"The 2010 Mercury Milan is a truly awesome mid-size sedan that is well-deserving of all the accolades it (and the Fusion) are receiving! I have the base model with the 4-cylinder and the 6-spd auto, and find that I have all the power I need (a V-6 isn't needed) with excellent gas mileage (28MPG in the city). The car is very good-looking, extremely comfortable, rides and handles beautifully, and in my opinion, represents an incredible value (an amazing number of features for the money). And while this is basically a new car, research shows that the 2006 thru 2009 Milan/Fusion have eclipsed both the Camry and the Accord in terms of high reliability. My only issues are that it would have been nice to have a counterbalanced hood (vs. a prop rod), and I wish the 5-spoke 17-inch wheels were actually alloys (vs. wheel covers), but those are very minor issues that don't detract one bit from my being totally delighted with and completely impressed by this automobile. Ford was really wise to take consumer input on the first generation, incorporate that into the 2010 re-design, then introduce the 2010 model as early as they did. Major kudos to the folks in Dearborn...you guys DEFINITELY got this one right!"
"I have wanted this car since I was in high school. As soon as I graduated from college I could not wait to make my first major purchase by buying a Mercury Milan. I have not been disappointed. When I began looking for my new car I built the car that I wanted on the manufaturer's website. Luck would have it that the exact car that I built was available practically down the road from the office I work in. The minute I got in the car I knew I had to have it then and there. The car drove very smoothly and I was very pleased that all the controls needed for the radio and SYNC system were accessible right on the steering wheel. I liked the look of the odometer and speedometer because the lighting made it very easy to see. It was also very spacious with a large trunk. I drive approximately 80 miles round trip daily and I can always rely on my car to get me through a safe trip. The gas mileage on this car is also exellent. I never get less than 24 mpg. With highway travel I usually get at least 26 or 27 mpg. I have made many long trips with family and friends in my car it there was always plenty of room for everyone and their bags and the long ride was enjoyable. I would recommend this car to anyone!"
"Two little gripes had bad winshield wiper motor was not replaced until 3rd time I brought the car back to dealer.
The steering wheel leather wears thin very quickly.
But the ride, the economy, the sound system and did I mention economy? I am getting 35.5 overall now that its cold here in Philly. The car delivers best mileage in fall and spring when other accessories are not needed as much (air or Heat)closer to 40mpg"
"Hwy mileage @ 65 mph is 32mpg. I consider this good for a 240 hp v-6. The ride is very quiet and very comfortable. Too bad the Mercury line was discontinued. The Ford fusion doesn't compare in quality of interior materials and just plain looks cheap. The Milan Premiere compares in style to a BMW especially with the 18 in brushed aluminum trim instead of chrome. The white platnium clearcoat color is beautiful."
Pros: "great looks, always getting compliments, driving is a pleasure"
Cons: "those few upgrades I mentioned in my review"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"I returned to Ford/Mercury after a few years away and was glad I did. The quality of workmenship inside and out is close to perfect. I find myself enjoying long drives again. Very quiet, handles extremely well, and very little fatique factor afterwards. My one regret is that they are not making Mercury vehicles anymore. Even though I feel that a few minor upgrades would have made it better(HID lights, mirror turn signals, push button start), I am very pleased with my car."
