About Mercury Montego

The Montego is Mercury's newest family sedan. Although the Grand Marquis is still the king of the hill at Mercury, the Montego is arguably the better sedan. Based on the same platform as the Ford Five Hundred, the Montego offers a bit more style and personality than its Ford twin, a helpful advantage in a segment crowded with worthy competitors. With a larger rear seat and a larger trunk than the full-size Grand Marquis, the Montego seems the more logical of the two. The Montego offers a frugal six-cylinder engine, as opposed to the Grand Marquis' V8, as well as the option of all-wheel drive and a revolutionary continuously variable automatic transmission.

"I bought the Montego in 2006, I purchased the vehicle because of the perceived build quality and dependability. I have not been disappointed. After 62000 miles, I have changed the oil (5000 miles), replaced the air filter (12000 miles), replaced the brakes once, and one set of tires. The car is very well built and now she is five years old and looks great, too include the paint and interior materials. The Montego drives very nicely, both in the city and on the Highway. The engine is a bit under powered, the car prefers to cruise at about 68 on the highway, but it can easily handle higher speeds. The midsize vehicle has more interior space than larger cars. I am 6' 4", I can sit behind myself in the Montego and have plenty of leg room. The car lacks an exciting exterior design, subsequently it is not in demand, I will not sell my Montego because it is extremely undervalued in the used car market. If you should be lucky enough to find one, and are looking for quality, dependable transportation, buy a Montego, probably the best used car for the money in the market. MPG is better than the advertised 19/29. I have reached 33 MPG on the highway (ave speed 68)."

"I have had several problems with this car. The car is now four years old with 105,000 miles on it and the a/c compressor has gone out. The transmission is also starting to give me problems. i think the quality of this vehicle is very poor. I have researched other owners who have experienced the same problems as myself but at a lower mileage (usually between 60,000 - 80,000)."

"I purchased my new 2005 AWD/CVT Mercury Montego in Sept. 2005. Here it is 2013 and I am still on the original battery! I did replace the tires. I love this car, from the extra large mirrors to the hooks in the trunk -- features not found on many new cars today. I have serviced my car every 3,000-4,000 miles and have kept her nice & clean. I have more than enough power and the CVT transmission has served me well. I will never trade this car."
