Missed opportunity
By richman6 on


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.
Update7-9-16: On top of losing a couple of the cars best features, this winter my heated seats stopped working and now my a/c needs repair. I also have a groaning noise in the front end that I have not even begun to investigate. To sum up this experience, If you are going to buy a new Ford to drive for a few years, it's probably a good option, if you are looking for a long term commitment, look elsewhere.
