Fully agree with hsmith1. This LED lamp fault looks like becoming an epidemic, and is a safety concern. I would urge all to contact Ford 1 800 392 3673 +1 +5 to lodge your complaint. Also fill out the complaint form with NHTSA http://www.nhtsa.gov/ Until we push, Ford will not acknowledge ! Update: Well, they acknowledged! Ford replaced the lights at no cost to us.

I just bought my 2010 Mercury Milan. I have wanted this car since I was little. Never thought I would have a opportunity to buy one. I absolutely love it. It is everything I wanted and more. I did my research before buying and it lives up to all the great reviews. I love that I don't see any in my neighborhood or anywhere really. My boyfriend has a Mercury Marauder so as you can see we like cars that aren't seen on a daily basis! Merc Squad haha I would definitely recommend this car! Its beautiful and smooooooth!

I have the 2010 base automatic (there was no option to select this on Edmunds). Bought the car used with 26K miles. Came with a nice sunroof, leather wrapped steering wheel, fog lights, SYNC..etc. It's nice and comfortable to drive. Quiet, great mileage, good power for a 4cyl, very nice cloth seats. I really enjoy this car. Handles well too but if you're looking for a sports sedan, I wouldn't go that far. Just a really nice car in my opinion. A steal for the price used. Feels/looks like a classy ride.

I have always been a Ford man and I loved my Milan Premier until recently. In the last three thousand miles (after it hit 50K miles) I had some kind of solenoid, a tail light, a throttle body, and a battery go bad, all common problems with this car. The one that really killed me was the tail light. Instead of replacing a bulb I had to replace the whole light assembly for $400. What kind of engineering is that? I am so turned off with Ford (and all American engineered cars).

I've had this car for about two years now and it has only needed routine maintenance (aside from some bad gas I filled up with from BP). The exterior is a little bland but has grown on me. It's the interior of the car that sold me and that I still love. The heated leather seats are great in the winter and the Sync system can be a little buggy at times but is usually perfect.

I purchased a 2010 Milan Premier with 15,000 on it . After I purchased it I found out transmission had been rebuilt at 12,000. The car still shift poorly 1st through 5 th gears. Found out later through forums Ford Fusions and Mercury Milans 2010's suffer from bad transmissions.Looking to get rid of car. Would not recommend it.

Purchase our 2010 Milan Premier as an executive car after my Jeep Liberty diesel lost a rod. Still fighting with Chrysler. Overall, the Milan is surprisingly comfortable and quiet on the road. Fuel economy is good getting in the upper 20's commuting and in the low 30's on long trips. Engine power is adequate but lacks the torque of my Jeep (miss that). Engine noise is very subdued while cruising. Have had issues with Sync as the voice commands refused to work. Three visits to the dealer plus a visit from a Ford engineer finally got it fixed (broken wire). Fit and finish good be a bit better as some body panels are not aligned as well as they could be.

Overall, this is a great family car. I traded in my SUV for better MPG. It has a sleek interior (I have the two tone leather) and it is very luxurious. I have the sync system and Sirius XM radio. My car comes with ambient lighting which I think my kids enjoy more than I do. This car is the entire package and I'm sad that 2011 is the last year for Mercury.

Was leaning heavily toward Fusion but went for the Milan because I liked the exterior styling better. I've read the other reviews and it's all subjective, but imo this is a great car. The leather seats are probably the most comfortable bucket seats I've ever sat in, and with 8-way adjustable seats plus tilt and tele steering wheel, there should be a comfy seating position for everyone. The lumbar support helps a lot too. Mpg is good, I get around 28 in combo city-highway driving. Build quality appears good. Very quiet at 70 mph, zero wind noise with the windows up. A little more road noise than I would like, but not a major problem. A few minor gripes (see below) but I'd buy this car again.

I traded down from an F150 SuperCrew Lariat to save money, which I did. Even with a 4-cylinder, it handles well and gets great gas mileage. The driver seat is extremely uncomfortable, causing muscle pain on my commute to work. (one hour each way)In less than two months after purchase, it squeaks and rattles like a 30 year old car instead of a new one. I may be saving money, but I'm really starting to miss my truck.

Bought the V6 all wheel drive for wife. Perfect size for her and bought the Milan instead of the Fusion because Mercury is going out and got $4500 off sticker. Will always get parts for it but did not really think about my resale value since Mercury will be no more.

