"I used to always buy new cars, but I made an exception when I was in the market and found this every-option Five Hundred Limited with All Wheel Drive. I am now at 133K miles, and yet it has required nothing beyond routine service, tires and 2 batteries - I've never had a car before, even with my level of care, provide that level of reliability over so many miles. The AWD makes a world of difference in performance - possibly due to the CVT (which was phased out when the more powerful 3.5L engine came along). Handling is great, the ride is tight but the suspension really soaks up the bumps - not a "floaty" ride at all. At the 10 year point, the ride is not as quiet as it once was due to more road noise coming through as well as some wind noise at highway speeds. I can accept that given it's age. A plus is that even here in the rust belt, the car is rust free. Down side is engine noise and poor fuel economy on the AWD versions. I get 24 MPG max on the highway and typically 18 average city / highway commute. Keep in mind this is a 4000 pound true full size car."

"I would certainly consider buying this model again. Ford has added more power to the newer versions (Taurus) which addresses my sole complaint."

Best vehicle ever!

"I think the mileage says it all. Still rides comfortable. Gas mileage still 27 to 28 highway and 22to24 in town. Everything still works and looks good. Also it's not low to ground where you have to fall into seat like a lot of cars now days"

"I bought this car new, and I like it the best of any car I have ever had. It has plenty of room and is very comfortable. It handles well, and is a smooth ride. It has required only minor repairs. It has over 130,000 miles on it, and it's still going strong. I wish Ford had not stopped making the 500. I would buy a new one, if they still made them, but I'm hesitant to buy anything new, because I like this one so much."
