Wish They Still Made Them!
By Torres on
1991 Ford Aerostar XLT 3dr Ext Minivan
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!
Room, room and more room. Dual air & stereo, electric lumbar support, ability to tow, firm but cushioned seats, headroom, legroom, sound mechanics.
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.
