Avoid Milan & Fusion with 5-speed Automatic Transmission

This car looks great, drive decently, but it has a major problem: the Mazda built 5 speed automatic transmissions. This transmission seems to have a shorter life span than most modern transmission. Mine started to go at around 80k and completely shut down at 95k. It is a seal system that cannot be serviced, and it is expensive to rebuild. Even the used ones cost twice as much as any other used transmission. This along should be a good reason to avoid Milan and Fusion models with this part, and perhaps all Milan and Fusion.

2008 Milan...must have been 1st run modle or something, everything that could go wrong has. I drive highway miles back and forth to work, consider myself close to average to slightly above avg on how hard I drive a car (and take care of it!). After approx 68k miles, transmission goes out. Took to Ford dealer, they want $6,700 for reman transmission. Unreal, had to go with used transmission due to cost. Have had 2 interior items fail, and need replaced. (console tab and short in power outlet) Now, engine rods knocking?! I see good reviews, but cant understand how so much can happen to 1 car. I've had a Toyota Corolla with 280k miles, and no major issues. Milan was a mistake for me!

I bought a 2008 Mercury Milan Premier 4 cylinder with Automatic with 23K last year. I put 27K on it in one year, the most I've ever driven. I've previously owned Mazda, Toyota, Honda, Saab, Volvo and never thought I'd buy a Ford product. But I can honestly say that I am pleasantly surprised. I have had no problems other than a squeaky a/c fan (which went away). The car is well designed inside and out and pleasant to drive, if not refined. It's also economical. I have been able to get about 27/33 MPG out of my Milan.

My 2008 Milan AWD looks sharp in black w/ spoiler and 2 tone leather interior.Has all the options except navigation.I never had to do anything,not even put air in the tires except w/ oil changes.Takes a curve at 75 mph on the parkway w/o any problem. Getting 30 mpg if going 70 and under.Fun to drive,handles well,love the little things I used to have in my Lincoln like the keypad on the door,compass,auto headlights,calculated mpg etc.but for a lot less money than a Lincoln.My friend has a Lexus 250 IS Awd that cost 10,000 more, has less features,plain interior and has had problems to boot!Go Ford and keep up the good work!

I had all but written off Big three products. I was coming off my MDX lease and was looking for a more gas mileage friendly vehicle. I was also looking to spend a bit less. The Milan just had the best look, quietest ride, fun toys(SYNC and CD changer) for the money. My prior departure from consumer reports recommendations (with ford) have ended badly. To my surprise CR gave the Milan a full red circle(highest rating) for reliability and Camry was only given an average rating. The unfortunate rapid depreciation put a quasi luxury vehicle under 2 years of factory warranty into the range of affordability. 28 MPG 60% highway/country roads. Comp Camry had 80k miles, to a Milan with 16K

Bought this used Milan as a commuter for a 100 mile daily commute. So far, averaging 28 MPG mainly HWY miles. Seats are very comfortable. The 6 CD changer sounds great. The sync system works much better with my blackberry then the system in my 2004 Acura TL! A slight power trade-off but well worth it for the 28 MPG. This car is a great value!

For the money - GREAT car!

I didn't know what to expect from this car. I traded an 04 STS Cadillac, and thought I was giving up a lot. Didn't happen! Love the room in this car. Love the comfort (I drive 35,000 a year) and love the fact that everything works, no squeaks, and great milage. Around 25 mpg. I am VERY happy with this car, and can't wait to buy an 2010. Love it!

I bought this car a few months ago, and the ride is awsome. Drives like a lincoln. I got the V4, and it gets great gas milage. It has a lot of power for a v-4. About 28 mpg hwy. The stereo has a great sound. Finger touch steering wheel for radio and cruise control. Leather seats are padded for a nice long ride. Its a classey type car for the money. A little hard to see out the back window when backing. I would recommend this car.

After having my heart set on an Audi A4, I test drove the Milan at the same dealership. When I compared the cars, it was apparent the Milan was the better buy, and I decided to take the chance. Of course, it's not an Audi, but it is very comfortable, has great features like the Sync and the satellite radio, and drives extremely well. After putting about 7,000 miles on it, I'm still happy with my decision and would definitely recommend this car to anyone.

I purchased this vehicle used with only 3000 miles! It was not my first choice, but I had read about it online and decided to try it. The dealer had it in a back corner. I like the drive and I feel comfortable and I like all of the features, although I will probably never use them all. I am not impressed with my mpg's so far, although I am told it will get better as I "break the car in". I am getting 17 highway! Except for that, I love the vehicle. It has a smooth ride and I get no interior rattling (so far) as some have reported.

