Best for what it is
By sbmackie on
1996 Ford Aerostar XLT 3dr Minivan
Which is a family hauler par
excellence. Can't find a new one that
holds as much. Family transpo chief
wouldn't go for one of the
newer, "prettier" vans...had to be an
Aerostar. Got 196K out of our '89 (did
a tranny at 165k, but who cares?)and
was still tight when we sold it. It is
a Ford--when it does break, it is more
expensive to fix then GM products.
However, it is much more pleasurable to
drive then the Safari/Astro (IMHO).
Like alot of other Aerostar owners, I
wish I could buy a 2003...
