A very very comfortable car

2007 Ford Five Hundred Limited 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
All in all, very little to complain about after 5000 miles. Factory CD failed on first use, but replaced. Very comfortable to be in, although larger drivers may find their right leg too close to the center console. Complaints by critics about styling/power have proven unwarranted. People like the look of the car and haven't found acceleration lacking with CVT/engine pairing. Handling is OK, not great, but ride is better than that. It is not silent at highway speeds, but not really a problem. Plenty of interior storage, huge trunk, elevated seating position; it's (mostly) all good.
Surprisingly, the backup sensors. Very good stereo, although speed volume control doesn't seem to work. CVT transmission.
Shave the center console and/or move the accelerator away from it. Better noise-dampening.
