Re: 2006 Ford Five Hundred - final days

I think water/dirt is able to get between the the qtr panel and outer wheelhouse. It takes a while but corrosion starts from the inside out.

2006 Ford Five Hundred - final days

As much as I hated to do it my 2006 Five Hundred Limited AWD is gone :( Bought it used in 2008 with 16k on it and short of front rotors/pads,rear calipers/pads and 3 sets of tires: that’s all I ever had to do to it. At 96k it needed front struts,new a/c compressor but the thing that made the decisio...

Re: Michelin MXV4 Primacy or Goodyear Comfort Tread Touring

So far the Goodyears are still going strong. Have about 18K on them and show some normal wear but still quiet.

Re: Michelin MXV4 Primacy or Goodyear Comfort Tread Touring

Goodyears are just as good as the day I put them on.Still very quiet and hardly any wear to date. I would put them on again.

Re: 2006 Mercury Montego

Just had CVT serviced on my 2006 Limited with 40K. 10 quarts of fluid @ $11.47 per qt. - screen assy $51.76 and gasket $15.23 labor was 137.22. Depending on what you are hearing you may have a wheel bearing going. I was planning to get the fluid changed on Monday. The Saturday before sounded like I ...

Re: Wheel Bearing

I just had this done on Tuesday. Did not get a chance to talk to the technician as I picked the car up after regular hours. I know you can't really tell which one it is. Mine was the left rear. Don't know how he decided that was the one. Had the CVT fluid changed and engine isolator also. Sorry I ca...

Re: Any Experience with Kumho Solus KH 16 Tires

Can't help you with the Kuhmo's. I wanted the Michelin MXV4's, but at the time they were out of stock nationally. Waited for 4 months and still were not in stock. I decided to try the Goodyear Assurance Comfort Tread Touring as they seemed as close as I could get to the Michelins in performance and ...

Re: Michelin MXV4 Primacy or Goodyear Comfort Tread Touring

Have about 500 miles on the new Goodyears and must say I am still very pleased with the ride quality and the how quiet they are compared to the old P6's that were on the car. I don't get into the gas mileage thing as it is what it is.

Michelin MXV4 Primacy or Goodyear Comfort Tread Touring

Wanted to purchase the Michelin MXV4 Primacy but after waiting 6 weeks and possibly another 4 -6 weeks before they are in stock I gave the Goodyear Comfort Tread Touring a try on my 2006 Five Hundred Limited. The original Pirelli P6's were at the end of their life. The Comfort Tread Touring had very...

Re: Replacement tires - 2006 Limited AWD

Thanks for the advice. I'll give the 60 series a try and see if they are in stock. I'm hesitant to try another brands with the majority of users praising the Michelin. I have a 2010 Fusion company vehicle that came with Michelins OEM. I drive a ton of miles and had to replace the tires at 50K. Went ...

Replacement tires - 2006 Limited AWD

I know this has been a topic quite a few times, but my choice of the Michelin MXV4 Primacy is out of stock. I've been told from 3 tire dealers it will be 3-4 months before they are back in stock. I had my heart set on these from from the reviews from this site. Has anyone else had another tire they ...

Re: 2006 Five Hundred Limited headlamp switch

Thanks for the reply... I have a 2010 Fusion for a company vehicle and the headlamp knob symbols do illuminate at night, that's why I questioned the Five Hundred. As a side note, I really like the Five Hundred better -other than the Fusion is a quieter car on the road the Five Hundred on a trip is m...

2006 Five Hundred Limited headlamp switch

Something I just noticed is at night the symbols for the lamp section are not illuminated. The fog lamp bar lights up when on but nothing else is lighted. Is that the way it is or is there a bulb out and if there is has anyone fixed this? JOHN

Re: Headlight lense clean up

If you have very badly hazed lenses, you DO sand the lense with 2000 grit, there is 3000 grit also. The 3M kit is nice as it comes with air powered hand held buffers and the proper compounds if you buy the professional kit. The do-it -yourself kit comes with pads and compounds to use with your drill...

Leather Interior Care

2006 Limited with leather interior, light tan. Are there any products that work better? Some of the products I looked at said to try on a spot to be sure it does not change the color.

New Member - Purchased '06 Five Hundred

Purchased 2006 AWD Limited November 1st 2008. I was concerned about the engine power issue after reading reviews from various sites. I can say for me this vehicle is fine as far as regular driving. I race a 700HP Ford at the drag strip so I know what power is. For normal street driving I am very ple...

New Member - '96 Taurus interior lights don't go out!

New member here. Purchased brand new-used 2006 Five Hundred Limited AWD and very pleased with this decision. I may be in the wrong area, but the old car is a '96 Taurus and has an annoying problem with the interior lights that won't go out. This occurs in hot weather or when the heater has been on i...
