2006 Ford Five Hundred SE 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl CVT)


I bought this car at the end of the 2006 modely year and have enjoyed it a lot. The car is very comfortable and fun to drive. Excellent handling in snow and wet conditions. I am a bit disappointed with the mileage, but I can live with what is delivers. The big issue is that it has had problems starting in the last month. Five times now I have jumped in and it won't start. I had it towed last week but the service desk could not find the problem. It failed to start yesterday when I was running errands. fter 20 minutes it did start and I took it back for service. I am very unhappy with this reliability issue. Ford has enough problems.

Best Features

Seats are very comfortable. HVAC is excellent. Navigation system is extremely useful. Huge trunk. AWD is fantastic.

Worst Features

Improve the mileage. Fix the rear view mirror visibility problem - about 1/3 of the view is blocked. This is inexcusable. I almost did not buy the car because of this poorly engineered mirror location.
