It has been a year now since I purchased my 09 Milan. I have logged only 4,500 miles to date, and (so far) no major issues. I will say that the transmission labors a bit to shift out of first gear when it is cold outside. But is fine once warmed up.It does get on my nerves a bit. My absolute MAJOR complaint is with the headrests in this car! Almost unbearable! I notice all of the Ford products have adapted to this design.I will not purchase another Ford product next year if they are not changed. Other than the two issues I have stated,the car is very good! Mileage is in the mid 20's per gallon. I rarely use it on long trips due to the uncomfortable headrests! It gives me a pain in the neck!
Keypad entry is an excellent feature and I use it all the time! You can never lock yourself out of the car! No matter how hard you try!! Automatic door locking feature is also very good.
You know what I am going to say to this,don't you?! ALTER THE DESIGN OF THE HEADRESTS!! I see some other people have complained about this as well! The dealer told me to remove them if it bothers me so much. What am I supposed to do for head protection in case of an accident? They remain as of now.
I have had my 09 Milan for 3 months. We have taken one long trip in it. The rest of the time has been spent driving within 50 miles of home. Right now I am getting 30.4 mpg with a cruising range of over 500 miles. With employee pricing and rebates, I was able to buy this awesome vehicle for less than $20,000. We live in the country so Sirrus radio is wonderful since we can't always pick up a good radio station.
Sync, 6 pack CD player, Sirrus radio, back-up sensors (I feel safer with small grandchildren around), heated seats and mirrors and automatic dimming rear view mirror. Also like oil changes every 5000 miles vs 3000 in previous vehicles.
Figure out how to not have to resync phone every time the engine is turned off.
Well, I turned in the lease of my 06 Lincoln Zephyr and purchased an 09 Milan Base model with auto transmission. A very good basic sedan and the 4 cyl gets great mileage. After driving a fully loaded Lincoln for 3 years it's hard to go to a base model, however, I don't do the driving I used to. The car is fine for what I need, however, the headrests are very uncomfortable! Why they changed them I'll never know! I had no problem with the ones on my Lincoln. Hopefully, I can switch them out! I've had the car for 2 weeks and I still haven't put gas in it! Great basic no frills transportation.
Keyless entry pad on drivers door, tilt/telescopic steering wheel. That's about it. Like I said it is a basic car.
Replace those headrests! The car is comfortable otherwise.
I have to admit that doubted the commercials claiming that the Milan/Fusion was preferred over the Camry and Accord. Driving is believing. You have to drive one to believe that this car is on par with the Camry and Accord. The Milan is an impressive car. The handling is excellent. Before the snow, I put it through some aggressive winding roads. It hugs the road gives you confidence. We received our first snows of the season here and have had no trouble on the roads. The acceleration is is good. We have about 1000 miles on the car. We average 23-24 MPG in the city. Driving more agressive, the mileage drops to about 21-22 MPG. We haven't driven any highway miles yet.
Smooth handling and comforatable ride. The synch system is awesome. I love it. Easy to use. I plugged in the ipod and use the synch system in minutes.
Ford has to get on board with automatic head lights. I can't stand having to fiddle with headlights. Just turn them on for me, that's all I ask.
