Great Car - Very Underrated
By Jerry on
2007 Ford Five Hundred SEL 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)
I have had three Honda Accords. I decided to buy a used Ford 500 versus the new 2008 Accord based upon value. This car is great. It drives well and has lots of room - lots of compliments from riders about the room. My family enjoys the car, too. Safety ratings were a big reason for purchasing as well. Fuel economy has been very good. Consistently 20-21 in town. On the highway between 29 and 32 (I did get 32.5 on one trip). Overall, this is a great car. Although many in the press have not given favorable responses, many owners like me seem to think this is a highly underrated car - a diamond in the rough. SEL package is nicely equipped. Great A/C system in hot climate.
Sunroof, stick-to-the-road feel of the ride, fuel economy, roominess, trunk capacity
Slightly higher power at low speeds. Cupholder for center occupant in rear seat.
