Friends and family prefer riding in the Five Hundred over their imports because of the room.

"I've owned a Ford Five Hundred for eleven years and would recommend it to anybody. It is comfortable and rides a bit higher than most cars, making it easier to get in and out of. It has a very roomy back seat and trunk. It has held up well, but has needed repairs to brakes and a minor problem with a power steering fluid leak. I recommend the AWD model for areas that get snow - it has handled very well in Colorado even with several inches of snow on the ground."
