1996 Ford Aerostar XLT 3dr Minivan


This van continues to impress, doing everything we could ask of it and much more. We haul kids, dogs, home improvement supplies, LOADS of groceries, tons of vacation stuff, and all without a complaint, a whimper, or a problem of any kind. It isn't fancy yet its remarkably comfortable. If you change the oil every 3000 miles and change the other fluids and belts on time, the Aerostar will never die. It has few drawbacks and many, many virtues that vans which cost many thousands more cannot compete.

Best Features

It has a 21.5 gallon gas tank and will get 23 mpg on the highway, on regualr fuel. That translates into great range. Also, the rear air conditioner unit is a god send on real hot Florida days.

Worst Features

I would give the 3.0 V6 about 25 more horsepower. I would also put in a passenger side air bag. Other than that, no changes at all.
