2006 Ford Five Hundred Limited 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I purchased mine last July. I have just over 9,000 miles now and it has never been back to any dealership. Two synthetic oil changes and one air filter. Most comfortable and reliable. The only reasons I'd buy new!


Best Features

Everything came in twos. The moonrood/cd changer, the merlot metallic/black leather interior, Pirellis on 18" rims, cream guages & clock/faux burled accents, steering wheel controls, roomy front and rear and trunk! Engine compartment easy to service.


Worst Features

If you take a Porsche designed liquid- cooled V-6 quattrovalve engine, mate it to the same 6-speed tranny built by a division of Toyota that's also in the Mini Cooper, and mount them onto a Volvo platform what improvement would I want? A RWD V-8 400HP Five Hundred Limited priced like the Pontiac GTO.

2006 Ford Five Hundred Limited 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


Review

The Limited is comfortable and economical. I am not one for all the hype about more power. There is enough power for sensible driving in my situation. On two long trips, 2900 miles for 2 persons and 850 miles for 4 persons through Texas and the central Mid West, the transmission did downshift when using cruise on the rolling hills. The first time it downshifted two gears at 80 mph (2200 rpm to almost 4000 rpm) surprised me. We were all comfortable during these trips. We bought this car to get away from using a large SUV as our primary car. With the rolling hills and a heavy load with air on we get about 26 mpg on the highway, on level ground and normal load it is near the 29 mark.


Best Features

Large seating and trunk, economy, comfort, looks.


Worst Features

Look at the cruise control design to minimize the shifting on rolling highway hills.

2006 Ford Five Hundred SE 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl CVT)


Review

This car has lots of room and great to have with 2 kids. The problems that we have had though is that they have already had to replace the radio. It would just go out and have no sound with it. Now we are having problems with the windows not working. I don't know if we just got a lemon or if this is a manufacturing problem. If the windows are working, I love this car.


Best Features

The huge trunk, plenty of room for my 6'4" husband to sit in the back seat and entertain kids, room for 3 people in the back.


Worst Features

Windows need to work all the time, Radio doesn't need to be replaced after only a year.

None. They got it right.
