Why don't they build this again?

1997 Ford Aerostar XLT 3dr Ext Minivan
Bought new. Excellent mpg/20+ avg for 12 yrs. Lot's of rattles. Huge space. I'm 6'5" and have no problem getting in or out, excellent driving position. A/C's still work fine. Parts are getting harder to find. Great on highway at less than 70. More, like 80, and get excessive wind noise. But for normal driving around town and up to 65 mph or so, is absolutely great. Starts every time. Would buy a new one if it were available.
Comfortable seating, front, middle & rear. Good handling. Stable on wet roads, snowy conditions.
After 12 yrs, 146,000 miles, have lot's of rattles. Could they have made it better? Also, bring it back and I'll buy another.
