Lost transmission at 72,000 miles
By dspindler on
Vehicle
2005 Ford Five Hundred SE Fwd 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)
Review
Nuff said about that. I did research AFTER I bought the car. Had I realized the transmission failures were so common on the 05 I never would have bought it. I didn't realize this was the first year for the CVT. I believe that is why the 500 was moved to the Taraus nameplate. Ford told me to pound sand. Paid $4200 for new transmission. At least I got a 3 year, 100,000 mile warranty with it. Last Ford for me.
Favorite Features
Comfortable ride, good sound system, 26 mpg on highway.
Suggested Improvements
Transmission (D'oh!)
