2007 Ford Five Hundred SEL 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)
When I first drove the 500, it was a pleasant experience. My first impression was that it was a nice, large sedan that handles well, despite the "plain brown wrapper" design. Then I drove back home. I live in a rural area on a dirt road. All the roads in my area are dirt. Dirt turns to mud, and that's when the 500 starts to slip and slide. It is terrifying to drive this car on anything other than smooth, dry pavement. Big problems in the handling. Yikes! Also, my knees bump the dash. I'm short, so by the time the seat is up far enough, there is no leg room left.
Really roomy interior and amazing trunk space. Nice instrumentation. User friendly.
AWD should be standard on all the 500s. Adjustable pedals, like on the big trucks.
