2005 Ford Five Hundred 6 cylinder from North America
Do not like the sound of the engine and would trade it in today
Needed new starter at 200 miles.
Got great gas mileage when new. Now down 5 mpg in city and highway with same driving habits.
Engine sounds like it is running on 4, not 6, cylinders.
Comfortable ride and roomy trunk and plenty of room for passengers in back.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

You do not have to be obnoxious. I recognize your commenting from other posts on this site. This is a site about reviewing cars, not maligning people.

I took my car in for a front-wheel malignment yesterday.

No surprise if you took it to a Ford dealer.

The five hundred is a nice car to look at and sit it. I have never ridden one, so I can't comment on its ride or handling. However, I will say that teh 205 horsepower is inadequate, thus causing all that commotion which you complained about. Horsepower is not all about going fast. It's about having a smooth idling, quiet engine.
