster! Its design is subtle, and probably bland to most, but I love how elegant it looks. It's a deceptively powerful car that accelerates and handles like a dream. Could use a little more power, though. It's roomy, which is great for my lankier build. Tons of trunk/passenger space. It's mechanically sound and has a great factory sound system. The fuel economy is right around 20/28 for me, which is very good for a huge V6 vehicle. Overall, this car is a sleeper hit. It's comfortable and efficient, but won't appeal to fans of smaller vehicles that preach about fuel economy.

Wonderful

I was looking for a bigger car, really an SUV, but when I started looking I realized I couldn't afford it. So I saw the Montego and at first I was unsure but after I drove it and tested it to the max it's wonderful, great on gas, roomy, and of course with the leather it's perfect. It rides smooth and quite comfortable I must say. So if you are looking for a car the Montego is a great way to go.

I switched from GM products to Ford products way back in the 80's when I had to work on different cars. I had a 2001 Sable and wanted a car with warranty for my wife. This car blows me away. The AC controls that allow balance side to side or front to rear, the auto seat setting that sets per which remote control is used, the backup sensors, the big mirrors make backing up a pleasure, the radio that adjust sound level to speed, the fold down back and front passenger seat that allows long packages, the message center that tells all about the car, the steering wheel controls for cruise and radio, plus the 5 star safety rating...plus buying it used, what a deal and I got 100K of warranty!

I was looking for a replacement for my reliable 2000 Mercury Sable LS with 225,000 and saw this car on the the net. The car had 6000 miles on it and was like new,from a Lincoln Mercury dealer, in Mertlot with a tan interior. The car other than the rear brakes replaced under the TSB there have no service other than maintenance. This car has been a joy to own and on long drives. This car is the best secret in the auto business with great features, great gas mileage 32-38 mpg expressway and 22-25 city drivung with an average of 27 mpg overall and great comfort. The car is in made in Chicago with great fit and finish.

Great interior. Very roomy for a car this size, needs a more powerful engine, great paint quality. I got sideswiped, dented the quarter panel pretty substantiallly but never broke the paint, needs a longer warrenty to compete, alternator went at 41,000 -- $500 ouch! 27 MPG (that will work)

I changed the tires immediately, they were a bad ride. The motor is a bit loud in 1st first gear. I said the car hesitates when going into 2nd gear, but the dealer shot me down. The rear brakes drag when left overnight, there is a TSB so the dealer put new rear brakes and turned the rear rotors. The car is good on longer trips.The exterior mirrors are good in day driving, but I seem to have my vision on the left blocked and a glare. My wife likes the high drive visibility. Needs some more power when leaving from a light. I had a Mercury before this one and it lasted me 18 years, why fool with success.

My problem has to do with the rain, water and leafs, pine needles, sand, anything that touches the windows goes into the door. The seal that is normally against the window in most cars, making it waterproof is not present on the Montego, in fact in discussing this with the few people that I was allowed to talk to at Mercury it was noticed that all of their cars except one, is now built this way. The seal that does touch the window is too far down, what doesn't go into the door with normal wind or vibration of the car goes into the door when the window is lowered. My car is not garage kept, I have mulch that is falling out of the bottom of the door, until it plugs up. Then what ice, rust....

Can't beat it.

This is our stealth car. You really hardly notice it, not a flashy spot on it (except the headlights). But if you want Comfort, driving Ease, Plenty of Room, and a Quiet Ride, the Mercury Montego is Fantastic! Unbeatable! Quieter than our friend's Jaguar - by far. And amazingly easy to park, although it is not necessarily a Long car, just Big. We added the heated seats and we love them. Standard sound system is OK, but most people will probably want the upgrade. Drive one. Check out the view. Ours is Satellite Silver, very nice.

Comfortable to drive and ride in. Lots of room for luggage and passengers. A really good car for everyone seeking safety, economy, comfort and dependability. I have owned several town cars and this car is equal or better than the town car. The size is perfect for driving and parking in heavy traffic and mall parking lots. I can not understand why mercury has not promoted this car the way it deserves. I will recommend this car to anyone.

The Mercury Montego is a great family sedan with loads of interior and trunk space. The elevated seating is a very nice feature which is not only comfortable but allows easy entrance and exit from the vehicle. The instrument panel is attractive and functional, and the leather seats have a nice look to them. After the first 13000 miles, we have yet to experience our first problem of any kind. The ride is very comfortable and the handling is very controlled. Mileage seems to be about what they claim for the car which is 21/29mpg. Performance is sufficient for a car this size unless you really need to be the first away from every light. Overall....a great car.

