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.

"Car is much improved over previous generation Taurus. Quiet and smooth ride, good handling, spacious interior. Worth every penny. Trunk is very large. Power is adequate with 3.0L, but won't win any races. car is tight and strong."

"Best car that nobody bought. Good ride, Spacious interior. Large trunk. Maintenance free and 30 MPG highway. Friends and family prefer riding in the Five Hundred over their imports because of the room. I rated the Value as a 3 because of the poor trade in value."

Pros: "Rides higher than most cars, roomy interior."

Cons: "Discontinued model, parts might be hard to find"

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

"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."
