I absolutely love my 2005 Montego premier and v6 cvt transmission ❤️ It really is an amazing car ! I got it for $300 with a blown motor the previous owner was not all that bright and ran the car over an hour home with no oil in it so the motor was shot . I went to our nearby scrap yard and got a motor I with 45k on it for another $300 ! Mind you the car is fully loaded heated peer seats , sun roof , back up sensors , power windows , keyless entry you name it ! The cars got it for its year ! So my husband did the labor of the motor job , not so much as a check engine light nothing ! Runs great drives great . Of course I had to do normal stuff like wheel bearings ,breaks , lower control arms . Nothing to dramatic ( has 182k on the odemeter ) . Overall I love the car and would recommend it to ANYONE has some good power and decent gas mileage for the size of it . My only let down is its design . It's kind of got the old lady car look but heck for the comfort of it I'll take it ! I've had the car for a year and a half and put 40ishK miles on it . She's never let me down "knock on wood" but she is getting a bit rusty I live in upstate NY and her pervious owner didn't take the best care of her . So she will soon be retired ! But I would definitely recommend this car to anyone like I said before !

Ford well ahead of it's time on this car's standard accessories. AWD provides awesome handling in snow and on wet roads. There are numerous small extras like: 10-way power + heated, both driver and passenger, leather bucket seats; heated side mirrors; auto audio level is controlled by Montego's speed; separate driver/passenger climate controls; 2-person memory seat, outside mirrors and brake/gas position settings; auto-dimming mirror with electronic compass and universal garage door openers; HID headlights and LED tail lights...And many more features that all add up to an extremely comfortable and quiet ride.

Most comfortable and reliable car!

We bought our '05 Montego Premier in 2011, from a family member. It had 35,000 miles on it. It's still like new. Only issue was the A/C quit in 2015, we replaced it for $950.00. Other than new tires, and routine maintenance - zero issues. Comfortable, reliable, nice features - wish the gas mileage was better. However, we didn't buy if for the gas mileage!

We loved the vehicle the moment we saw it and liked it even better when we test drove the car,. The vehicle had everything we were looking for, heated seats, power seats, driver and passenger and sunroof as well as many other features. The car drives like a new vehicle and is smooth riding and quiet. The side mirrors are larger which makes it easy to see both sides. I like the back up sensor that tells me I am getting too close. Overall we are extremely happy with this purchase.

Montego is a very reliable car.

by from Nashville, Tn on June 12, 2012

I have owned this car since 05 and I have never had a problem with the car. AWD comes in handy during the winter time.

No problems with this car. Excellent fuel economy. Huge interior with clever seats; swallows up up to a 14 ft. ladder by folding rear and front passenger seat backs. All wheel drive is awesome yet unobtrusive; weighs only 140 lb more than the front wheel drive.. Fantastic breaks. Very quiet. Good audio system standard. Transmission has infinite gears; makes so much sense. Amazing number of air bags for safety. Ford is a pioneer in crash technology and continues the tradition by crashing more cars than any other company. Standard features such as high intensity headlights and LED tail lights that never burn out and light up almost a full second sooner than incandescant bulbs (Prevents rear -end collisions) are much appreciated. As my beloved father said "Son you should buy one...they are giving them away!" I did and am so glad!

I've owned this vehicle for almost a year and I am still very satisfied. I have had no problems whatsoever, and the only money I've spent on upkeep has been a couple oil changes. Very comfortable, classy interior and attractive exterior especially for price. I have read some reviews complaining about the acceleration. Although I'd be happier with the 3.5L V6 I had in my old Taurus GL, I merge into fast moving traffic with ease and find it more than sufficient in the pep department. I am actually looking forward to an upcoming 1300 mile drive in my Mercury.

So far the Montego is an great value for the money. Lots of room on the front, rear and the trunk area. Easy to drive despite the large configuration. Engine is nice if driven normal. Lots of standard features. High intensity lights (HID) with auto headlights, LED tail lamps, information center and an A/C with dual controls for the driver and front passenger are pluses.
