Ford has a Winner!

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

Review

Ford has neatly blended the key engineering features of an SUV and a family sedan to provide a unique vehicle that has the handling, surefootedness, and road visibility to provide a comfortable and confident ride in any weather. The incorporation of Volvo's frame, AWD system, and safety awareness combined with Ford's V6 3L engine and the CVT should make this sedan an attractive vehicle to a variety of consumers. All of this combined with a variety of useful instrumentation features gives this car the feel of a luxury sedan for an affordable price!! Gas mileage has been impressive so far- only driven 1000 miles but have averaged 19/28mpg. Not bad for an AWD with adequate power.

2 Weeks into a new car

2005 Ford Five Hundred SEL Fwd 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)

Review

I purchased a new 500 SEL a couple weeks ago becasue my 1997 Lincoln Mark VIII was totaled by a deer. Having been used to a large car, I was skeptical as to the roominess of the 500. I initially wanted a new '05 Mustang, but when I drive one I realized everything was small and tight. The 500 was huge compared to the Mustang. The only real drawback is the lack of legroom for front passengers (I'm 6'3"). I love the CD player and the view. The frontwheel drive is a bit touchy, and the pickup is quick, but whines alot. The exterior styling is great! Everyone says it looks super. I was the first in the area to get one, and am very happy I decided to go with it. Way to go Ford!

Best Car Ever Driven

Vehicle

2005 Ford Five Hundred Limited AWD 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl CVT)

Review

All you have to do is drive this car and feel how well it responds to you and the road to understand how great this car is. I went in to buy a suv and saw this on showroom floor and asked to drive it and bought it. It's a well thought out car with many options for storage inside to make your commute to wherever a fun and safe experience and easy on your wallet too for that drive in the countryside on the weekends. Take it for a test drive then you will understand.

perfect. Best vehicle I have ever owned. The room, quiestness, and overall build quality are second to none. I challenge anyone to find a better car for the money.

Just What I was expecting!
By Juan Romagosa on 11/08/04 15:29 PM (PST)

Vehicle

2005 Ford Five Hundred Limited AWD 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl CVT)

Review

The interior space I thought I could only find in the Expedition I had. I do not think you can get more car for your money. Ford read my mind in terms of design, craftmanship and engine response. It is difficult to find such a set of features in this price range. Features that are typical of much more expensive cars. I am extremely impressed!

Great changer for Ford

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

Review

Very nice car. I was very impressed with ford. I just came back from Europe which is showing a trend of more impressive cars made and designed by ford. I anticipate that this car will hold its value base on its change from the "Basic Ford" look and feel. Elagant interior that is roomy. Lots of gadgets.
