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


Review

Handling and comfort are both excellent. The mileage on interstates & in town is very good for a vehicle this size. The interior is well thought out and the vehicle is very well equipped.


Best Features

The six speed transmission is almost seamless.Mild throtle glides through gears effortlessly.


Worst Features

Ten more horsepower but only if I did not have to give up excellent mileage. I don't really beleive it needs it.

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


Review

We moved from Califorina to Klamath Falls and was concerned about snow and ice. We bought the car with Tracktion control as well as shiftless transmission. We have seen people slide alot this winter but we only slid once when, going to fast, I moved into the center lane after a snow fall to make a last minute left turn.


Best Features

awd seat heaters, outside miror heaters


Worst Features

Get the antenna into the window and remove it from where it is.

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


Review

After my children grew up and after driving several vans for 22 years, I finally have a car that I can call my own. I enjoy the features, the controls on the steering wheel, automatic/dual heating/cooling system, the 6 CD changer, etc. So far the mileage in town has been 23+, much better than my vans. The ride and handling is comfortable and smooth. I especially picked this car because of its volvo design and engineering, especially the safety features and elevated seating. I just wish it had side curtain/side impact airbags as a standard feature. I think american automakers are missing the boat, not including these features.


Best Features

elevated seating automatic lights/locks/heating & cooling safety features music system


Worst Features

side impact/side curtain airbags as a standard feature "reverse sensing" as a standard feature

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, it’s assembled in America with 86% American parts. Ford Motor got the Montego right!


Best 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.


Worst Features

Include a full size spare tire.

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.


Best Features

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


Worst Features

More horsepower/torque a necessity