The Mercury Milan is simply a better drive than any of the usual suspects in the mid-size sedan category. The I- 4 does not make for a fast sedan, but I knew that going in. The exterior design is distinctive without trying to be different, and presents an exceptionally well balanced look. The trim package on my otherwise base model Milan included top rated Michelin tires and beatiful 17 inch wheels. The interior is very well laid out,and sensible. the fit and finish flawless, and reliability 100% so far.

I am giving the car points by what it realy deserves. This car is decent looking, fairly comfortable, and has good mileage. The car is probably best value due to factory incentives. The problems are - not enaugh headspace for people 6'1" and over, engine is little bit noisier and definitely not silky smooth. It also lacks the power to accelerate - be prepared to be passed by moms in minivans. I had a problem with steering (pulling to left side), this was fixed by dealership (changed steering rod) as warranty repairs. Otherwise no problem with quality. Everything works fine. Also Ford improved the lights so you can drive at night and actually see.

I traded in my 2005 Nissan Altima SER for a brand new 2008 Mercury Milan. My Altima SER was purchased used with 8,600 miles on the odometer. The only drawback it had a six speed manual transmission. It had 18" mag wheels, low profile racing tires, a Bose stereo system, great racing seats, and a powerful 270 hp engine. When I blew the clutch it cost me $1500.00 to get it fixed. Well Nissan blew the repair, I couldn't find reverse at times, neither could I find first. I got so discouraged after several attempts to get it right with Nissan, I went car shopping. I found the Mercury Milan Premier. Its a great car, but its not an Altima SER. Thus my title Apples or Oranges...

Having driven a Nissan for the past 4 years and have BMW and VW, I was very apprehensive to go domestic. I needed AWD for weather and this is the best value car with AWD in mid-size. Altima, camry do not offer AWD. Car is built very well, I have no rattles, interior design is classy and clean. Full mileage - difficult to say on 1000 miles driven but AVG. of 23 for mixed driving is not great (our 535i gets 26 avg) - but with a AWD drivetrain it is much better than SUV's Highway is over 30 mpg.

Unbeatable interior and exterior styling, mechanical quality and great gas mileage! The creature comforts are endless. SYNC is awesome, and the leather interior is very comfortable. The rims and grille provide fantastic exterior style. The sound system is unparalled. All this, with great gas mileage, 24 in the city, 32 on the freeway no problem. Forget about the Camry, Maxima and cCvic, the Mercury Milan is where it is at. Do yourself a favor and purchase this car!

The last was a Honda Accord. Hated it, ride hard and uncomfortabe large heavy doors making access and exit difficult. My Milan beats it by a more than a mile.

I get around 30+ mpg. on highway. I drove 300 miles on a trip and averaged 32 mpg. with air blasting and speed average of 70-75 mph. That's good for a v6. The sound system is good. I like the mp3 outlet. There is plenty of storage space and great trunk space. The city mpg is terrible. I average 17 mpg. in city driving. The dash and doors rattle terribly and I drive very carefully as to not hit large bumps hard. The dealer can't fix it. The cloth seats are cheap, period! It needs a digital clock in the radio. There is a storage compartment on top of the front dash. I can't wait for that to also rattle. What a stupid place to put a storage compartment.

The car blends handling and comfort remarkably well. The Milan sticks to the road thru hard turns yet still soaks up bad pavement pretty darn well. Power and acceleration are plenty enough for those of us who don't buy a car to race it. Mid and high end power is very good for passing and surging on the highways. Attractive inside and out, this car has all the creature comforts I wanted for about $4000 less than I would of payed for a simiarly equipped Accord or Camry. Factor in the high marks for reliability that Milan/Fusion get and you can't go wrong here.

Had a Mercury Villager with 100,000 miles and no problems at all. Decided on the Milan and am very pleased with it's performance. The Sync is just great, the stereo system awesome, A/C, as on all Lincoln/Mercury products is the best and the coldest! Love the moonroof, heated seats, the leather, the "get up and go" is as good as any vehicle ever. Overall, beats the Camry, Honda',Malibu and all the others in this price range as well as those higher, even some of the Mercedes!Good mileage, great looks and turns heads. What more could you want!

Quiet and smooth ride. Excellent on highway MPG at 60 MPH --> 36 to 38 MPG on the onboard gauge on average hilly terrain for Atlanta. A bit noisy at high RPM, but quiet overall. Sync works very well with LG VX9400 phone. Won't miss the park assist, but disappointed at no built-in garage door opener (oh well). Around the neighborhood - averaging about 24-26 MPG as long as don't jump on the gas pedal. Stay moderate and keep RPM's below 2.5-3K and you'll do well on gas. Handles very well. The interior design is great and the charcoal cloth seats are very comfortable. Wife has a bad back to comfort was king in our choice of vehicle.

