Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2006 Ford Five Hundred Owner Comments

problem #2

Feb 242016

Five Hundred Limited 3.0L V6 Duratec

  • Automatic transmission
  • 160,000 miles


Whenever I moved the shifter the engine would make this loud knocking sound back in 2015, but I figured it was nothing until February 2016. My engine would move forward and backwards when I drive and put the car in park, reverse and drive the whole car would jump. So my mechanic worked out a great deal with me and I had to help but it cut the cost down greatly. Top engine mount rubber like part was badly damaged.

problem #1

Five Hundred FWD Limited 3.0L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,000 miles

Quality of all brands suck because they are in the beta business of recreating the wheel. The Ford Five Hundred was the perfect culmination of conservative style and comfort for 5 and long distance travel. It should have evolved as a RWD only vehicle with 360-450 horsepower up front.
