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.
Interior, ride, quality, added option of remote start
Should have standard auto dim mirror and auto lights.
2008 Mercury Milan Premier 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
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!
SYNC, sound system, leather quality, rims and grill, turning performance, MPG, trunk space, Sirius radio, reliability, and price!
2008 Mercury Milan Premier 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)
Great looking, right size, comforable with enough power to get up and go when needed. Gets many complements. It's fun to drive. Had cars from T-birds to Mustangs plus many others. 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.
MP3 outlet, highway mpg. Nice, comfortable drive, sporty feel. The v6 has some zip. Huge trunk
Use better quality cloth for seats, it's cheap! Get rid of he stupid storage compartment in the front center of the dash. Better gas mpg. in the city. I'm sure I'm not the only person who has a Milan that has doors and a dash that rattle, and I haven't even owned it 9 months.
