1997 Ford Aerostar XLT 3dr Ext Minivan AWD

Review

This vehicle has been virtually trouble free. The AWD makes it unstickable in the snow and gives great traction on slick boat ramps. The interior is spacious and comfortable (I'm 6'5" and have plenty of head and leg room). The optional captains chairs keep the kids from fighting on long trips and the extended length holds plenty of cargo. Fuel economy has been 19 mpg all around (3 mpg less when towing my 17 ft runabout). If Ford Motor Company still made Aerostars, I'd be first in line to order another.

Favorite Features

AWD is must. Without it you don't go in snow. Captains chairs front and back make long trips comfortable. Rear air should be considered standard.

Suggested Improvements

Engine compartment is so tight it's almost impossible to do anything but basic maintenance yourself. Find a trustworthy dealer for scheduled maintenance.
