About Ford Five Hundred

Ford's full-size Five Hundred has not been the hit for which the company had hoped. Despite its roomy interior, cavernous trunk and frugal V6 engine, consumers apparently are not impressed by the car's bland styling and lackluster performance. That's a shame, because compared to the aging Crown Victoria, a car whose sales are still going strong, the Five Hundred offers more passenger space, a better chassis, better safety ratings and the option of all-wheel drive. Although Americans appear unwilling to give up on their beloved V8 engines (note the success of the Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300), should gas prices continue to climb, the Five Hundred may yet find a larger audience.

The Five Hundred lineup has been reduced to two trim levels: SEL and Limited.

New options for the SEL trim include navigation, heated seats and SIRIUS Satellite Radio.

"Once you get used to the 6 speed trans this car is verry pleasant to drive. It is geared for economy and once you drive it as intended it rewards you with smoothness and great mileage for its size. Think of it as an American Volvo a great value for the thinking person."

"I have driven the Five hundred (and it's sister car the Freestyle) for a combined 50,000 miles and overall it is a terrific car. I abhor the "critics" who on one hand demand 0-60 times of 6 seconds, and think cubic inches and horsepower make a good car, yet scream about gas mileage in the 30's! This car has it all, but don't expect breakneck acceleration. It's roomy, comfortable, and library quiet, and complimented with all the safety features that make it Top-Rated. The stereo is awesome and I get great gas mileage. Styling appeals to the middle-of-the-road, not outlandish like the Chrysler 300 where you can't even see out the windows. The seating position and visibility is great,. The trunk is cavernous, and although I rarely have passengers in back, the room there is as good as the old full-size luxo-boats. Performance is adequate, I also don't need to drag race, and merging at speed is not a problem. The good news for someone considering this car is that Ford has rebadged it as a Taurus for 2008 with 500 engineering changes and a much more powerful V-6 and 6 speed automatic developed with GM. That car will steal the full size segment and will have many import buyers coming back to Ford. Hats off and credit due to Ford Motor co."

Pros: "Easy and fun to drive, especially in inclement weather"

Cons: "Only one, you must have front wheel shields to keep paint from being damaged"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I have owned this vehicle for seven years and am still impressed when I drive this car. It has the CVT transmission and it handles better in ice and snow than any SUV I've owned previously. It has very positive control and steering and the engine has plenty of power for a family vehicle (203 hp). It takes a couple of weeks to get used to not hearing the gears shift but once you get used to that its great. It always finds just the right gear combination automatically, either going up or down hills. It cruises very comfortably on the highway and gets great milage. (18 city and up to 28 Hwy) the trunk is huge and shaped so it fits a tremendous amount of cargo. The rear seats fold down and so does the front passenger seat allowing long loads such as 2 x 4's without any trouble. The front seats are very comfortable and give good back support. The rear seating area is actually oversized giving rear seat passengers lots of leg room and ease in getting in and out, great for people of advanced age. I really wish they still made this model, I would buy another today."
