my sweet ford =)
By Tiffaney on
2006 Ford Five Hundred SEL 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
I bought my car about 2 weeks ago, and I absolutely love it. It's my first big investment, considering I'm 20 years old. I was previously driving a 2000 hyundai elantra, the transition was amazing! As soon as I sit my fanny in the seat I feel super safe. The breaks are wonderful, the interior, is B.E.A.UTIFUL. I don't know much about transmissions but the CVT transmission gives me a really smooth acceleration, no feeling of gears switching, the road sound is a very low hum, unlike the roar I heard in the hyundai. The only downfall to this vehicle is the gas mileage, I was under the impression that it did pretty well, in my brief experience I only get 21 mpg highway, and city.
The comfort of the seats, the controls on the wheel, acceleration... heck, all of it!!
More fuel efficient would be nice =) other than that. A+++ ford. I'm truly impressed.
