2006 Mercury Montego Sedan Premier 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I was looking for a replacement for my reliable 2000 Mercury Sable LS with 225,000 and saw this car on the the net. The car had 6000 miles on it and was like new,from a Lincoln Mercury dealer, in Mertlot with a tan interior. The car other than the rear brakes replaced under the TSB there have no service other than maintenance. This car has been a joy to own and on long drives. This car is the best secret in the auto business with great features, great gas mileage 32-38 mpg expressway and 22-25 city drivung with an average of 27 mpg overall and great comfort. The car is in made in Chicago with great fit and finish.


Best Features

Seating, storage, style, reliablity, gas mileage


Worst Features

Radio could have been better with nothing else needing improvement

2006 Mercury Montego Sedan Luxury 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Great interior. Very roomy for a car this size, needs a more powerful engine, great paint quality. I got sideswiped, dented the quarter panel pretty substantiallly but never broke the paint, needs a longer warrenty to compete, alternator went at 41,000 -- $500 ouch! 27 MPG (that will work)


Best Features

Interior design, cabin space, mileage, nice sound system, back up warning signal is fantastic


Worst Features

Gas cap, front end design not very attractive

2006 Mercury Montego Sedan Luxury 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I changed the tires immediately, they were a bad ride. The motor is a bit loud in 1st first gear. I said the car hesitates when going into 2nd gear, but the dealer shot me down. The rear brakes drag when left overnight, there is a TSB so the dealer put new rear brakes and turned the rear rotors. The car is good on longer trips.The exterior mirrors are good in day driving, but I seem to have my vision on the left blocked and a glare. My wife likes the high drive visibility. Needs some more power when leaving from a light. I had a Mercury before this one and it lasted me 18 years, why fool with success.

2006 Mercury Montego Sedan Premier 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


Review

My problem has to do with the rain, water and leafs, pine needles, sand, anything that touches the windows goes into the door. The seal that is normally against the window in most cars, making it waterproof is not present on the Montego, in fact in discussing this with the few people that I was allowed to talk to at Mercury it was noticed that all of their cars except one, is now built this way. The seal that does touch the window is too far down, what doesn't go into the door with normal wind or vibration of the car goes into the door when the window is lowered. My car is not garage kept, I have mulch that is falling out of the bottom of the door, until it plugs up. Then what ice, rust....


Best Features

First to say a few good things about the Montego, it looks sporty for a big 4 door car and that is what was my selling point. Around town 21-22 MPG. Highway best I can get is 25.6, that was in 2 trips 4000 miles. They say it is rated going at 55 MPH, below the posted speed limit on most interstates.


Worst Features

Make all cars weather proof, a seal of some type retrofitted on all Mercury's makes sense. We paid full price and expect cars to repel the elements, not ingest them, rain drops run down the window right into the door, moisture inside the cars doors cannot be good for the life expectancy of the car.

2006 Mercury Montego Sedan Premier 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl CVT)


Review

Can't beat the Mercury Montego. AWD, spacious interior, comfortable, all the bells and whistles, loaded "to the gills" for around $30K. It's the poor man's Audi A8 but Audi doesn't offer 6 years with zero interest loans.


Best Features

Command seating, AWD, great nav system, zero interest financing.


Worst Features

It would be nice if the heated seats could stay on so when you use the optional remote start your buns get nice and toasty.
