Ford Five Hundred information:

A Great Family Car Or A Disastrous Purchase? A Serious Question To Ask

After a long series of pickup trucks and minivans, Ford realized that it should have a formidable full-size car created, as to offer a new choice for a family car, as well as to challenge its competition in that area as well. As a result, the Ford Five Hundred was created and released, with the aim of completing the full size sedan arsenal of the Ford family. In general, it didn’t quite reach the popularity which was aimed for, and it is certainly not a popular purchase today. While it managed to keep a decent performance in several areas on level, there are some major downfalls which ultimately made that car somewhat of a mediocre choice.

What are the noteworthy characteristics of this model?

The Ford Five Hundred officially went into production in the year 2005. It came just after Ford Taurus, but its production spree the last too long. In fact, it was finished by the year 2007. It was supposed to come in three trim levels, the SE, SEL and limited, but throughout the last year of production, the SE has been canceled, as the production came to an end. What users were particularly pleased with was the spacious, comfortable design, which is certainly going to be very appealing to a family. The overall design has quite a few similarities to the year 2000’s Ford Prodigy, and it is believed that the Ford Five Hundred’s design was mostly based on that model. With an air-conditioning feature and the simulated wood trim on the dashboard, leather trims on the shifting knob; it proved to have all of the basics covered. It had the 17 inch alloy wheels and null tires, with a temporary spare tire stored in the back, for convenience.

How much of customization should I be expecting?

Despite how old it is, the Ford Five Hundred has quite a few notable upgrades available. There evenly balanced, able to boost both the interior and exterior design, as well as the performance. You will be able to change the look of the grille, the sidebars, upgrade the brakes and exhausts, as well as provide some of the minor changes to the interior as well.  In addition to that, you will be able to shop for spare parts, which means that if anything goes wrong at any point, you will be secured .It is a pleasing choice, seeing as not every car which was this old was able to provide some of the upgrades you can see in this model.  This makes it possible for you to customize the car across several aspects, which is always a positive trait.

What about the engine?

This is the area in which the Ford Five Hundred doesn’t seem to perform quite as well as you would expect. Although it’s uses a 3.0L V-6 engine with 24 valves, the overall impression is that the acceleration and the speed it can achieve are quite subpar. It uses the six speed automatic transmission, as well as the multipoint fuel injection system. The torque has been able to reach 207 lb –ft at 4500rpm, while the overall engine power is at 203hp at 5750rpm. With those specifications, this car is quite is able to provide you with any notable speed boosts, although admittedly it does perform on a decent level. Granted, it could be much better than what it currently is.

How much fuel is it expected to spend?

The Ford Five Hundred can’t quite brag with the fuel economy either, seeing as the painfully small fuel tank, and what could be considered fairly decent fuel consumption won’t really improve the overall state this car is in. The fuel tank can hold up to 20 gallons of fuel, and the 20mpg doesn’t really help that either. This most certainly calls for frequent refills, which isn’t something consumers would be particularly excited about. Still, with an overall decent performance this car has shown to exhibit, this could still make a very viable choice for someone looking for a cheap car to purchase. The fuel it uses is the unleaded fuel.

Is the safety well-managed?

Thankfully, the Ford Five Hundred happens to excel in this area, which would only be acceptable, seeing as this was supposed to be a family car. The crash test ratings came up extremely high, with the small exception in the rollover resistance area. Other than that, this car happens to have a few safety features as well. Initially, as the car went into production, the overhead airbag has been an optional upgrade a buyer could purchase. In later editions, however, it became part of the standard equipment. There is an occupant sensing airbag, a security system which would help prevent thefts, a panic alarm, the engine immobilizer and an optional upgrade which could get you the traction control as well. The amazing level of the safety is one of the main reasons this qualifies as quite a good purchase for a family car.

Should I consider it is a purchase?

If you are still wondering whether or not would it be worth to purchase the Ford Five Hundred, you can join the club of many users which have the similar opinion. A handful of useful features make it a great choice, while the inevitably horrible engine performance certainly makes you consider your other options before settling for this one. In any case, you should know that the Ford Five Hundred has actually been remade and rebranded in the year 2008. It was given the name of the Ford Taurus, and while it resembles this model in every single way, the major issue of the acceleration we had here has been successfully dealt with. It is worth knowing that you can get practically the same car with a good engine performance. However, if you really do want to get this one, be prepared to face what seems to be at least a mediocre engine performance. It would be a much better idea to get the rebranded model, in order to be able to successfully avoid any of the problems you are bound to meet if you purchase the Ford Five Hundred. If the engine performance was handled in a good way, the car might have had a chance to become popular.
