2006 Mercury Montego Reviews

Bought Montego Premier new from dealer in 2006 with CVT and AWD. 141k miles and still running well. Great in snow and ice. Only maintenance has been brakes, tires & fluid changes, including extra special ATF (only available at dealer). Not too sporty, but for our family, this car has been extremely dependable transportation year round.
My wife and I own two Mercury Montego's from 2006. One has 107,000 miles the other 72,000 miles. The only problems we had was seat heat sensor and air conditioner compressor. These cars both Premier awd have been the best cars we ever had. I wish they would make them again.
132k on the car and engine blew up along with trans slipping as well
