#1 of 50 Milan Problem
Aug 01, 2006 (10:20 pm)
I have a 2006 Milan and I am having a problem with this horrible road noise comming from the right tire or somewhere in that area. I brought it into the dealership and they told me it was the Characteristics of those tires. I am wondering what you people think and if anyone else has had this problem. And one more thing i was woundering what type of tires are on your cars so i can get back to the dealership. I have michelin tires on mine Hopefully i can get this solved and thanks for the help to all.

Hi there! I had a very similar problem with my brand new car. I took it back to the dealership three times and on the last was told the loud whining noise I heard from 30 miles an hour was a characteristic of the Milan. my reply was, you can tell me Mercury made a mistake when they made my car, but don't even try telling me that a loud whine that sounds like a woman screaming is a characteristic of a brand new car. I then went to the service desk and asked them to look for hot fixes on the computer. I recieved a call from Joe the service desk at Holman Ford Lincoln Mercury, saying that a very obscure little dealership in some way out place had found a fix for the problem. They asked me to come back in, and they tied down the drive shaft, with parts sent by Ford. I have had not one peep out of the car since then and it is now a pleasure to drive. DO NOT TAKE NO for an answer. Have your dealership call Joe Brodey the service desk at Holman Lincoln Mercury in Maple Shade, NJ. Though they still insist it was a characteristic noise, why would they fix it if it was? There is no such thing as a characteristic noise in a new car. And let me tell you, I came within an inch of selling the car back to them and telling them I was going to start a website for dissatisfied Milan owners. Good Luck and don't take no for an answer!

There should be a sticker either in the glove compartment or on on of the door frames that lists the cold tire pressure that the manufacturer recommends. I don't own a Fusion or Milan, but these are the standard places that manufacturer tire pressure is posted on Ford/Mercury vehicles.

You need to contact your dealer and make sure they did a PDI on your car before you took delivery.
Tire presures are set High for shipment so flat spots don't happen in transit. (extreme cold drops tire presure)
Always check your tire presure when the tires are COLD.

When in doubt use 32. 38 is far too hard and you risk damage to tires and suspension as well as the stiff ride.
