Review of the 2005 Ford Five Hundred

  • Roomy, stylish and practical, the Five Hundred is well suited for family duty, but with its mediocre engine performance and interior materials, it's simply one of many solid choices in the under-$30,000 price bracket.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Spacious cabin, huge trunk, smooth ride quality, available all-wheel drive, plenty of safety features.

Transmission problems

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Ford Five Hundred SEL AWD 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl CVT)

I purchased my 07 FFH SEL in April of 2012 with 33,000mi on it, and I have noticed that the tranni slips when I accelerate from a complete stop, or from 1-2mph. But not all the time. Most of the time it's a nice ride. I have to treat her like a baby. And now at 54,000mi they are telling me I need to replace the brakes. I just got this car less than a year ago! I had to sell my F150, because someone hit me from behind and sheered back the steal back bumper. So I got rid of it . But it was a beautiful truck, except I had to replace the transmission at around 95,000-98,000mi. on that one. I have read that ford overall has had tranni problems though. I should have known to check the FH.

Poor transmission

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Ford Five Hundred SEL AWD 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl CVT)

bought with less than 30,000 miles. pervious owner had great record keeping on maintenance. Almost immediately started noticing weird things with transmission. It is very hazardous. Had a few close calls with car not speeding up when turning onto roads. It is mainly acceleration problems. Would not buy this or Taurus model in the future. Probably not any ford model. Ran into other owners with exact problem same problem.




Great daily driver

Vehicle: 2005 Ford Five Hundred SEL AWD 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl CVT)

This is a great family car and daily driver. Much more personality than an Asian appliance car. Maintenance was easy and low cost, and interior fit and finish are good. The rear brakes had issues with pad life but Wagner Thermoquiet fixed that. I like the CVT, took some getting used to, and with regular fluid changes, at 100K miles I have no issues.
