2005 Ford Five Hundred SEL AWD 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
Our first experience was a trip to Houston, got a rental car,a brand new 2005 Ford 500 which we have never heard of. We drove it over 400 miles in a few days and was very excited about the smoothest of ride and the space we had (a daughter-in-law and her two kids, my wife and I) all fit extremely well in this car. First time we have had that since one of my old 60's or 70's cars. We owned a 2002 Taurus SEL at the time. After we got home and had about a month to think about it, we decided we just had to have that car, so we went to see our friend at the dealership to make us a deal. We wanted exactly the same care we had rented. Extremely pleased.
The internal space, the special compartment on the dash and love the 5 speed Volvo transmission! A passing machine on the highway. Excellent handlng.
Ford, you out did yourselves. Don't know how you could improve on it. I am extremely surprised we have not seen more on the road. I think you missed the boat on the advertising and selling of this car. P.S. we have sold 4 other 2006 Ford 500's for you. They all love them, too
