2006 Mercury Montego Problems

Harsh or Delayed Shifting of Automatic Transmission

The automatic transmission may develop shifting concerns. On lower mileage vehicles, upgrading the software in the powertrain control module (PCM) and the transmission control module (TCM) may correct the problem. As the mileage increases, internal transmission damage can occur. Repairs could involve replacement of the valve body or a complete transmission rebuild. Whenever major transmission repairs are made, it is important to be sure the PCM and the TCM have the latest software updates to help prevent these issues from reoccurring.

Rear Brakes Wear Out Abnormally Fast

If the rear brakes wear out abnormally fast, this can be caused by defective rear brake pads. The rear wheels may also appear to become excessively dusty. They should be replaced with revised brake pads, and all wheel drive (AWD) vehicles should replace front brake pads as well.

Transmission Shifter is Hard To Move

Binding of the shifter slider can make the transmission shifter difficult to move. Replacing the bezel should fix this problem.

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
