2007 Ford Five Hundred SEL 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl CVT)


I bought the AWD version to replace a small SUV which got horrible highway mileage. I have been very pleased with the Ford 500. It gets 21 in town, 24 in mixed city/highway driving and will get about 32 mpg when driven at 65 on the highway. Highway mpg's vary between 27 and 34 depending upon speed driven and wind. It is great for hauling large items such as 300 pounds of horse feed and recently a table and chairs. Handling is pretty good, excellent brakes and outboard visibility, fine acceleration for merging and passing (contrary to some reviews-it goes plenty fast without straining). The steering is a bit floaty, worse in the front wheel version. Very comfortable interior.

Best Features

Reliable AWD, great safety cage and airbags, love moonroof. adequate head and leg room. So happy to have decent mileage for both economic and ethical reasons. I think the car is pretty. Like practical, somewhat minimal interior. Love fold flat back and front passenger seats. CVT engine is smooth.

Worst Features

Trunk space needs a light on both sides. Gas cap should lock when car does. Radio could be better in a $29,000 car. I think Ford should have resisted the cry for a bigger hp engine and defended the CVT and adequate engine as a responsible new direction for American cars. When will we learn?
