2006 Ford Five Hundred SE 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
I bought this car an 06 SEL in 08. Had great miles on it and the car presented very well. Overall a great looking comfortable car. However it's all the cosmetic things that are ticking me off and now as of today I am getting a skipping occurence where the car is trying to hiccup?? going down the road. The engine light has now come on and we're going to be off to visit a mechanic soon. I'm not happy. Moreover, the driver's door keeps setting off an alarm that it's open when of course it's not going down a highway! and the car just frankly rides like crap. Very noisy ride. Won't do this again. Another let down from Ford.
Interior is nice and roomy. Exterior is very stylish and looks good.
Better components that represent the car's build. Obviously there are cheap parts behind the door panels, because I am once again having to track down leaks from inside the door panels on the back doors and the drivers door sensor continues to drive us crazy! I think the steering column needs to adjust more upward for a more conforming fit for taller drivers.
