CVT Transmission = Worthless

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


Our family has owned many ford products but this one is a great disappointment. This car has been at a Ford dealership since June. The transmission went and Ford wants $5500 -$6500.00 to put in a new transmission that comes from China. Ford will not help in anyway. The looks beautiful but is not drivable. My daughter and I could have been killed on the turnpike because the car slipped into neutral when you tried to get above 50mph. Greatly disappointed with Ford.

Exterior and interior

Worst Features

Ford could use a transmission that is American made. Only the dealership is able to provide and care for this Trans. which makes it very costly.
