1991 Ford Aerostar Minivan XLT 3dr Ext Minivan AWD


Review

The only reason I do not have my Aerostar today is because some guy, angry at his wife, totaled it while parked in front of my house. That V6 engine was bulletproof. Buy using only synthetic oil, the engine took a licking and kept on ticking (215000 miles at death) At start up I would hear a ticking sound, but as the engine warmed up the ticking went away and it never interfered with the performance. I loved the interior design. I had to replace the transmission and AC at 70K, but my extended warranty covered that beast. It was absolutely a blast and pleasure to drive on long trips.


Best Features

Engine performance and power, extremely comfortable driving conditions, interior and exterior design, roomy (enough room where four kids did not touch one another). Great fuel economy. Bulletproof engine. If I could find one in decent condition, I'll buy it in a heart beat.


Worst Features

Ensure creature comfort systems are reliable as the engine and Ford should bring the Aerostar back on the market.

Review

Bought van used with 70k miles and it's now at 168k & running strong. Bought it to replace a 1995 Plymouth Voyager after it was totaled & the biggest difference noticed was all the extra room. We had 4 kids at the time & van is huge with extra big cargo area & storage even under seats. Lots of headroom. Can comfortably haul from kids to couches. Engine & transmission mechanically sound with only routine maintenance; light oil usage only problem. 3.0L V-6 not enough power & it strains when accelerating but rides smooth once going. Gas mileage good at 17 city, 25 hwy. Seats have thick cushions instead of thin like new vans we've rented. We've kept van as spare because no new van is as roomy. We wish this model was still made!


Best Features

Room, room and more room. Dual air & stereo, electric lumbar support, ability to tow, firm but cushioned seats, headroom, legroom, sound mechanics.


Worst Features

Needed bigger engine standard and cup holders. Second set of spark plugs needs special tool to replace. Overhead storage would have been nice. Very back windows don't open but middle slide back. Needed inside handles to help children get into van.

1991 Ford Aerostar Minivan Eddie Bauer 3dr Ext Minivan AWD


Review

This beast now has 185,000 miles; the only problem I've had is an engine knock that gets better as the engine warms up (been knocking for a long time), and a wicked vibration under acceleration. Leaks a little oil but you know you can drive it any where. The AWD is great; it gets better traction than my Grand Cherokee. If the body would last as long as the engine I would keep it forever.


Best Features

AWD is GREAT. Engine is bullet proof. Stereo is better than average. And my kids can sit way in the back. Peace and quiet.


Worst Features

It doesn't need to look like a block of cheese.

Review

Its a great vehicle for hauling...used it in my furniture business. The interior is giant! Lots of head room! I bought it with 60k on it, and put another 100k on it. Really fun to drive,so roomy great if you're a tall person. Only problems-I now have a tick in engine!? Very hard to replace oil filter yourself. Lots of power though in 4.0 liter....As far as other problems,just normal things.


Best Features

Giant interior-8 foot from back of seats to back. Tailhatch pistons just keep working! Powerful motor, easy to drive. Great mfg stereo.


Worst Features

Start making it again! Bigger engine compartment. Lighter seats in back ( to heavy to put in and out)

Review

Bought van with 60,000 miles. Drove it for another 100,000 miles. No major problems. Great vehicle. Last year made 1997. Most for sale have over 100,000 to 200,000 mi, so it shows they last.


Best Features

Size, can fit plywood in extended model. Rides well, and tows well. Can tow 6,000 lbs.


Worst Features

Lower rocker panels rust out.
