Used Car: 2009 Mercury Milan Review
Thanks to its excellent safety and reliability ratings, engaging handling and available all-wheel drive, the 2009 Mercury Milan is a great used car. The Milan is also a good midsize car for families who are looking for a spacious, feature-packed interior.
The 2009 Mercury Milan is ranked:
When it was new, test drivers liked the 2009 Mercury Milan’s dynamic handling, linear brakes and strong available V6 engine. The Milan also received praise for its interior, which features comfortable seats, a two-tone color palette, upscale materials and large trunk.
Now that the Mercury brand has been discontinued, you may be able to find a better deal on a used Mercury than on its used Ford counterpart. Keep in mind though, that if you plan to resell your Mercury, it may not hold its value as well as a Ford. If good fuel economy is high on your list, the 2009 Mercury Milan’s fuel economy is less than what many of its rivals offer.
The front-wheel drive Mercury Milan has either a four-cylinder or V6 engine. A five-speed manual is standard and a five- and six-speed automatic are also available. Six airbags and anti-lock brakes are standard on the 2009 Milan. Traction control is standard on V6 models and electronic stability control is available on all Milan models. All-wheel drive was available on V6 models.
Other Cars to Consider
The 2009 Toyota Camry is a good car to consider if you’re exploring the Mercury Milan. Both cars are sensible, safe, reliable and spacious, which makes them good for many types of used car shoppers, particularly families. The Milan has a more upscale cabin, so if high-quality appointments are important to you, the Camry’s interior, though not cheap or poor-quality, might disappoint. The 2009 Milan has a performance edge over the 2009 Camry because of its sporty handling, and it also earns a slightly higher reliability rating, but the Camry’s fuel economy surpasses the Milan’s.
The 2009 Ford Fusion is practically identical to the 2009 Mercury Milan. These sister cars vary little, though auto critics thought the Milan’s cabin is a step up in quality over the Fusion’s. Both cars share many of the same parts, equipment and style; however the Fusion earns a slightly higher reliability rating. It’s worth widening your search to include used Fusions and Milans since both cars are so similar.
