I'm glad I didn't pay for this

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


I am an insurance adjuster and this is my company car and I drive it hard. I currently have about 67000 miles on it and have had numerous problems with it mechanically. At 30K the trans began shifting hard, took it to the dealer and had the throttlebody replaced. At 50K the steering was loose and was pulling hard, had the left lower ball joint (which only came with the control arm) and the steering gear replaced. At 65K the same trans problem and they again replaced the throttlebody. Another adjuster has had similar problems with the steering/suspension. Also, 3.0 is not that powerful. You might have better luck as an everyday commuter instead of a workhorse like me.

Best Features

Interior is very nice and spacious, decent mileage. I actually like the styling, especially compared to the previous Taurus's

Worst Features

I'm curious how the 08's fare with the bigger engine and dumped the variable speed transmission..