Car has been flawless during the first 4500 miles. Excellent gas mileage, smooth ride, and very comfortable ride. 4 cyl. and 6 speed transmission provides more than enough power on highway. No creaks, rattles, or any issues at all with this vehicle.

I am giving this car low scores only because after one week the transmission would not shift correctly. i took it back to the dealer and they gave me excuses about why they could not download a program from Ford to test the transmission. After two days they finally decided that the car needed a new transmission. I purchased this car and drove it only 5 days. Now it has been in the shop for 7 days. I do like this car but I feel like its the same old bad Ford service. Before the trouble I would agree with the other positive reviews.

Took delivery of our Milan Premier with 6cyl and FWD. Traded in 2007 Lincoln MKZ. Wanted another Lincoln but base price had increased over $10,000 in 3 yrs. Milan is basically same car but way cheaper and with lots of bells/whistles. Good quality. So far, gets 31 mpg Hwy and 24 city. Voice Sync system is pretty neat but steep learning curve and can be distracting. Got Sirius for 2 years. Lot of car for the price.

I've had my Milan for a month and I love everything about it EXCEPT the location of the temperature controls, which truly create unsafe driving conditions. They are placed too low and are hard to reach. I have to take my eyes off the road too long when I want to change the fan speed or set the defrost, or turn on/off the air conditioner and heater. This is a big enough problem that I would not have purchased the car had I known. Other than that I love the safety features of the car. I have the BLIS and the rear camera and would do both again. I like being able to enter the car by typing in a code - that's a great feature when traveling with others. Head rests are uncomfortable.

We picked up our new Milan about 2 weeks ago. So far things have been just fine. For the past 16 years we have driven Toyotas but we thought it was time for a change. The car has a good ride, much more controlled then the Toyota and feels more sporty. The engine is very quiet and the automatic trans shifts very well. Mileage is about 23.5 so far with mostly suburban driving. So far no squeaks or rattles and the leather seats are very comfortable. The trunk seems to be about the same size of the Camry as well as the rear seat. The Sony sound system is great. The only problem is trying to get our older phone to hook up with the Sync system. The interior lighting is a nice touch.

I traded in a 2000 Lincoln LS for this Milan. The Milan is a great car. It is comfortable, gas mileage is good (27 - 30 mpg) highway. The Sync system is a great value, as is the 202A package, which includes the back-up camera feature and the blind spot light on the side view mirror. These are huge safety features.

Got my Sterling Gray I-4 Premier 012210 after trading my 2008 Mariner Premier. With approx. 1500 miles, all is great. I had a 2005 Mazda6 (the base for this car) before my Mariner and I'm enjoying the same feeling the Mazda had. Great ride/handling with excellent brakes and very quiet. Fuel economy in town is about 24mpg so far. Fit & finish is comparable to imports. Leather is luxury car quality.

So far, at 6 months and 12,000 miles, this car is smooth, very comfortable, and has done well in ice and snow (I added X-Ice snows). It doesn't have the crisp responsive handling of my Subaru, but it's so comfortable you can forgive it for a lot. What I don't like: after 6 months, I still have to look for climate controls. There are a lot of them, they all feel the same, I have to stretch to reach them. Getting the free trial to Sirius radio reupped was a rude surprise. The radio in the car will only accept Sirius most expensive plans. You get a deal, but I would still pay for all the junk I don't want in order to hear the few stations I like. It's a nice car, but next one is a Subaru.

The I4 has plenty of power. Love the two tone leather seats and they are heated.Over all I am quite pleased with the car.

Dependable, comfortable, plenty of room. My advice: You absolutely must get the BLIS blind spot detector and the rear camera. The rear camera is a good idea on any car, but especially this one which has a high back end. Mercury Milan vs Ford Fusion: I looked at them both...the Ford's styling and options seemed more aimed at males under 35..the Mercury towards females over 35. Me - male over 35 - I prefer safety and comfort over sportiness and nice sound systems. Also the Lincoln-Mercury salesman was older and less aggressive than the Ford guy - they seem to be accustomed to dealing with a different demographic.

