Just came back from a trip to Chattanooga, to pick up my(new to me) car. This is my first Mercury Product, I have owned nothing but Fords...except for my first car which was a 1976 Gremlin. I saw a good deal in another city and we took a road trip from Atlanta to Chattanooga to get it. It was a straight up cash sale, the money I got for my totalled Focus paid for this car, I still have some $$$ left for the ad valorum and get the windows tinted. I got a 2010 Mercury Milan( stablemate to the Fusion). The car is a little bigger and rides a LOT better. got more options and far less miles than my departed Focus. Can't complain though....I walked away from my accident.
