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


Review

This car hits the mark in every category-it has loads of room, its fun to drive, and looks sharp.


Favorite Features

The interior space is roomy and laid out nicely. The trunk is huge plus the backs seats fold down. The CVT is smooth and the pick up is solid when you need it.


Suggested Improvements

satellite radio and dvd

This car has it all for a great price. Honda's, Toyota's and Lexus can't even compare especially when you look at the value and quality/features of this All Wheel Drive sedan. Splendid!!!

Review

Overall, the Ford 500 is an exceptional vehicle. Some improvements that could be made, more horsepower, better sound system...(Bose)...change the grill...get rid of the Ford emblem in the grill and replace it with a hood ornamant...and offer pearl white on the Limited version..with these few minor changes, this car would truly be a world class touring car!

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


Review

We just bought the car yesterday and now all our neighbors are asking what it is. The style is beautiful and the handling is even better. We always drove Ford products but this is the best.


Favorite Features

The style of the interior and the exterior. The size of the car and the trunk.


Suggested Improvements

Some more horsepower.

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


Review

I just purchased the SEL model of the Five Hundred. It is very roomy and comfortable, and has enough power to get me up to speed quickly. It handles well, and is fun to drive. I love the leg room and head room. The faux wood paneling is very nice, and accents the interior very well.


Favorite Features

The steering wheel mounted controls for the cruise and radio are very nice. Easy to get to and you can pretty much keep your eyes on the road now. The dual air controls is a very nice touch, as my fiance and I have different temperature preferences.


Suggested Improvements

I can't think of anything I would improve on my model (SEL) of the Five Hundred.

Review

The exterior design looks imposing and has a vast interior. The truck is enless perferct for a growing family. Some of the features could be improved. Was time for Ford to come with a different alternative for a large sedan in addition to the old Taurus.


Favorite Features

Fuel economy, large truck, and interior space.


Suggested Improvements

Power lock, and window plastic buttons material should be improved. Satellite navigation will be a plus in a future.

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


Review

What other AWD full size sedan is available for less than $30k and fairly well equipped? An excellent car for the price. CVT is a unique feature that will, for some, take some getting used to. Be sure to check out foot space on both driver and passenger sides before buying. Plenty for me, but others might not think so. And why, Ford, no Sirius Satellite Radio? No stability control? And only the 3.0? Still, a great value and I am well satisfied, so far. Reliability remains to be proven, but may well be better than average. For this car to succeed, it must be reliable!


Favorite Features

AWD. The CVT. HUGE trunk. Well put together.


Suggested Improvements

Sirius Satellite Radio. A larger engine as an option. Stability control. Some will want navigation.
