Quite A Lot Of Bang For The Buck! by Jason
 — Great car, great gas mileage (30+ on the highway!), and I really love the looks inside and out. So comfortable on road trips, and lots of room, yet it doesn't drive like a tank. My only complaints a... Read More

2006 Mercury Milan

Mercury hasn't put out a new mid-size sedan in a long time, and its new Mercury Milan aims directly at the Camry and Accord segment.  Sharing many characteristics with the cheaper Ford Fusion, the front-wheel drive luxury Milan is the most affordable Mercury offered, and it tries to appeal to both a younger urban crowd and families wanting a bit of upscale comfort.  It is available in either a Base or Premium trim, with two Duratec engines -- a 160-hp 2.3-liter I4 or 221-hp, 3.0 V6.  The I4 is mated to either a 5-speed manual or automatic, while the V6 comes only with a 6-speed automatic.  ABS brakes and dual front-side and side curtain airbags help earn 4-star crash ratings.

Inside, the 2006 Milan is fairly roomy for four adults, with split-folding rear seats and a trunk pass-through opening onto a 15 cubic foot trunk.  Base models have full power features, plus a 6-way power driver's seat, MP3 capability, and cruise control.  The Premier is adorned with two-tone leather seats and a CD changer, and rides on larger 17-inch wheels.  Many owners like the style, which is sophisticated, yet sporty, with a choice of either satin aluminum or wood trim.  Mercury also tries to sport up the exterior.  Wraparound headlights surround the signature waterfall grille, and the rear end boasts LED taillights and dual exhausts.

Drivers don't seem disappointed with the 2006 Milan, and see it as an affordable luxury car with many creature comforts.  The interior is spacious and handling is tight and responsive.  The V6 seems to perform reasonably well, but the I4 feels underpowered, according to owners.  Other complaints mention poor rear visibility and the low fuel economy.
