"This car has very good fuel economy for a large spacious auto which has the look of a Mercedes Sedan. From the rear, I often mistake a Mercedes for this vehicle. Drives and handles very well, easily maintained."

Right-side profile

"The 2006 Five Hundred Limited. What is bad: The transmission got rebuilt at 68,000 miles. There is a tech bulletin on the software contained in the EPROM. This is the EPROM that controls the shifting solenoid which causes it to become confused when doing a double-downshift (like for passing or rapid acceleration) Since I got the car (at 165,000 miles) I took it to (A transmission shop) where they were able to diagnose the computer problem (2005-2006 Ford Five Hundreds with the 6-speed automatic transmission) So that was taken care of with a $159 reprogramming and it made things all better. The good: Performance is amazing, it drives like it's on rails and the 3.0 Liter V6 is extremely durable; built with a timing chain instead of a belt for longevity and won't skip timing on you like a belt would. The leather interior is very nice and the dual zone climate control is pretty good at keeping the car cooled down (although black cars just get hot, there's no way around that!) The passenger seat even folds flat- this basically allows you to fold down the back seat and passenger seat to load 2X4's or whatever else you 'need' from Home Depot without all the extra cost of owning or renting a truck. The MPG's Combined 21MPG city/highway commuting. On just highway it gets up near 29MPG on flat straight roads cruising at the magic 65MPH. Just watch out if the transmission needs overhaul. The components are mostly made in Japan and can end up running more than the KBB value for the car."
