Poor transmission
By menchaca on


2005 Ford Five Hundred SEL AWD 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl CVT)


bought with less than 30,000 miles.
pervious owner had great record keeping on maintenance.
Almost immediately started noticing weird things with transmission.
It is very hazardous.
Had a few close calls with car not speeding up when turning onto roads.
It is mainly acceleration problems.
Would not buy this or Taurus model in the future.
Probably not any ford model.
Ran into other owners with exact problem same problem.

what you are saying is dead on. I had the same issues with the transmission. There is a reason why you find these on dealer lots with such low miles.
