Great car for the money


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


Love the comfort, space, handling and fuel economy (high 20's consistently). I am partial to the styling vs. the new "Taurus" design. This is my wife's car which is used mainly for business. Incredible space in trunk for her samples. She can haul about as much as a pickup with seats down. No exaggeration. Problems so far - CD did not work soon after purchase and was replaced. Rear brakes! Worn out at 28K. Dealer said this was normal. We had them replaced at a local shop. 2 weeks later, received letter from Ford extending warranty on them to 36K miles - big deal. They should last longer than that. Received refund for the work we had done.

Best Features

Comfort, safety rating, trunk space, interior design and functionality. Space, mileage, handling, and head room. Overall feel of the car when driving. 6 spd trans. Seat height and ease of entry. Interior storage.

Worst Features

Fix the brake problem. 36k miles on r- brakes is ridiculous. Move sticks on column 1 inch closer to steering whl. Speed control buttons are not intuitive. Add 1 touch up and down on all windows. Improve trunk litg. Add telescoping steering whl. Replace OEM tires. They are very noisy.
