2006 Mercury Montego Sedan Luxury 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)
This car has a severe transmission problems that the company will not admit. it will not shift properly the engine revs misses slips gears this is a widespread problem and I find it astonishing that every single review is five stars sounds like the fix is in. to rebuild transmission is $4,100. Also the heating cooling system only works on one side that's another $800 to fix. Warning never buy this car model, it has a severe known problem that costs way more to fix than the cars worth
2006 Mercury Montego Sedan Premier 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
In Dec. '16 I drove over 2 hrs. to dealer in Teterboro, NJ w/a retired Ford/Mercury mechanic who did inspection of my SUV Sedan inside, out & under. It had just over 72,000 miles on it. Dealer ended up selling to me for $5,500 because the driver's seat heater did not function. I really can live w/o a heated seat. I really liked the looks of this black beauty, but what really sold me was it's SUV sitting height, storage sf and above all--ADJUSTABLE PEDALS! My height is just under 5'. I have been driving 58 years w/no accidents & no tickets so I know a thing or two about driving and cars! WHY DON'T ALL VEHICLE MAKES COME WITH ADJUSTABLE PEDALS especially with so many of our more recent immigrants also being vertically challenged? My next car WILL have those pedals! Only problem I have had is that last Nov. it turned over nicely but would not start. Had it towed to local Ford Dealer. Turned out it was not the fuel pump but the Power Control Module which it turned out was still covered on this beauty! If Ford brings back this car or makes any with a reasonable size such as the doomed Fusion, when I need another vehicle, I would buy it for the Adjustable pedals. I suppose most car makers' engineers are closer to 6' or they would get on it. WAKE UP CAR DESIGNERS!!!!!!
