2006 Ford Five Hundred SEL 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)
Bought this car new in '06. Had an issue with the brakes from sitting on lot.
Dealer took care of this, and also preempted later recall.
An alignment issue used up rear tires by 15,000 miles . I was not happy with the dealers response which was basically an offer to sell me 4 tires and an alignment.
Bought tires and alignment elsewhere. Other than that, this car has been a champ. Have 70,000+ with no problems. The only thing I have done is to change the oil religiously, and I put new brakes on rear. Sent in last payment this month, so I guess I'll put in some plugs, change the belt, and flush the coolant. Great car.
Love the sunroof. The trunk is GI-NORMOUS.. I find the car quite peppy.
Like ALL modern cars, maintenance is a bitch. Have to pull intake manifold to access rear plugs.
