Backup sensors. Heated mirrors. Rearview auto tint. Power windows, seats,locks.

2006 Ford Five Hundred SEL

I've done very little since being the second owner in way of repairs. Common issues I run into are throttle body buildup and buildup on the terminals of the batter. . Since replacing the throttle body I have had no issues with its performance. The odometer is now at 200,000 miles and it is still running strong. Shifting is still strong and prompt. The only complaint I have is the price of replacing the throttle body since the entire assembly is one piece that you have to buy whole in order to fix any sensor problems. The cvt transmission could lead you to believe there is a transmission issue but the shifting is entirely normal for that year of cvt.

Long-time trustworthy comfort.

2006 Ford Five Hundred SEL

I thoroughly enjoy my car. It provides the size of a larger sedan without having to upgrade to an SUV/crossover. I feel safe with the amount of car I have around me for protection. I have been in 2 accidents since owning this and not only was I safe but my car was able to sustain the damage and after repairs, still runs very well. I have driven 3 hours one way for school for 6 years and the car has held up remarkably. There is so much space inside for not only myself as the driver but for all passengers too. The back seat and trunk are so spacious and have served me well for many moving hauls. Personally, I love the sunroof feature my car has.

It glides down the road like an old galaxy.

2006 Ford Five Hundred SEL

It has leather interior, new brakes and bearing assemblies on the rear wheels and a new throttle pedal position sensor. It is AWD and handles all road conditions like a champ. It gets an average of 25 mpg. It has an all electric drivers seat, it also has a 6 disc changer stereo. Unfortunately it is white and is developing rust in all the normal locations that you get rust when you live in Minnesota.

Reliability and comfort ability in one vehicle.

2006 Ford Five Hundred SEL

This is the first Ford I've owned and I will definitely buy another. The car is roomy but not a boat and has great gas mileage. Other than some minor body damage the car looks good. I have been hit in the rear three times and no damage was done to my car. I feel it is very safe for my seven year old to travel in as well.

Is an oldie but a goodie.

2006 Ford Five Hundred SEL

I bought it used however did not have any issues with it till well after a few years owning it. Everything that I had to fix on it has been things that would fail in any vehicle after how old it is. Its MPG is acceptable and its storage is amazing. Would recommend to other people.

Good long lasting reliable car

2006 Ford Five Hundred SEL

The only problems I have had recently is that the alternator has gone out but it is a 13 year old car. The brakes are amazing and it rides very smooth. I like that the seat can be raised since I am on the shorter side. It has a large gas tank so I don't have to fill it often.

- Damien P

Big and spacious Smith ride

2006 Ford Five Hundred SEL

I bought it used the car is a good car runs well I had to replace the throttle body, and basic things like brakes and rotors also it is extremely hard to find the correct windshield wiper blades. The car is very big and spacious and great if you wanted to take a road trip.
