Lost transmission at 72,000 miles
By dspindler on
2005 Ford Five Hundred SE Fwd 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)
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.
Comfortable ride, good sound system, 26 mpg on highway.
