This vehicle is super reliable. I have not been able to wear it out. It has 230,000 kilometers on it 3.0 liter eng.does not use any oil. I have maintained this vehicle in accordance with manufacturers recommendations. It needs new shocks and some work. I have currently parked in my garage. No rust, I am going to put a new fuel pump for reliability purposes. This vehicle is in great shape and I want to keep it for a long time.

This vehicle has cost me over $1k every year in repairs since I purchased it. From a hydraulic arm on the hatch spontaneously breaking (and flying through the van, very dangerous) to numerous engine issues, I have to give this one up. I just sank another $980.00 into it less than a week before I drove it from WA to CA. We returned from our trip last Sunday with a burned out transmission. From what I've seen and read about this car, you either get an excellent vehicle or a complete lemon. Guess which one I got?

What a mistake that was. My van had
145,000 and still ran strong. I wanted
something newer and biger. So we bought
a suburban, had it one month and it
broke down. should have kept the
aerostar. bought it with 105,000 miles
and only changed the belts and a
starter motor . I never even got an oil

I have to dmit that after going though
one transmission, 3 starters, one water
pump, one air conditioner, and two side
door latches...it has come time for me
to part with the Aerostar and since
they don't make it anymore and I can't
find another (would by one if it was
a '97), I am going to switch to a Chevy
Astro or GMC Safari. Too bad they
stopped making it and went to the
Windstar...they Safari/Astro would have

What a great van for the $$. It has been very reliable with only repairs to the
brakes (which I assume is considred maintenance) and 2 seat belt clasps.
We spend a lot of time on the road loaded with teenagers and luggage and
have not been left stranded. On October 3rd, it was in a roll over accident,
and in spite of 4 complete rolls, it held up beautifully. The 3 seatbelted
passengers received only moderate cuts and bruising. I am definately
looking for another Aerostar!
