Great Car
By Robert Claus on 12/21/05 21:43 PM (PST)

Vehicle

2005 Mercury Montego Premier Fwd 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)

Review

The Montego is a great car for the money, it has all the options you want included in the price. The car handles great in town or on the highway. Gas mileage in the twenties . Power seat on passenger side is only two way. No key lock for the trunk. Side veiw mirrors are large, already have broke one. Visibility is great front and rear.

2005 Mercury Montego Premier AWD 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl CVT)

Review

No problems to date - wife's car so it is not driven daily. Have had two (2) 500 mile trips - mileage just now getting up to rated - 28 / 29 mpg highway. Like the six speed auto - very smooth. Good looks outside and inside. Lots of room in back seat and trunk area. Could use more power but the six speed helps the 3 liter engine perform fairly well.

It is what it is...

2005 Mercury Montego Luxury Fwd 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)

Review

If you are looking for a performance sedan, this probably isn't the best choice of vehicles. If you are looking for a CAR that is actually comfortable for 5 people who might have luggage, this might just be THE BEST car on the market --> especially when price is a consideration. Backseat head and legroom is excellent in all three seat positions. The six- speed automatic transmission takes some getting use to, but gets the job done. I preferred this to the Ford 500 for the two-tone leather interior, HID headlamps and LED taillights. Gas mileage has been decent so far averaging about 26 mpg in mixed city/hwy driving.

Great Value and Comfort

2005 Mercury Montego Premier AWD 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl CVT)

Review

It won't snap your neck from the take- off, but then I don't need to get to 60 MPH in 4.5 seconds...The reviews citing this as a severely underpowered car are way over the top. It is a well- designed and straight-forward car that evokes the qualities that Ford made famous in the '30s through the 60s. Great value for the money and everyone who has seen my merlot Premium is impresssed. I am looking forward to a long road trip.

Mercury Montego is best in class...

Vehicle

2005 Mercury Montego Luxury Fwd 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)

Review

I'm a long-time car enthusiast, reading everything automotive & owning too many cars. For the 1st time ever, I had to buy a car for comfort over sportiness. After 3 mo. of research & test drives, the Montego w/employee discount + $1000 won me over. The "underpowered" blather in reviews is off- base...horsepower ratings are over- emphasized. It's funny, too, that the new SAE methodology for rating HP (stricter w/independent observer req'd) dropped the Camry's base V-6 from 210 to 190 HP, a car often compared to the Montego. Honda didn't rate the Accord V-6, but their other engines that have been rated dropped. I'm getting high 20's for mpg, many compliments, & riding in comfort & style.

The Auto Press Has It Wrong

2005 Mercury Montego Premier Fwd 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)

Review

As a previous owner of vehicles by Mazda, Saab, Toyota, etc., I was pretty much conditioned to believe that American cars were inferior. My experience with my Montego FWD Premier has changed all of that. This is a very nice car!!! The exterior appearance speaks for itself; it exudes class. The interior is very elegant as well; I particularly like the two-tone leather and audiophile radio. The safety features (I have the safety package option)are world class. I traded in a Pontiac GTO (built by Holden in Australia) on this car. Coming off a 350 HP car and reading the stinging criticism of this car being underpowered, I haven't found anything to be concerned about! It's a non-issue

A Great Car for the Money

2005 Mercury Montego Luxury Fwd 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)

Review

Performs very well. My only complaint is that it didn't come with a retractable antenna as an option. I guess if that's my only complaint, it must be a good car!

Montego!!!

2005 Mercury Montego Premier Fwd 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)

Review

Nice car, lots of options on the Premier. Handling is solid and power from the 3.0 V6 is very good. Not what the reviewers say. If you want super performance, buy a Mustang GT. Very happy with it. Comfortable too.

2005 Mercury Montego Luxury Fwd 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)

Review

My 2005 Mercury Montego Premier is great it has great syling and performance and has a HUGE backseat and a HUGE trunk and i love the smooth quiet ride and the beautiful Norsea Blue Paint and those nice 18in rims and i love the HID Headlamps and The Chromed Trimmed LED Tail lamps and the Command seating gives you a much better veiw of the road and so does the HID Headlamps all in all the Montego is a great car but my wife has a 2005 Mercury Sable LS Premium and i like that much better because it has a much more richer and classy interior but i like my Montego just the way it is ...

Excellent balance,fuel economy vs. power
By John T. on 09/17/05 12:01 PM (PDT)

Vehicle

2005 Mercury Montego Premier Fwd 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)

Review

As a Professional Engineer with many years of automotive experience I find my 2005 Mercury Montego,Premier FWD, to be of excellent balance between fuel economy and performance. After 7600 miles of driving I averaged 28.5 mpg HWY and 20.2 mpg city. The inside space and trunk size is best in class, overall quality is excellent,as is the driving and handling performance. For those who complain about engine size and power, I suggest get yourself a sports car and disqualify yourself commenting on an excellent family car,which is very appropriate considering current gas prices !
