2005 Montego Premier AWD CVT
By Dave Croft on


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


This is probably the last car I'll ever need to buy. I like everything about it. I've had dozens of cars and trucks before. This one's a keeper. It's comfortable and fun to drive. I've found the 3.0 liter to have plenty enough power for my needs and the gas mileage is amazing for this class of vehicle. Average 23-24 local driving and on a long trip using cruise control this thing jumps up to an average of 32-33 mpg. Since 2007 I've driven it 40,000 miles. I bought it with 23,000 on it for a total of 63,000 miles. It runs like new. The Montego is built like a tank, rugged. The AWD coupled with Traction control and the CVT transmission work together allow the car to walk over any ice or snow.

Best Features

Moon roof, backup sensors, awd in bad weather it can't be beat. height of seating allows good visibility. 2 driver memory selection.

Worst Features

Windshield wiper blades (they chatter)
