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


Review

This car is now within a few hundred miles of 100k. Other reviewer's comments regarding braking are very interesting to me. All of my driving life (I am 82) I have driven with the attitude that whatever hurts my car hurts my pocketbook. With very few exceptions I have stuck with Ford automobiles and have never experienced what I would classify as poor braking. In the case of this car the only brake repair was at 29000 miles, when the rear pads and rotors were replaced under the warranty. I now expect that the brakes will be carefully examined with the 100k servicing. Regarding service, I religiously conform to the manufacturer/s recommendations and maintain the car at the ford dealership. I anticipate what is ahead of me while driving, I do not charge traffic lights to beat the red, and I conform to the law as much as possible. I believe this has saved me a lot of money over the years. This car is one of the best I have ever owned.

Review

Make sure that it has been well maintained. The struts will wear out and should be replaced. The car handling, comfort etc is beyond most peoples expectation; if you take care of it.

Review

This is the most dependable care I've ever owned. Its only been I the shop once for a transmission issue at about 230,000 miles and it cost $1200 to fix it. I'd still be driving it if a tree didn't jump in front of it.

Review

I bought my five hundred with 98xxx miles. Now have135xxx replaced brakes only once, alternator, and motor mount. Been very reliable and gets amazing gas mileage. Made it from maryland to Michigan on 1 tank.....515mi.....amazing. Fit everything for a beach vacation in the trunk for 4 people. Only downside is some fixes are expensive from repair shops(alternator). I would absolutely recommend this car to anybody!

Review

I bought this car in 2013 with 175k for 5k. I haven't had to fix a thing. Runs perfect and very comfy ride. Zero rust. Weak in the power but I don't care. I drive a lot for work so I just need a reliable car with a great ride. This car is perfect for that.

Update--5-7-17

246k miles and still no issues at all

Update 6-22-18

267k replaced the alternator 400$
still running perfectly