Montego is a Large comfortable car

I bought the Montego Premier as a replacement for the Mercury Sable. The Montego is a larger car with a better interior and better ride. The engine is not a powerhouse but is adquate. On interstate driving, the mpg is around 26. Overall, I am pleased with the overall performance of the Montego and it is an improvemnet over the Sable.

First off I work where they build the Merc. That said, this is not an ad to sell more but my real opinion of this car. It is what it is, a well built economical. (read really good milage for a big car)It isn't a hot rod but you're there at the next stop light with the rest. I see over 17 mpg in town driving and 28 and change on the road with three and a half folks inside and stuff in the trunk. I never have to ask; Hey you got enough room back there?, there's plenty, even the Shack might not complain. If you like more power it's coming soon in '08 from what I read. I drove out through the mountains of CO. and did it without strain. Try one. Ok I do work there:)

Since all of the test drives were done in the daytime, we didn't realize that there were no daytime driving lights until after the final deal. I like DTDLs especially for overcast and rainy days. I like to be seen. The interior is great except that there is no automatic unlock feature when you put the car in park. I did notice this before but thought it was minor. My mistake, very inconvenient. Did have the emissions light come on during a trip, took it to a Ford garage but they couldn't look at it for about 4 days. Couldn't even tell me if it was OK to drive. Very poor customer service IMO. As it turned out the gasket on the gas cap was bad. Don't like the gas cap design. Hard to use.

Having owned 7 Mercurys in the past 18 years I am impressed by the constant quality and reliability of the marque. The 2006 Montego, although not an impressive looking style, is right up there with most vehicles in its class. The comfort is absolutely superb for both driver and passengers. The roominess is superior to most cars, even those costing thousands more. Tall seating is almost as good as most SUVs.

I took delivery of my Montego in October 2005. While my wife and I love the car the quality is not there. Since October the car has had struts replaced, ABS repaired other things that dealer cant find, Main issue is that the Main airbag warning light has come on 4 times and Ford is unable to fix. They have replaced the OCM module and yet the problem still exists. Now they will be replacing the sensor under the seat. Won't be keeping the car as we are not sure of the reliability of the vehicle.

We purchased the Montego for our second home in Florida. This is the first American car for us in many years - we expect better than average in every aspect. The comfort and versatility of this car are tough to match anywhere near the <$22k that we paid. It delivers loads of space, very comfortable leather seats, a factory incentive, and 24 mpg average in mixed driving. We are happy and impressed.

The Montego we own has such a spacious interior both front and back seats. We also like the fact that it is a little higher than most cars for head room and from the ground. The name of this car should be Comfort. The only negative we have found in the 2-3 months we have owned it is that when you accelerate it is a little noisy. That is saying a lot if that is the only negative we have found so far.

An exceptional vehicle. Ride, handling, interior room, CVT + AWD, fuel economy, build fit and finish have all exceeded my expectations. Wrap it up in a car that has the best safety rating of any American car, and you quickly understand that this is a wonderful vehicle that represents the best possible car/suv combo out there today, all for much less than my 06 RX330. It feels good to be able to buy American again. Bravo Mercury for a job well done!!!!

If you're not hung up on luxury car brand names then the Montego is a great alternative care choice. Roomy, solid feeling ride, good looking (although not in the class of some of the luxury brands), great cabin layout, pretty good stereo system, acceptable accelaration. Lots of bang for the buck! I get a lot of looks when I'm driving this car. I got it in the Merlot color. I switched from a 2003 Acura TL to the Montego. I considered the Avalon, the Azera, the ES330 and the TL, but decided to instead pocket the extra $3,000 to $6,000 those cars would have cost. I just rolled past 1,000 miles and I haven't regretted my choice.

About 2 weeks ago i bought a Mercury Montego Luxury AWD i am very happy with my car it has many features that a Lexus ES 330 didn't even have and at about $7,000 dollars cheaper i like the way the car handles and rides its very smooth and quiet and acceleration is good but should be a little bit more powerful due to the cars size i am also glad the Montego has command seating which gives you a much better view of the road and the big side mirrors make it easy for getting in and out of tights spaces and so does the Parking Asst. and i like the black leather interior and the nice Silver Birch Paint Color and in my opinion this car should put Mercury back on track because it ia a wonderful car.

