2007 Ford Five Hundred SEL 3.0 from North America
Best sedan you can buy
I love this car. The more I drive it the bigger my smile. No one else in the world offers a Cross-over sedan. Feels large, drives solid and looks expensive.
The ideal car to use for business and pleasure.
My Pearl Blue car looks like an expensive German model, but fits americans better, because it is.
The build quality from Chicago is great, not a single build issue - and I love the Continintal tires. I don't know why anyone would be critical of how fast it is, it is fast and cruises great. Whoever wants to drive a big sedan like a sports car simply doesn't know what driving is about. Want speed, buy a Mustang. What the best sedan you can get for the money, buy a 500.
Is it perfect, no, nothing is - but the seating position alone is worth the price.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

It sounds like you really are enjoying your new Five Hundred! Perhaps you wouldn't mind coming back after you have a few more miles on the car for an update.

I will try to update. Also want to mention that the door key pad is great. Some reviewers try to downplay it as only for 'forgetting your keys", actually it is great when you are out running or around the dock and don't want to keep keys in the pocket. Also, we leave the car at the airport for friends and family to pick up, and they simply use the code to enter and find the keys in a safe place.
Lastly, right now you can make a great deal on an 07, Ford is offering $2,000.00 + you can get another $1,000.00. I was able to negotiate a total of $6,500.00 off the already reasonable $23,000 on the window. It is like a Fusion on steroids - and is a really well made machine. Ford deserves more credit than criticism for the engine choice - and all around modern approach to this great family sedan.
My family, even the teens like it, because it is low key and looks expensive.
