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

Review

Bought this vehicle with 19k miles on the odometer and remaining factory warranty. For a small V-6 (3.0) it performed very well. The 6 speed auto always had a gear appropriate for the traffic needs. At 53000 miles the rear rotors went metal to metal. Found that many owners go through rear pads every 20k miles. Ford has offered a pad with slightly different material that lasts as long as 30k miles. I did the repair myself and found that it had already been done before. My wife and I are very conservative drivers so the "premature" brake wear was a real concern. At 53k miles after the brake issue, we found a large oil leak coming from the rear main seal area. Traded to a Chevrolet Impala

Favorite Features

Interior space like a limo!! Massive trunk capacity. Decent fuel economy for a 4000lb auto with a 3.0 liter V-6.

Suggested Improvements

Most of my concerns have been addressed with the changes made in 2008 when the vehicle became the "New Taurus".
