On 1/3/05 I purchased my Five Hundred which not only was my first Ford but a new line for Ford. I knew I liked the style and functionality of it so I took a chance and have been completely satisfied ever since. On 8/30/11 my home away from home and I celebrated 250,000 miles together and it’s still going strong. The interior and exterior still look virtually new and it still has the original belts, plugs, suspension & practically all other parts that people normally expect to fail 100,000 miles ago. Thank you Ford for building such a quality product!
