Ready for an '08
By J Jennings on
2005 Ford Five Hundred Limited AWD 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
Bought this car one day and put 1500 miles on it starting the next day. Handled great in all types of terrain. Mountains of N.Y. and New England, and interstate highways. Since purchase it has been in the shop for bubble in dash storage, one recall, and all 4 wheel covers replaced for peeling clear coat. All replaced under warranty. 30,000 miles the rear brakes were worn out but front were fine. Nothing major that would stop me from purchasing another 500. Gas mileage, comfort, and style all great. AWD only let me get stuck in snow once. Hope Ford keeps building this vehicle.
Comfort, trunk space, handling, and CVT transmission.
More sound proofing, take care of brake problems, and make more tire options available for the 18 inch wheels.
