2006 Ford Five Hundred SE 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
This car is comfortable, handles well, and is a tremendous winter car in Canada. It is bascially a Volvo S80 in disguise. Where else can you get huge interior space, a technologically advanced drive train, AWD and a CVT for this price. The only knock on the car is rapid depreciation. Since I own my cars for a long time, this is not an issue for me. I love it and would buy it again.
AWD - CVT transmission - interior comfort - strong gas mileage - well designed seats help with my back issues
I have some noise from the climate control system which is probably a design issue. Stability control would have been nice.
