2005 Ford Five Hundred Sedan Limited Fwd 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


Review

love this car.will never sell it make it factor original show car no after market add ons ever. i get up to 35 miles to the gallon on hwy. its just a cool car, ford had waited to long to design a car like this and then they cancel it after 3 years somethings wrong with their management. this car will always remain in my family, thank you for making the Ford 500 limited edition.


Best Features

the dual climate control, love the no key in the trunk access, it makes the car look great with no keyhole, in the trunk. The controls on the steering wheel, and the digital readout panel on the dash and the overall design of the dash and instrument panels is very nice, like the heated seats.


Worst Features

Wish they would have put in oil pressure gauge and voltage gauge in the dash.

Review

I just finished putting on the third set of Ford factory rear brake pads and rotors. My car has 81000 miles on it. Something wrong with this picture. It's not the calipers replaced them the second time.


Best Features

Lot's of inside room and lot's of trunk space.


Worst Features

Do something about the brakes. They DO NOT last............

Review

I love my 500. It feels like a pricey luxury vehicle with all the bells and whistles. 6-disc CD changer, adjustable pedals, leather seats, oh my! I got this baby used and it was still in perfect condition. The performance is slightly lacking but it's not a race car, after all. This car is a beauty and it drives like a charm.


Best Features

Big tires, adjustable pedal, steering wheel radio controls.


Worst Features

Little bit more umph! in the gas pedal.

Review

for starters i bought this car brand new, and instantly had issues till its demise. i experienced the wonderful brake drag issue, the so called auto up window game (which is awesome in negative temperatures), the battery constantly lost its charge, replace battery, and repeat, ford never figured it out. then one day the a/c stopped. which in arizona summers is not really that neccessary (haha) they threw parts at it until they replaced everything, and then viola, it worked, and they never knew what did it. running synthetic oil only i had the most beautiful tapping sound under the hood, which was a tsb, but for refused to address. out of all the tsb's for the car 2 got fixed.


Best Features

the exterior always made people ask, "what is that?", the interior, other than the shotty heated seats, was great, perfect amount of room, front and rear. this carwas loaded with all the bells and whistles. quality was decent, nothing to write home about.


Worst Features

ford customer service was the worse experience i have ever gone through. they were unhelpful and unwilling to help me with my problems. granted i put 55k miles on it in a year, but the thing should hold up. i paid 33k otd.

Review

Bought new in 2006, love it. Am so glad I did not buy another Toyota Avalon, which had expensive 3.0V6 engine problems over and over. Ford was much better bargain in purchase price and maintenance. Now it has 48,000 miles, so far, not one problem. I average 25.2-MPG driving mainly California freeway. Nobody knows what it is. Everywhere I go people comment how cool it looks which is funny, because all the magazine reviewers slammed is "boring" styling. This was a terrific buy I would recommend to anyone.


Best Features

Looks, room, MPG
