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


Review

After 6,000 miles I am very satisfied with my Ford Five Hundred. I have a fully loaded AWD Limited. The amount of options and features available for the price is an excellent value. I purchased this vehicle when gas prices were at their peak in hopes to achieve better MPG than my F-150. I am very satisfied with the MPG I am getting (about 19/20 city). I would recommend this vehicle to anyone who is in the market for a sedan. I have an issue with the electronics in the instrument panel and interior lighting that causes the lights to dim and flicker periodically. I am not sure if this is a widespread problem or if I have a faulty component.


Favorite Features

AWD is excellent in the snow. Navigation system is very easy to use. DVD player is a added benefit to the already large rear seat area. Interior is very well laid out.


Suggested Improvements

Bolder exterior styling. Dual exhaust and at least 30 more horsepower would make this car more fun to drive. A subwoofer would greatly benefit the sound system to add more bass.

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


Review

I drive about 2500 miles per month and I have had occasion to be in the car as long as 11 hours with just short stops. By far this is one of the most comfortable cars I have ever driven. Love the pep on the highway, cruise is constant and does not drift. Best car Ford has ever put on the road!


Favorite Features

Love it all, huge trunk, enormous back seat, leather interior and sun roof.


Suggested Improvements

None.

I have own this car for 7 months and I love it. The excellent mileage and the comfort of the seating speaks volumes for the Ford engineers. All of the new amenities show Ford is committed to providing cars American can be proud of.


Favorite Features

Driver and passenger seats are easy to position, entry and exits have minivan ease.


Suggested Improvements

Locking center console and less corner roll.

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


Review

I really think the engine is more than large enough. The 'strain' that I hear other talking about seem to be engine noise, which is significant even when simply taking-off from a stop at moderate acceleration.


Favorite Features

Interior room, handling, all the 'extras', some optional, most standard, wheel base for greater acceleration, height of driving position.


Suggested Improvements

Sunglass holder is worthless. Needs better exterior curves and some body molding.

Review

My wife went from Independence Missouri to Saint Louis Missouri and had a 1/4 tank left.That is a 8 hour drive. Because it does not come with side airbags we thought it would be unsafe and were looking at a 2007 Honda Accord.The 2007 Accord gets 4 stars crash test rating with side steel beams and airbags. My 2006 Ford 500 with NO airbags gets 5 stars. Consumers Reports has it as a recommended buy and me and my family agrees. If you want a sedan that is comfortable with an incredible amount of trunk space that gets good gas mileage this is the car for you.


Favorite Features

DVD player, smooth ride, exceptional gas mileage, huge trunk, and comfortable seats.


Suggested Improvements

With only a little over 200 hp that is the only weakness to my wife. I just simply chill. Heard that the 2008 will get a 265 hp engine. Then it would be perfect.
