2006 Ford Five Hundred SE 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
I really like my Ford 500 limited. I enjoy the way you sit up high with a good view. Its a big roomy, safe feeling car, with a massive trunk. I've had mine in the shop for repairs several times over the rear brakes. They had to be replaced at 20,000 miles the 1'st time, and they are still noisy, like metal to metal at times.Ive had the motor in the drivers side electric window replaced, the dash compartment lid got bubbles in it and had to be replaced, my seat heater for drivers seat had to be replaced, Ive had the trunk looked at( hard to open), and now my radio, CD, clock, is not working, back to the shop.
You sit up high with a good view of the road. Safe feeling car. Very roomy interior. Huge trunk.
Fix the bugs! Fix the brakes! No way rear brakes should have to be replaced at 20,000 miles. And mine are still noisy. Like a metal to metal sound, grinding metal, not good on a new car. Talk about a head turner, have someone look at you in a new car when they hear that sound.
