"I have owned this car 9 1/2 years. I Followed maintenance schedule and have gone over 100K miles without a hiccup. Starts every time I turn the key. (hope I didn't just jinx it) Needed one set of tires and one pair of brake pads. 2 recalls were fixed right away with no hassle."

"I bought a 2007 Ford 500 brand new and drove it for 106000 miles without an issue. Great car for the money, looks good and drives really well. You can't beat the car for the price."

"The Front Wheel Drive Was The Difference. I understand the all wheel drive Five Hundreds Trannys were bad. I followed the regular schedule for maintenance. Rotated tires every other oil change. My first set of tires lasted 73,000 miles. Those were factory tires. I insisted my Tech order my Factory again and they still look great. I hope my Ford Five Hundred Lasts Forever."

Exterior View, Black on Black Limited Model

"Picked up a used 2005 Ford 500 Limited last week w/only 32k miles on it, a few days into driving it & very impressed. Car is very roomy, comfortable & quiet and gets 27-28mpg so far (80% highway miles), @ speeds up to 75mph +/- with some city driving. Engine/Tranny combo of 3.0-24V-V6 & 6speed tranny work well together (particularly for MPG), but this is not a sports car, acceleration is acceptable, but no stop light racing here. Very nicely equipped, exterior styling is a little dull but that would be my only criticism. Can't speak to reliability yet, but hoping it's a good car as I'm looking forward to some good years of driving it ahead."