I've been driving this car for just under two months, and I am in love with it! I have no complaints whatsover, except on the standard model which I am leasing, there is only two gears. The lowest gear is too low but the other one is too high for going down steep hills. No problem with the horsepower, it does fine for me. I wouldnt change anything about the looks, it's beautiful inside and out. The Milan makes a great impression on people. The gas mileage isnt as good as I thought, I'm getting around 26 in the mountains. The '08 Milan also has huge trunk space.

I've had my Milan for a week now, and love it. On my first tank of gas I am getting 23.9 MPG city. Have not had a chance for Hwy yet. I test drove several vehicles, 08 Fusion, 09 Sonata, 09 Corolla, 08 Malibu, 08 Optima, some were better buys I will admit, however, I love the way this car drives and is very comfortable for me. I really wanted a sunroof and heated seats, however, there were none available at this time in the area so I gave them up because I really wanted this car for the comfort. I purchased the White Suede Metalllic with Camel Leather Interior. I would definitely recommned this car.

I bought my 2008 I-4 Mercury Milan Premier because I really loved it's exterior & interior looks. After the honeymoon was over I realized that a 4 cylinder 150 hp engine was not enough to generate excitement during aceleration & passing speeds on this car. To top all my wife bought a 4 cylinder 2008 Nissan Altima S. I drove it yesterday and blew me away with its acceleration. Yes I know it has 25 extra horsepower. But It made me feel young again. Sorry Lincoln-Mercury. But the truth shall set you free. Looks can be deceiving and Mercury Milan Premier I-4 is really a Grand Pa Corolla in disguise!

With only 1000 miles on it, I'm getting 28 mpg on the highway. Holds the road very well - like driving on velcro. Very good base audio system. Leather seats comfortable, especially with the heated seats option. Good over the hood visibility. Large trunk and tons of cargo capacity with 60/40 split folding rear seats. Transmission shifts smoothly and the quiet V6 provides enough power to move this car around. Fit and finish is good and the vapor silver paint job looks great on this car.

I downsized from a Crown Vic & Lincoln Continental. I am a big guy 6" 215 lbs 65 yrs old. I was a little concerned about buying what is a smaller car but so far I am comfortable. I average 24 MPG in first 1500 miles.If I drive with my foot in it I am getting 20. Great Handling quiet ride. The sound system is great. Roomy trunk(back seats fold down). The 4 cyl a little week with out high revving but this is the nature of 4 cyls,& I bought for economy. If you need power V6 it. But I am happy with the I4 for the economy. The sound system controls on the steering wheel are great. Handles and corners better than many cars I have driven.

I owned this car for about one month and I fell in love with it. I drove Honda, Nissan, Mazda before and no one can compare with this Milan. So far I drove about 1,000 miles and MPS is about 26.5. I love digital keypad power door locks and you will never worry about locking you key inside the car.

Love My Milan

I have had my Milan for a little over 3 months now and love it. It handles great in wet weather and I was surprised at how it handled in snow. It worked much better in snow than the Subaru I had before this and I thought that was good. The 6 cylinder definitely gives it more power in the snow. I love the sunroof and the stereo is unbelievable! Never thought I would really like or want heated leather seats but now couldn't live without them. The spoiler adds a sporty look to it and I highly recommend you get it. The SYNC system is awsome and takes some patience until you figure out exactly how to use it. It is a bit frustrating at first until you use it alot. Love this car! Buy it!

Better value than Imports

Driven this Milan for 3 weeks and it is a car that you just can't get enough of! 4cyl. w/ 5 speed auto has very good power even with 4 adults. Avg. 28.6 mpg with under 1000 miles on car. The fit/finish is great and with 17" wheels this car is very attractive. Drove Honda, Nissan and Kia and this Mercury handles better than all. For the value this one hard to beat!

I really like this car. I traded in a 2006 Mercury Montego, and overall like this car much better. Plenty of leg room in the front, handles very well, nice pickup, and the gas mileage is not bad. The car looks great, better tires and wheels than the Montego, plenty of trunk space. Fun to drive.Overall, I am very happy with this car and would recommend to everyone. Coming from a full size to a mid size makes me like the mid size better. I change cars every 26 months, and this cars a keeper.

Excellent

Excellent experience, I honestly don't have any complaints, the ride is great, the color is gorgeous. The v6 power keeps you ahead of traffic.

Drove BMW's for 17 years.

The Milan is a well designed car with many features that are exclusive to Ford/Mercury. The car handles well as a BMW528 and for $28000.00 less! Mine is loaded with Nav, bluetooth, Sync, sat radio, AWD, and believe it or not, the car turns heads. It's got power and the car stops on a dime. Handling is aggressive. I did find that the head-room with the sun-roof was tight, but it was fine once I adjusted the seat, and tilted the steering wheel to suit my position. A very minor issue that I have had to deal with before on my BMW's and Mercedes. The car is awesome in the snow. Mercury set out to beat the Japanese manufactures, and they beat or matched the Europeans in the process. A great car!

