FThere are plenty of reasons to switch from a compact car to a minivan. If you have a growing family, minivans are a great vehicle because they are low to the ground, allowing small children to easily hop in and out. Or maybe you don’t have kids yet, but you do have a lot of supplies to transport for fun activities like road trips or camping. Good news: you can carry it all in a minivan! Minivans may not be the “coolest” cars around, but they are practical, comfortable, and convenient. If you’re ready to swap out your smaller car for a minivan, check out this week’s Goodwill Auto Auction, where we’re featuring a 2005 Mercury Monterey.
This 2005 Mercury Monterey has an automatic transmission and a 4.2-liter, V6 engine that produces 201 horsepower. It has four doors and comfortable, supportive seating for up to seven. Easy, smooth handling and a quiet drive make the Monterey a smart choice for long highway drives or the daily commute to work or school.
Standard safety features on the 2005 Mercury Monterey include ABS brake and dual front side and front impact airbags. In crash safety tests, the Mercury Monterey earned five stars in driver front, passenger front, and rear side-impact tests. On average, the Monterey offers a fuel economy of 16 MPG in the city and 21 MPG on the highway.
