I thought this was big enough car news to post on a computer web site: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/17003763/ The 500 is definitely an underrated car. It debuted with bland styling and power that woulda been plenty appropriate 10 years ago, but that just can't satisfy today's automotive journalists. Now it has an excellent new engine and transmission, new styling that's a bit more interesting (almost even looks like the original taurus), and now a new name that will actually ring a bell for pretty much anybody. Whether that's a good bell or not remains to be seen. Hopefully, for Ford's sake, a familiar name will get people to at least look at the car, cause I think this solid car deserves more attention than it gets. The Ford nameplate is just so tainted and it'll take a couple years of decent products to get people to forget that. Hopefully they can hold out until that happens.