Excellent Choise

I wanted an American brand mid-size V6 sedan. I looked at the Saturn, Dodge, and Pontiac. I was convinced that the Milan had the other three beat in just about all areas. My wife loves the ride, I like the power, and I am very happy with the economy of this power train. We took a 2500 mile trip from Michigan to Florida and averaged 30.6 MPG at 70MPH.

Wondering what if I had chosen Camry

Chose Milan for $2500 savings over comparably equipped Camry. Ours is standard 4 cyl with auto package. Car pulled to right slightly on test drive, became worse as miles passed. Took to dealer for alignment at 600 miles, they had for 2 and half days. Had to replace upper control arms after alignment didn't fix problem (TSB from Ford.) Though now tracking better, tire pressure monitor system now shows fault. Now I wonder if I should have spent the extra money on the Camry.

More elegance at the price of a Ford

The fit and finish as well as tight performance are up to European and Japanese standards, but where this car really excels is in beauty and luxury. We love the front end styling and standard aluminum wheel design.The Wales Mahogany wood interior trim looks sleek with the charcoal leather and contrasting stitching. It's never gaudy, but beautiful. The six-way power driver's seat was standard, even on the base model! The audiophile sound system with the Moon & Tune package is one of the best I've ever used--and with the sunroof, it was only an $800 option. I feel confident that the quality of this car will last, and I'll be delighted to drive it for years.

A solid choice

Car is quiet at speed on the parkway. Handles nicely and never loses it's composure. Rides smoothly. Disappointing 21 mpg so far with a lot of highway driving. Hope it improves to around 25 mpg combined. Sacrificed performance getting the 4cyl as the car must be revved high to pass and accelerate from a stop. Interior could be more modern but I am glad they didn't copy the Japanese and the guage cluster is a pleasant change from the super huge bright displays seen on the competition. Dash,armrest, and door sills are thickly padded. Do not buy without reverse sensing system as rear window is very high. Doors and trunk sound solid not tinny.

First Mercury and couldn't be happier!

I purchased an AWD Premier loaded with navigation. It absorbs the bumps very well, it's quiet, has a great stereo, and it handled extremely well in a rainstorm with high winds on my last trip. The 6-speed auto shifts very smoothly. It's a very solid-built car. I especially like the reverse remote sensors when you back up. I've had 2 Honda Accords in the past 6 years, and this Mercury beats them by far. I would buy another Mercury in a heartbeat.

Great car

I went to the dealer to buy a MKZ, but after testing it against the Milan Premier I4, I felt the Milan was well worth the savings of almost $10,000 over the MKZ. I drive a lot each year and was looking for both comfort and gas economy. I am extremely happy with my choice. I have found the I4 to have plenty of pickup for merging on the interstate or turnpike, and the 5 speed gives good pickup at different speeds.

Mercury makes buying American Fun!

This car stands out from the others in its class. I have the Premier V-6 with AWD. The 17" wheels and classy interior give this car a high-class appearance and feel at a fraction of the cost. People who see my car instantly change their mind about the Mercury product line. The feel is excellent and the car seems to hug the road with ease. I highly recommend the Milan to anyone that wants domestic and appreciates a little Detroit flair and ingenuity! I never thought I would own a Mercury at my age but I do and now I love the whole Mercury lineup.

I love my Mercury Milan premier. It is a very affordable car. With a 2.3 litre four cylinder engine I average 21 m.p.g. city and 31 m.p.g highway. So my fuel costs are low and so are my insurance costs. The Milan is also a stylish, well equipped car. 17 inch aluminum wheels, a waterfront grille and thoughtful lights grace a body that looks like a more expensive European car. A long list of standard and optional features is sure to please the buyer who wants elegance, comfort, entertainment, information and a great ride. I especially like the soft leather seats with double stitching, the six speaker audio system with radio, Sirrius radio, and six CD changer For a great car try Mercury Milan.

Too Much Hype

When I test drove the Milan, the dealership did not have a model I wanted; AWD w/ a moonroof. When I got my car, I noticed that the moonroof cost me 4” of head room. Consequently I hit my head on every little bump. The design of the back window is poor. You can not tell where the end of the car is and you can not see 3-5feet beyond the back bumper. God help any of you who have children or pets around when you are driving in reverse. You would think that engineering would see this risk a mile away. I hope pregnant women or people who can not stand strong fumes do not buy this car. The plastic they use in the car is still giving me a sore throat. Steering is loose at highway speed
