Ford made an '06 Taurus with a column shifter? Surely an automatic because it was a rental car.
Who ever thought they even had column shifters in the parts bin.
Then again, Mom's '91 Taurus GL had a column shifter.
Specs (like price and mileage) on the Mercury Milan when you have the time.
Glad you're OK.
How did the cops know how fast the Pacifica was going?
Glad your sister and BF are ok! I helped my daughter buy a 2011 Milan 2 years ago. Some common things that needed repair on her car were: Front springs cracked at the bottom, inside drivers door handle stopped working(Cheap easy fix), Trans cooler lines rotted and leaked bad very quickly. Trans lines were a bit pricey, but, sounds like this was already taken care of on your car. Other than those few things and the PITA passenger headlight bulb replacement it's been a great car.
