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


Review

Very solid, i also have a 04 town car, this has less wind noise. holds the road well,power ok, i would be happy with a few more horses. interior space is great. we wanted cloth seats, they are comfortable, but the leather version seems a bit wider, rear seat belts are hard to insert. headlights very bright, but have a short distance. local gas mileage good, should be better at highway speeds.


Best Features

very roomey, excellent visability, dash layout good. quiet solid ride. many cup holders, glove box's.


Worst Features

more horsepower, telescoping steering wheel.

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


Review

The car is absolutly wonderful in the snow. Have had nothing but good to say about it. Caught the gravel once and the car pulled right out of it. Worst snow of the year and drove right through it, the all wheel drive is great! Plenty of room in the back for my teenage boys, more room in the car and trunk than in most of the SUV's on the market. Sits a little higher than other cars but lower than a truck. The only problem I have is reaching over the window sill at the bank and the ATM's. Going to sell the 2005 and buy a new one. I haven't found another car on the market today that handles this well in the snow and rain, and the safety features are really comforting.


Best Features

AWD Want it in every auto I purchase.


Worst Features

Could have a better color selection, and why are all the new cars grey, tan or black inside, I so miss the burgundy!

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


Review

After 2 winters of Chrysler 300 RWD, I wanted an AWD vehicle. Liked the value of Mercury Montego. Added a spoiler and chrome trim on doors, side molding and trunk to spruce up the looks. I am very pleased overall with the car. Very comfortable.


Best Features

Command seating, moonroof, lights, CVT, roomy interior, trunk size, comfort, easy of entry/exit, fit & finish, gas mileage.


Worst Features

Rear shocks/ride could be softer, telescoping steering wheel, more giddy up from dead start.

Worst Features

Add turn lights to the mirrors.
