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

Review

Third Ford that I have owned - step up from the Taurus. Now Ford plans to name this the Taurus due to lack of name recognition for 2008. Best car to have if you have a family. Higher off the ground that most sedans and consistently rates as one of the safest vehicles in a front and side collison. Gas mileage is acceptable, I have over 80,000 miles on my 2005. Live in MD and work in PA - 75 miles one way - average 28 mpg highway - have to love cruise control.

Favorite Features

Lots of room. Very easy to place multiple car seats securely. Large trunk. Smooth ride - great car for long drives. Seats are comfortable and easy on the back and backside.

Suggested Improvements

Engine is weak. Traveling on I 95 need to merge into traffic quickly and get to 65 mph ASAP. The acceleration does not respond well. Easy access to dash board componets. The light in my speedometer burned out. A full days job for the dealership in order to replace a $6 bulb.
