Introduced in 2004, the Mercury Monterey bid farewell during August of the 2007 model year.
The Monterey is driven by a 201-horsepower 4.2L V6 engine and is equipped with a four-speed automatic transmission. Anti-lock brakes and air bags covering three rows of passengers are the notable standard safety equipment. Luxury features included in the base price are a roof rack, fog lamps, power sliding doors, a power driver seat, power adjustable pedals, and dual zone air conditioning.
The Comfort Package, attractively priced at a net cost of $550, adds automatic temperature control, a universal garage door opener, a power front passenger seat, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. Other optional luxury items include heated and cooled front leather seats, a power liftgate, and a rear seat DVD entertainment system. Enhanced safety can be provided through AdvanceTrac with brake assist and traction control, and the available trailer tow package enables the Monterey to haul as much as 3,500 pounds. When ordered together with the standard fold-into-the-floor third row of seats and the optional rear cargo management system, the Monterey proves to both versatile and comfortable.
The move follows NHTSA ordering Ford to conduct the safety recall.
These latest safety campaigns include the Ford E-Series and Mercury Milan, as well.
The brake pedal may not work properly in these 2006-2010 sedans.
It's going to be a long time before this problem goes away.
