Advice: Enjoy the room of an SUV, but the gas mileage of a much smaller car.I have had my 2007 Ford Five Hundred now for about 1 year. I love the car. I drove a Toyota Avalon, and Camry first. I was almost set to buy the Avalon until I drove a Five Hundred. Performance is great, especially up hills, handles excellent, and extremely comfortable, especially on long trips. Incredible interior space for my 2 teenage boys (1 almost 6 feet tall!) and trunk space is enormous. Great car, and saved a few bucks over the Avalon. I'm very happy with this car. This is my first Ford, but definitely not my last.
Pros: interior room, even in the backseat
Cons: nowhere to put my purse
Advice: You'll be pleasantly surprisedI have been very happy with the decision to purchase this car. It is very comfortable and roomy. It handles well, and is very quiet. Sits up high for easy entry and exit as well as visibilty. I used to have an SUV, and even now don't feel like I'm in a car. No problems as of yet. I was hoping to get a little better gas mileage than I do, but choosing the better handling and more quiet AWD over FWD caused me to lose a few mpg. My teenage kids love the room in the backseat. Appearance wise I would have liked it to be a little more sporty. My daughter tells me it kind of looks like an old person car...and I am NOT an old person! Overall, great car..no regrets
Pros: dual climate controls
Cons: exterior styling
Advice: buy it, it is built on a volvo S80 chassis, and is very sturdy and safeThis car has a 3.0L dohc v6 with a smooth 6 speed transmission. Acceleration from 0-40 is ok but is best at speeds between 60-80. It is extrmely quiet,comfortable,and handles very well. The car comes with a lot of features found on a more high end automobile.
