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


Review

This car really takes the bumps & railroad tracks nicely. It's very solid feeling and it has great acceleration. The interior is very roomy. The dash is impressive and I particularly like the analog clock, it seems classy. The trunk is quite large and the vertical grill is cool. And what makes this car all-the-more sweeter, itís assembled in America with 86% American parts. Ford Motor got the Montego right!


Favorite Features

The car is solid with good acceleration. It's roomy. It has a Cool dash and a large trunk. The analog clock is nice.


Suggested Improvements

Include a full size spare tire.

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


Review

Loaded with nice touches: All steering wheel mounted controls lighted, exterior temp on dash, lighted clock remains operative with radio controls, interior rearview mirror magically dims following lights, ground lights from side mirrors, able to control duration of exit lights lag, keyless entry pad permits trunk and 4 door unlatch.


Favorite Features

High seating position, enormous trunk and rear seat, pass through rear seats, MPG display on dash, lighted analog clock on dash.


Suggested Improvements

More horsepower/torque a necessity

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


Review

Bought the Premier version, Merlot exterior w/ two tone tan interior. Car is a wonderful driver, there is plenty of hp for the everyday driver, maybe not for hp junkies. Very pleasant ride and is optioned out nicely. The HID lights are a plus at night. 18 inch wheels are attractive, but harder to clean with the multiple spokes. Getting a comfortable setting on the seats is easy and the available memory seat is great. A fine automobile, try it.


Favorite Features

two tone interior


Suggested Improvements

easier to clean wheels
