Great For Families (race Drivers Beware) — What can you say about your first car. It has never let me down, even after I drove over a round-about and popped all four tires, it still made the 5 mile trip to the auto-shop without a problem. Love this car.

Love My Car! — I adore this car. And that's saying something since I have owned several makes, models, and styles of vehicles in my life. This car rates higher with me as an '06 than my '08 Sentra did! Very nice, easy to maintain, and stylish.

You Can't Beat It. — It's ridiculously awesome. I wouldn't trade it for the world. I can't even begin to describe my immense love and adoration for this beautiful work by the Ford Motor Company. The Ford Five Hundred beats any other sedan in its class. Any day.

Very Realiable — very good looking car, comfortable, good on gas, very slow with the cvt transmission and if you push that car at all it chugs gas bad, the build quality is great, cause it's a ford, it turns a lot of heads going down the road, wish it was louder though

Comfortable Ride With Good Handling And Tons Of Room — Love the care, has lots of room for passengers and tons of trunk space. Handles excellent for a large car, only downside is that it is underpowered with the 210hp V-6. Other than that, love the car. Used it for just about everything, even took the wife and 2 kids camping in it with plenty of room for all of our stuff.

2006 Ford Five Hundred — Great passenger car overall. What I loved about it the most was it was basically free as it was a company vehicle. Drove this vehicle very long distances (over 1,500 miles weekly) for my job and the passenger compartment and driver erganomics made this a very comfortable vehicle to drive. Mileage range was excellent for this 6 cyl. LOVED THIS CAR!

Good Comfortable Car For Trips And Can Hold Alot Of Cargo. — It's a very comfortable car to drive. The 2008 and 2009 models which were renamed the Taurus have the more powerful engine. While the engine is adequite on this car, the extra 60hp would have been a little better for this car. The car is on the 5000 lb range, and a little floaty, so you won't be speeding through turns. Braking is very nice, the cost of ownership isn't too bad. It's a 20 gallon gas tank, but only uses 87. So its not too expensive. It does have some odd parts though. The windshield wipers of all things are oddly made and are 20 dollars each. That's a weird thing. All in all its a nice looking car thats a comfortable car to drive.

Roomy, handling, safety, comfort

Uninspiring design, responsive and smooth CVT led me to get my first speeding tickets in 20 years.

A Great, Forgotten Car — Roomy with one of the largest trunks around. I took my wife, two kids in car seats, two portacribs, and high chair, luggage, and kids play stations on several vacations in complete comfort. Quality has been excellent. The design is nothing to get excited about, but not a big issue with me. I wasn't going for status, I was going for an afforable, comfortable, reliable car that met our lifestyle. This is it.

Leather seats are super-comfortable. The sound system is great. The trunk is HUGE! The back seat is HUGE! I fit 8 people into this car easily.

Cons

The tires. Re-sale value. Now it is a Taurus.

The Absolute Love Of My Life! — I bought this car in September of 2007 from Charles Tobey who owns Angelo & Son Used Cars with 25,000 miles on it. Now, it has 45,000 miles on it and I have enjoyed every one of them. The only problem I have had with the car is tires. I go through them like M&Ms. I will have this car for another 200,000 miles if it lasts that long.

When One Looks At Old-fashioned American Value, This Ford Five Hundred Is Hard To Beat! — When the average American auto consumer in the market for a reasonably priced American sedan with most of the amenities, this Ford Five Hundred is hard to beat. It's got more room than the Chevy Impala and the Dodge Charger in terms of passenger room and trunk volume. Its build / assembly quality is as good or better than the Chevy or Dodge. It only comes up short in horsepower and poor rear brake design. And to compensate for the lack of horsepower, the fuel economy of the 3.0 L Duratec v-6 is actually a tad better . ( I'm averaging a real world 19 mpg in mostly city driving and use regular unleaded fuel). When you couple that with the Five Hundred's Mazda6-inspired / Volvo safety designed body, it becomes a very hard bargain to beat. Hopefully, Ford will redesign those rear brakes. I know they will install the 3.5 L v-6 beginning in 2008.
