1995 Ford Aerostar Minivan XLT 3dr Ext Minivan AWD


Review

My third AWD Aerostar and best yet. I own a second 1995 AWD, my first Aerostar was a 1990 short van. All 3 vans have have been rock solid dependable with normal maintenance issues such as front CV boots, steering knuckles/bearings being the most costly, occurring in the 130-140K mile range. These vans were built at Hazelwood, MO by some of the best people that Ford has. I enjoyed working with St Louis Assembly as a supplier QA Engineer for over 13 years so I speak from experience. Both vans have over 184K and plenty of life remaining. I am now considering another 97 AWD model. Gas mileage = 17- 20mpg & same as a Windstar which has less room and utility. Aerostar's build quality is far superior.


Best Features

All Wheel Drive - GREAT in snow & gravel. Easy maintenance; oil & air filter, brakes, cooling, etc, but spark plug & wires are hard. Tips: Inspect CV boots for tears at oil changes, Rotate tires regular & replace 4 tires at same time - minimizes potential transmission and transfer case problems.


Worst Features

Ford needs a medium van design choice again. With the new multi-vehicle build plants like Dearborn this should not present a capacity or extra plant issue. Only cost to design. Ford may find a ready market of buyers for it.

Review

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?


Best Features

Very roomy interior, comfortable driver's seat.


Worst Features

Too many to list.

Review

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.


Best Features

Ours had built in safety seats for the kids, I liked that
