I am very happy with my 2006 Milan. It rides like a dream. It has great gas mileage. I get so many compliments on my 2006 Milan.
I drive to work daily and I usually see three or four Milan drivers. I have the chance the to make eye contact with a few of them and they have the same look that I have. A look of happiness.
I would recommend this car to everyone.
I recently downsized from a Chevy Surburban. So I gladly go to the gas station ONCE a week to fill up with only a whapping $45! My car is slow to take off, but once you get going is such a smooth ride. Like floating in air. Overall I am thoroughly enjoying my new ride.
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.
