I love the Mercury Milan Premier. It is very comfortable and I love the built in Sirius radio. Great radio, comfortable seating, looks sharp. The gears slip a bit but I think I am still just getting used to driving it. Also, the keyless entry code did not come with the car and it would be nice if I could use that feature. Great price and overall, great value.
An earlier review commented on driver headroom. I wanted to offer a different perspective. I'm 6' and have headroom to spare, and I do have the sun roof. I would recommend a test drive to decide for yourself. The ride of the Milan is great and interior quality is impressive. The leather seats are inviting and supportive over long distances. I took a 5 hour trip last week and had no issues with back or leg fatigue. Handling is great and adapts between highway and lower speed driving. Steering is sharp and responsive, handling turns at speed with ease. Performance is good, though I would expect a little better MPG from this engine transmission combo. I averaged 24 mpg over the past month. On my 5 hour trip, I was on the interstate and got around 28 mpg. The 6 speed transmission is responsive, which is a good thing because it won't hesitate to grab a lower gear when needed. At first I was a little light on the accelerator as it is not as responsive as I am accustomed to. I figured out with the traction control system (TCS), I could be more generous with the throttle as the TCS will help ensure grip even under hard start line acceleration. One of my favorite additions to this car is the Sync system. The system integrates phone and ipod/mp3 players, all of which you can control using voice commands. There is an integrated USB to plug your device into or you can use a line in jack and 12 volt adaptor. Bluetooth is also integrated for handsfree cell phone use and can even stream music, using a compatible device. To make a long story short, its really cool! Overall the Milan is an incredible value for the dollar. I challenge you to find a car with this much quality, performance, and all the bells and whistles for under $20k.
The Milan is a superb vehicle. I am unaccustomed to the luxury this vehicle has to offer, but I could get used to it. The only down side to the Milan is, for some people the 4 cylynder engine may be underpowered for this size of car. Perfect for me but I have a very "light" foot.
