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.

"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."

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"

"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."

"I'm 6'1" tall and lots of leg room both in the front and back{with the front seats all the way back}. Gets around 22 to 24 MPG in town and around 28 to 29 MPG on the road. I read anothers report about not having any power going up hills, I live in the Seattle area and go over the mountains all the time and have found no lack of power. Would I buy a new one, maybe after this one wears out."
