Goodbye Ford
By Jeevis on


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


Bought new...start of a nightmare! Motor has been ticking since 500 miles. Ford retorqued and adjusted arojund the camshaft twice-no improvement! Dealer is stumped! Constant brake problems (car has only 20000 miles now). Steering stops have to constantly be "re-set and re-greased" because of noises when steering. AC would not turn off at one point-fixed now. AC doors were striking something and made knocking noises whenever AC was turned on/off-now fixed. Still some odd sounds under dash (like water running) and A/C panel-again Ford is stumped! Dealer blames Ford; Ford blames dealer. This loyal customer will take his loyalty to Toyota/Honda-never to return to Ford again!

Best Features

Roomy interior, dashboard, beautifully designed exterior, excellent sound system.

Worst Features

Ford needs to be more helpful to customers they've sold a lemon to. Many noises in this car that are not right. Need to fix this car's brake system. Mud flaps too low and often strike ground when going over speed bumps. Constant engine tick. Power steering knocks. Crudely made!
