FoMoCo's Very Pleasant surprise! Healthy!

Expecting safety I was shocked by this first new big car from Ford in 20 years. Huge interior, luxurious comfortable seats at "butt level" and gigantic trunk yet nimble exterior, flexible seating with split back allows skis to stay inside out of the road mess; or to carry my ladder etc. Super headroom. Excellent gas mileage on regular fuel. 22 mpg around town and 29 on the highway. European handling which is handy in Northern California secondary roads. Extremely comfortable ride swallows potholes. Great brakes. Love the smoothness of the CVT. Factory Stereo is wonderful. Best new car I ever purchased. Greatly exceeds my expectations. Improvements suggested: none really except for a satellite radio option.

Looking for Reliability and Comfort.

I have owned a 2006 Mercury Montego for 3 weeks now. I was looking for a comfortable, safe car to drive. I am very happy with my purchase. I have had 2 knee replacements and 1 hip replacement in the last three years, so comfort is very important to me. Riders don't mind sitting in the backseat, because it's huge. Plenty of legroom and headroom for tall people! There is so much space that I have no trouble getting in and out of the car. I found the acceleration to be kicky, in fact I love driving this car. I find the controls to be easy to find and use. Well thought out by the engineers. The previous owner installed a different stereo/gps system. It sounds fantastic. It makes me kind of wonder what the old one sounded like. I like most everything about this car. It's a good looking, safe, and comfortable ride!

I've never had a better car! Love it! I've had my 06 for 4 years or almost, only had to adjust back brake pads, now am wondering if driver's seat heater should have been a recall, since other models had similar problems!! Cannot find a recall, so will have to get it fixed myself, but still not bad for an 06!!!

Purchased 2005 Premier AWD used in 2008 with 59000 miles on it. Initially I was concerned about the CVT transmission reliability factor but so called reliability problems never occurred. Now with over 230,000 miles in 2014 the car simply runs fantastic. Very spacious and smooth running with great visibility. I love the AWD, it really tracks well in snow and rain. Interior volume is much better than my 2009 Lincoln MKS, 2012 Chrysler 300 and 2008 Cadillac CSTS AWD. If you want a safe and reliable sedan for high mileage transportation, the Mercury Montego AWD is a great car.

I still can't believe I've got a car like this with all the features it has for under $30000. I am pleased with the looks, the ride is nice,large trunk, CVT very smooth. I know I will not win any drag races with this car, but thats not what I bought it for. I am looking forward to my long trips the next couple of years. You have got to check this one out, don't let it slip by.

We bought this as a used car with only 7000 miles on it. We traded in a Grand Marquis and find that the Montego is more comfortable, has more trunk room (will hold 4 golf bags) and is much easier to get in and out of. The only drawback is the mileage for the really short trips that we take. Overall a great car.

Carrying on from my first review. Simply stated, this vehicle is among the most reliable I have ever owned. Only "major" repair was replacing the AC compressor. I am actually looking for another Montego to possibly replace my Impala! You cannot fo wrong with this model!

I drive about 120 miles a day and can say without doubt this is a great car. The all wheel drive feels great in all types of weather - not just snow. It has A LOT of room on the interior so you never feel cramped. The trunk is huge so there is plenty of room for the weekend trip. Have kids? Then you will definitely love the rear seat room - easy to put in a baby seat and your kids won't be kicking the back of your chair for a while. Also love the higher than usual seating position so you have great visability. I like this car so much I am trading in for a newer model year.