Just got my Montego a month ago. Nice family car, lots of room for the kids. While people have complained about the acceleration I think it is adequate however the CVT gives you the impression the car is not accelerating. Interior is very comfortable for a 6' driver. The perforated leather is a little cheesy. Drives and handles nicely and the Merlot color turns heads, nobody even knows what kind of car it is.

The Montego is a decent car with a few exceptions. My main complaint is the area where you would rest your left foot is awkward as the wheel well comes in at that area and makes long drives very uncomfortable due to the restricted area for your left foot. My second complaint is the seats should be wider & the console narrower. The width of the seats is very restrictive. The seats could be padded a bit better as well. The CVT transmission is great & smooth, the engine lacks acceleration but is ok under normal driving. My Montego averages about 20-21 MPG which is lower than the specs state but still good. I'm not sure of the aluminum block for long life.Radio is real cheep sounding.

A layperson's assessment of the 2006 Mercury Montego Premier AWD. I was looking for a replacement for a 1999 Continental; felt the Montego came the closest and I'm not disappointed. CVT transmission very smooth and satisfactory for passing. General driving --26.9 MPG after 2011 miles.

the montego has enough power for me. a bigger engine would be good for power buffs, but this vehicle will get up and scat pretty darn good. the only thing i wish it would have would be the power seat on the passenger side to adjust up and down. otherwise the seats are good. i love the height of the seats in the car, great visabilty. the car handles very ggod on wet pavement . on dry it has a tendency for a little understeer. my friend has the cvt with awd and it is fantastic. the volvo haldex system is probably the best on the market today and am glad that ford is using it on the 500 and the montego. to sum this up, a great car for the ride and price, roomy nad comfortable.

Great Car!!!!

This is a great car. It just was ranked the safest large sedan and feels safe when you drive it. This safety allows a sense of confidence to overcome a driver min inclement weather. The Montego is also fun to drive. It has very good acceleration and turns well. The best feature of the car is how comfortable it is to drive. It is a great car and I highly recommend it.

Very good vehicle but.....

Car gets great comments on the looks. Interior and trunk is very spacious and well laid out. The driving view from all sides is good. smooth ride. The transmission and engine output needs work.

Ford has come a long way in producing a quality vehicle, owned this mercury from March 2005 never had any problems with it, put almost 17,000 miles on it until I got rid of it November 2005. This was/is HUGE car, lots and lots of room, great features and content. However, the darned thing just could not get out of its own way. Ford made a drastic mistake with the powerplant, it's a shame because otherwise a great vehicle!!!

Delighted to be driving a Montego again

Looks great, many compliments on style and appearance. Drives and handles great, short turning radius, positive steering. 'Sit tall' front seats with excellent visibility. Extra roomy back seat and trunk (two couples or family with luggage should be able to travel together. Neat hooks in trunk to hold grocery bags upright. Side doors close quietly. Audio seat belt reminder.

Excellent car. A lot of car for the money. Performs well, quiet and handle well. Kind of wild design. AWD is an excellent feature if you live in a cold climate.

Great Car for the money

I looked around a lot. Was looking at the 300C. Not worth the $12,000 extra for the hemi. This has been a fun car to drive. It's really well put together and handles great.

Most problem is the reading the speedometer in the daylight, I believe they should have reversed the contrasts. Night is ok. The steering adjustment is awkward compared to the Lincon Town Car I had. It was a pleasure to drive.. The Montedgo rides fairly well and is comfortable. The side mirrors are difficult for my to see out of as they are very large and she is smaller than I even with the seat adjust, it does not help her. If they would correct the intrument lighting in day time I would be satisfied

A Very fine automobile

The rear-warnng beeper saved a child's life. I was parked, nothing apparently behind. Shifted into reverse and got warning signal. Parents had allowed small child to walk ahead, and behind my Montego. I stopped, shifted to neutral, got out of car, and saw 2 to 3 yr old behind car. After telling parents of their stupidity, I thanked God that I had purchased this car.

new car

we found the interior more attractive and of better quality than the Ford 500, Somewhat sporty drive with "firm" suspension. Mercury Salesmen are better informed about the car & had better choices. In the past, we have found the Mercury service departments to be very good. Price was comparable to "500" and good in this period of "employee type" discounts. better trunk space & controls than our "Avalon"

Best front wheel drive

The montego is the best front wheel drive I have ever driven. It also has one of the best road visbilities, you have a very good front view of the road.The montego is just fun to drive.
