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


The interior design of this car was
very well thought out. Everything is
within easy reach and logically
placed. The seating position is a
little odd initially (raised app. 3-4
inches higher than other sedans) but
is very comfortable on any length
trip. The rear seat legroom is
outstanding and the width and shape
allows 3 adults abreast fairly
comfortably. The exterior design is
fresh and clean, but not awe-
inspiring. Engine power is adequate
and the 6-speed automatic is quite
smooth. Handling is crisp and
precise, but the lateral support of
the front seats is lacking. Gas
mileage has been averaging 25-32,
depending on conditions. Overall, a
solid choice for many baby-boomers.

Best Features

Seat Height, Rear Seat Legroom, in- dash 6 disc CD Changer, Overall interior ergonomics, HUGE trunk.

Worst Features

Increase lateral support in front seats, exterior design looks like a VW Passat on steroids.
