2005 Ford Five Hundred SE Fwd 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)
I am so glad I decided to by my Five Hundred. It has been the perfect car for me. After 65,000 miles it is still running strong with no mechanical problems whats so ever. Nothing has gone wrong and I'm now glad I didn't get the exteneded warranty. I consistantly get 22-24 mpg and the awd not only saved me this winter but got me out of the mud at a concert when a bunch of other sedans got stuck in a muddy field! I have every intention of running this vehicle until it rolls over and dies, but it's going to be a long time from now.
AWD goes without saying, but the 20 gallon gas tank has been extremly convienant. I generally go about 425 miles between fill ups.
Ford should offer options outside of the package. I would haved loved a sunroof but didn't want the SEL package.
