The camry V6 is much quieter than 4cyl version.
Show me the numbers, not your opinions!!!
#5 of 218 How about Ford 500?!!

Thanks guys. Looks like you're more in favor of Camry. However, I actually did some more homework, found Ford 500 probably(?) a better choice, kind of same price with current discounts. Any ideas?

Discounts such as those that are prevalent on the domestic makes errode the resale market. Always remember to think....Why is it being discounted?

I am sure no one will argue that the Camry is a great car as is the Accord. I looked at the Mazda 6, Honda Accord, Camry and Milan and am buying the Milan. For the money, it seems to be a great value and the reviews are excellent. The six cylinder is quieter than the 4 cylinder and seemed very smooth.
Test drove the Mazda and did not care for the braking or the noisy engine; just my opinion.

Toyota offers discounts too...?? They have cash back and special finance offers also...
The 500/Montego is a sleeper. These cars are rate well, for safety and reliability. Some say the 3.0 v6 isn't enough power. Ford is putting a 3.5 in the 500 this fall. May want to wait if you can. But you may feel the 3.0 is enough for you.. Test drive one..

The 500/Montego is a sleeper. Hope they aren't asleep at the wheel when next to a new Camry 3.5

The Camry styling is just now becoming halfway sporty and appealing.. Even the Avalon was a "sleeper" as you may call it.
The 500/Montego are actually turing out to be very good cars. Very safe cars that have value in mind.
So, How much HP/Torque is enough for you in a family sedan? 275HP? 300HP? 500HP? Where does it end? I look for balance in the drive train. More HP is not always better. I can still remember when the Accord hit the 200HP mark and the rave and ranting reviews that is was the end all to any other brand of family sedan... I guess when we hit 1000HP family sedans the media will be happy??

I purchased the Milan Premier and am more than please with my decision. Its nice and quiet on the highway. It has a smooth ride. It is a nice car for the money. Ill be honest I like the styling on it too. Its also great on gas.
I recently took it on a trip to the Florida Keys from Miami. (aprox time 3 hrs) If anyone has driven to the Keys they know that the cops there ticket you for barely breaking the speed limit. I put the cruise control at 45 and was getting over 40 MPG according to the in dash reading.
I got the extended warranty on mine so that I wouldnt have to worry down the road about it going bad.
#12 of 218 Milan V6's transmission
Jul 29, 2006 (4:43 pm)
Ford buys the 06 Milan/Fusion V6's transmissions (6-speed) from the same supplier who supplies 6-speed transmissions to Toyota (in Avalon/Lexus I think). The Ford 3.0L 24V DOHC engine has been around since mid-90 and it has been modifid/refined. Bottom line, it is solid/reliable powertrain.
