2006 Mercury Montego Premier 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
When I first purchased this car I was initially impressed.
It was very comfortable to drive with the seating and easy to get in and out of the car with lots of trunk space.
Unfortunately, then the problems started to surface.
The paint began to peel off the leading edge of my aluminum hood, the drivers side window goes down when you press the up button, the rear drums are rusting prematurely, and the module that controls my AWD shorted out my control panel!
The dealer quoted me $1900 to replace the module and keep my AWD! My first and probably last experience with the Ford brand.
BTW, my car has not even reached 100,000 miles.
Interior seating is very comfortable for long drives and trunk is very spacious.
The interior styling with the black leather seats is also very nice.
I consider the overall quality poor given my car has not even reached 100,000 miles.
