2005 Ford Five Hundred SEL 3.0 V6
We like the car very much.
I purchased this car Dec 30th, 2005. By the end of January I noticed chips in the paint around the bottom rear corners of the rear doors. The front wheels throw debris (small rocks, road salt) up and that is where it hits. A Ford dealership did repaint those areas, telling me it was covered by the warranty. After repainting it, the dealership told me they did me a favor for painting it. It is now one year since I purchased the vehicle. The paint is chipped bad as ever. Anyone else have this problem? I noticed the 2007 models have a strip on the bottom edge of the doors.
I read in someone's comments about the driver's side PW switch. My wife & I think that the auto up/down does go haywire when cold or raining, too.
I just had my brakes/rotors/calipers replaced (warranty covered).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