Traded from 2000 Sable after a great 160,000+ miles. Dealer said this was the replacement for the Sable. Needed car with dual power seats due to wife's back condition. Had to get SYNC to get power seats. Car appears to be designed around "entertainment system." There are 3 different ways to adjust the volume of the system but it is impossible to operate any of the dash controls with winter gloves on. And forget completely about the steering wheel controls, they are way to small to use. However they are really easy to press accidentally while turning the wheel. The seats are narrow and the headrests protrude such that I will have to cut them off and move them back with spacers. Not worth $28K

Love my Milan

I looked everywhere for a cash for clunker deal...tried every car on the market & was very disappointed until I pulled onto the Lincoln/Mercury lot. One look at my Milan & I was hooked. The Sync entertainment system is the best on the market. One complaint: The headrests on the front seats were so bad, I almost couldn't buy the car. Headaches and back pain from the unnatural, extremely awkward head position...picture head jutting forward, with the back curled clam shell-like...not a good look on me. After taking the car to the upholsterers to see if he could stuff the seats, he fixed the problem by bending the head rests up & "Millie Pearl" & I drove home a happy duo!

This is my third Milan, having previously leased a 2006 and 2008 version. It put 100,000 absolutely trouble-free miles on the first two. The only service they needed were regular oil changes and tire rotations. My 2010 is FWD (NOT AWD) and benefits from the extra 20 HP and the selectable transmission. I was very happy with the previous models but the 2010 has numerous improvements and refinements - quite impressed that Ford is doing this instead of their former practice of making it cheaper (i.e., deleting content) every year. These are great cars - the Milan? Fusion - and I can recommend them w/o reservation.

Just a few weeks old but I love it.

I just purchased a 2010 Mercury Milan Primier V6 with front wheel drive and couldn't be happier! I selected tuxedo black with a camel interior, which I feel not only is a classic color combination, but also brightens the interior. The car is loaded with every option except navigation, which I declined, having just received a GPS for Christmas. I traded a 1996 Mustang GT, desiring a more refined ride, while at the same time, not wanting to give up performance and handling. While I realize comparing a Mustang to a Milan may be like apples to oranges, the former being rear drive and the latter front, the Milan's handling does NOT disappoint! In addition, the Milan's ride is so serene!

I've always been a Chevy man, but after they took bailouts from us, I decided to go with the only American manufacturer that didn't take our money. So, looking for a car I decided to try the Merc Milan. I still compared it to the Chevy Malibu, but the Milan was nicer. Plus, the Mercury dealerships are so much more professional than most others. They actually let me take a Milan out and try it for part of a day. I thought it was a great car for the money; it now in my garage.Especially surprising is the city gas mileage. So far, in town only, I'm getting over 24 mpg.

I recently purchased the V6 Premier Sedan and it is amazing! I couldn't be more happier. Prior to this, I had the 2006 Milan and was very happy with that. What a reliable car! I live (Jersey City) and work (Hoboken) in the NYC metro and am on the road for most my time. I know traffic! And this is the car to be in when you are in bumper to bumper traffic! The sound system is amazing and the seats are so comfortable! This car will definitely win some awards. It just snowed a foot here and the Milan was amazing in the snow (AWD)!

Have owned 2 Honda Accords in the last decade. Both were very reliable. Test drove Sonata, Fusion and Milan. All were nice quiet ride. The Fusion and Milan had the better combination of ride and comfort. I opted for the Milan because it had the best combination of options that I was looking for. The 2.5 liter engine matched with the 6 speed automatic works well. I have put on over 1000 miles in the first week. Mileage was acceptable at 29.6 mpg. Interstate driving at 65-80 mph with AC on for a majority of the trip. Because of time constraints I was unable to get Sync functional, but am looking forward to it. Overall a very nice car. Hope initial quality continues.

I traded in my 2005 BMW 3 series and the Milan is a much better ride. My biggest reason for test driving the Milan was because of its top reliability from Consumer Reports. I still cannot believe all the pluses that I did not expect. Most people think I paid over $30K. I paid $23K. The Milan's less power than my BMW took some getting used to, but I chose the 4 cyl. because I wanted better gas mileage. Go with a 6 cyl. if that matters to you. The drive is smooth and the storage is huge. The test drive was better than the Camry and Accord with alot more features. The Altima was a sportier ride but Consumer Reports said its reliability was only average.

Milan Very Impressed!

