How am I ever going to part with this van? At 212000 it has taken children and all their stuff to college in Wisconsin, North Carolina and Pottsdam in upstate NY. It has made countless trip to Indiana again loaded to the top with product, my husband owns his own business. I has taken me to Minnesota to visit my first grandchild. A last the transmission has started to slip and we are holding on. This van has been a reliable workhorse, it sits outside all year, in western NY, and starts every morning without fail. I have had very few problems with it and the comfort for all my family including my 6'7" son has been great. Everyone can drive it from my son to myself at 5'1". I can haul anything
Its reliability, versatility, comfort. What was Ford thinking? I believe this car will last forever.
This is the best vehicle I have ever owned. I bought it new and have spent almost nothing on repairs. It now has 170,000 miles and still runs strong. Interior and extetior still look great. Wish Ford still made a vehicle this good. The 4.0 liter engine is great.
Great for hauling people and cargo, plenty of room. Easy to drive, great for kids.
Make it again. Ford goofed when they dropped it and started selling the Windstar which was a joke compared to the Aerostar.
We bought this van 1 1/2 years ago,
and have done nothing but pour money
into it. The whole engine has given
out, the cam shaft is broke, both
heads cracked, we've had to put in a
new radiator, water pump, rack and
pinion, and other things I am too
frustrated to remember. A lousy deal
for us. Beware.
Ours had built in safety seats for the
kids, I liked that
This is my 4th Aerostar, and I still
love it. I cant find anything out
there to replace it without stepping
up to a big van (to do this I would
have to sacrifice my great fuel
economy 18/23). I bought my first
Aerostar, an '89, in 1991, put 192,000
miles on it. My next one was a '92
that I traded with 132,000 miles. My
next one was a '91. It was totaled
(rear-ended) with only 99,000 miles.
My current Aerostar, I bought to
replace the totaled '91, is a 1995
with 155,000 miles on it. I still take
it on family vacations. Out of all 4
Aerostars, I have not done any engine
overhauls or tranny jobs. Just normal
repairs including changing fluids
Drivers comfort, seating height and
overall road visibility. Ability to
haul big loads with the seats out (4x8
sheets, 26 cu ft refer and shut the
hatch, 1800 lbs of river rock for
landscaping) and an entire Thomasville
dining set w/six chairs.
Few more ponies out of the 3.0 V6, get
rid of the cumbersome heater hose
connectors/fittings, avility to open
all doors when you open the liftgate.
Bring the Aerostar back to the Ford
line-up RWD of course.
