2005 Mercury Montego AWD

2005 Mercury Montego Luxury AWD 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
I picked up my Mercury Montego AWD last March from a wholesaler in Florida. I read a few reviews from here and noticed folks really seemed to like the vehicle, and now I know why. I quickly found the car to be very suitable and probably the most room I've had for a medium size car for my 6' 5" body. I travel extensively on business trips and have already put on 15K miles in just these past few months. It handles just fine and has plenty enough power for my needs, although it is a bit sporty and some buyers might feel as though the car should fly for the way it looks. The gas mileage was the real surprise with trips getting 25 to 29 mph. One issue with the instrument gauges going off.

Ford should correct known the instrument panel issue of the gauges going on and off. Trunk is a bit heavy to left and could use a spring or two to assist.