Have had the car for about 2 weeks after a couple of months of extensive research. I must say that I have zero regrets and I am extremely satisfied with my decision. The value I am getting from this car is great as it has extremely solid build and material quality and it is extremely fun to drive. It is extremely spacious and comfortable in the inside, and trunk space is great. I have had an Audi A4 followed by a Toyota Avalon in the past. Glad to go back to the mid-size as the Avalon was extremely not fun to drive. All in all, I definitely feel that I am in a MUCH MORE expensive car.

Just got started a couple of weeks ago with my I-4 Premier Milan, but it is wonderful! The new car quality reports are not wrong. This is a well-built car with tons of features. I bought a "loaded" models with NAV and backup camera. I love it. It feels solid, strong and responsive. There's a touch of engine noise, but to my ears, it's a nice throttle growl not a straining sound. With the radio going it's hardly noticeable, and does not impede conversation at all. After the "Cash for Clunkers" program, it took a long time to get this car, but I am glad I waited. The color is Smokestone, and it is beautiful. I am a very proud and happy owner.

Good car

Afer driving this highly satisfying Tuxedo Black vehicle for the past month, I am , firmly convinced that it is among the greatest cars I've ever driven. The V6 engine with optional AWD has plenty of power for my daily driving conditions and can pass slow- moving Toyota Priuses with ease. On top of it all, the vehicle's exterior is quite eye-catching; especially after I purchased chrome Milan VOGA appliques, badges, and grille to replace the satin-aluminum accents (which were beautiful as well). The interior is the standard, charocal black. It handles well on both the city and the highway. With all of the added options, I feel like I'm driving a car that rivals most luxury brands.

Quality is back into American cars!

Always a die-hard Japanese car owner until now. Bought the car based on all the good hype it's cousins, the Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKS are getting. This car is amazing. Came with every option imaginable. Everyone taken for a ride is astonished by all the electronic gadgetry. Owned for three weeks and getting 29mpg combo city/hwy so far. Impressed with the peppy 4 cyl and acceleration. The ride is superb and glides over bumps compared to my previous Japanese cars. Cornering is good, too. Steering has a bit too much play, but acceptable. Hey, Guys...Give American cars a chance again! You will be pleasantly surprised.

Nice Car

Really like the leather interior and Sync feature. Got the 202a rapid spec and love the backup camera. Traded in a V6 and was a little worried about pick-up/power - but I am quite satisfied with that. Overall very nice car.

Milan is better than Accord and Camry

This is my 2nd Milan Premier (the previous being a V6). I opted for the I4 and am extremely impressed with the 175 HP. This is a great car for the money. I test drove Accord and Camry. America, we have a winner. This car is extremely well appointed. The Tuxedo Black Metallic paint is paired with the standard Camel leather interior. I love the 9 speaker Sony sound system. The MicroSoft Sync is awesome. I am able to listed to my music via an Ipod or thumbdrive (via the USB port). The Milan is very driver friendly.

great car

This is a v6 fwd - not awd. Performance far exceeded expectations. Sync system is very good - hands free phone, and I have a cheap phone. Works with any bluetooth. Very quiet ride, and great stereo. I have auto climate, and fancy sony sound system. Driving in the city (Austin)stop and go at 100 degrees, AC working great - best I've ever had. Manuel shift mode is fun - but harder on mileage than auto. This car begs to accelerate too. Too new for accurate mileage numbers. Have not taken highway trip yet.

Exceeded My Expectations

I am extremely impressed with the 2010 Milan 6cycl. The exterior is sharp and the leather seats are as comfortable as sitting in your favorite sofa at home. Acceration is peppy and the brakes and steering are solid. I love the Synch feature - much easier to program and use than the one on my Mazda. My biggest complaint is regarding the size of the buttons on the center console for the radio and A/C - they are too small and too far for easy reach. I have gotten around 25mph on the highway (around 75mph on flat terrain) and around 20 in city driving. This may increase as the engine breaks in better (have around 1,000 miles so far).

Nice Midsize Sedan

I have been impressed with my purchase of my Milan Premier with the 202a package. It has a dueretic engine that gives the 4 cylinder a boost. The reason I gave it a 9 in performance is due to the noise on a harder accelleration. Build quality I gave a 9 only because fingerprints are more noticeable due to their finish on the dash area. The sound system is top notch and I love the video camera for backing up as well as the blind spot indicator in the sideview mirror. Unless it is extremely windy the ride is quiet. Fun to drive I really could not rate. I have mainly driven in city and have had 27 mpg so far. I'm not a lead foot. I am extremely pleased with my purchase.
