I previously owned Camry's and they were OK, but I got bored. Drove a Fusion as a rental car and I was totally impressed with performance and styling. I didn't find the Fusion affordable however and then stumbled on the Milan--same car with a little more elegance, which Mercury was always famous for. Sporty, yet sophisticated with a touch of class. Great interior controls and other surprises like park aid and automatic volume adjustment. Love this car in all aspects. I would not have bought a Ford 10 years ago but they have come a long way in recent years and because they were the only company that didn't accept government bailout money makes Ford that much more successful with the products they are turning out. Their pride really shows now!

Best car I've ever owned thus far...

This has got to be the best car I've ever owned! Talk about an eye opener! I was really into a company that started with a "C" guy but this car has TOTALLY changed my mind. I bought the Milan V6 Premier used and you wouldn't think that it was because it looked and ran like NEW! Heated leather seats, great sound system, great power under the hood, excellent design and looks, and talk about a comfortable ride....wow! It gets good gas mileage...about 18/27. I was suprised how much room I had in the front(I'm 6'2"). I feel very much at home in this car. I would FOR SURE get this kind of car again! I love it!

Excellent overall buy. I'm very impressed. I have over 4500 miles on my 08 Milan and I feel that it's one of the best vehicles I've ever owned. Handles great, Interior is top notch. I love the Sync system. I purchased the 2008 Milan Premier 4cyl. It's loaded with leather, moonroof, Microsoft Sync, electronic climate control, remote garage opener (attached to sun visor). I can't be happier with my purchase. I would highly recommend this vehicle to anyone considering a purchase of a midsize car.

Happy Milan Owners.

My wife and I were in the market for a Focus, 2007 or older, to keep the price and payments low. We stumbled on a Milan Premier with 80K miles. We test-drove it and fell in love. My wife loved the leather, heated seats, etc., and I liked the performance of the 4-cylinder engine, and the body styling, as well as the LED tail lights. We've had the car for several months, and it now has 90K miles. This car has gone 10K miles since its last oil change, and upon checking it, has not lost or burned 1 drop of oil, and the oil isn't that dark! The car even started life as a rental! We average 26MPG overall. This 4-cylinder out-accelerates our older Taurus, and gets much better mileage! We plan on driving this car well past 200K miles! The interior is plenty comfortable, and the only gripe is with the 1st generation Sync system. You can tell by the interface with the regular radio that it's an afterthought. When it doesn't drop the bluetooth connection to my wife's phone, it works well. The menus are less than intuitive.

I was looking for a late model preowned Ford Fusion before I stumbled upon the Mercury Milan I4 Premier. I am now SO HAPPY I did! The Milan's cool styling, great interior (two-tone leather seats) and dash design, it's awesome sound system, and it's "I can't do without" SYNC, immediately swayed me from the Fusion.

I own a Milan Premier V6 with Nav. and SYNC. I switched to Mercury after owning Toyota's for 10 years my last Camry was a disaster. The Milan drives very smoothly, securely hugging the road while curbing. The V6 has enough power at all times: on highways while accelerating and from a stop-start state. It is well laid out inside as well. I am completely satisfied with this car. I have had no problems whatsoever.

The Mercury Milan has a nice mix of comfort, sportiness and power. The interior is elegant with all the features you could ask for. The six speed transmission takes a little getting used to. This american car cost about two-thirds of what a comparable import would run. Good luck.

Best Mid-Size Sedan For The Money!!!

by from New York on September 29, 2008

A great all around car, European styling, American design, 29-33 mpg on the highway(I4). All this and thousands less than its Japanese counterparts.
