2006 Ford Five Hundred SEL 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)
This car is a piece of junk, mechanically speaking. 60,000 mile, with 3 brake jobs, 1 alternator, 1 front wheel bearing, 2 idler arm ball joints and Fidelity Extended Insurance won't cover it, considered normal wear. What a crock. I will never purchase another Ford product.
Radio control on steering wheel
Use quality parts. Cannot change idler arm ball joints, you have to replace entire idler arm. A $1100 job plus front end alignment.
