I bought one of the first Five Hundreds sold back in 2005. 187,000 miles later, still going strong and rides beautifully. Mostly highway miles, nothing more than routine maintenance. I think the point about lack of recognition is absolutely right - this is one of the least-appreciated cars Ford ever produced but one of the best overall. My Limited AWD CVT is one comfortable, roomy, fuel efficient ride.

I too agree with Scott... I've only got 70,000 miles on my 05 AWD Limited with the CVT and but for a light bulb or two, routine maintenance has taken care of everything.. it's been one of the best cars I've ever owned... I have to admit I've been looking at the new Taurus... they have gone "high end" on those things... I'm comparing it to Lexus and I dare say, I think I'd go for the Taurus (the prices are within $2000 - $3000 of each other...)
