I have owned this vehicle since it was new and have had no major problems mechanically or body issues other than initial water leak around luggage rack and recently started windshield leak (pass. side). I have towed with it, Pop-up camper and boat with 5.0 liter V-8 and AOD Trans. always in D only towing. A/c charged twice in 17 Yrs. Very little surface rust bubbling, just around front edge of hood and a couple of spots on rear doors. She's been a good one!
Roomy, gas mileage not bad for big beast like this 15-18 mpg avg. Optional bed in back nice for long trips
This is a 1988 Model. That will compete with any 1990 model. In and Out
it's better than average. Handling of the vehicle, is outstanding. This
straight six EFI with Air, came from the dealership with a 4 captains chair
type configuration keeping it ideal for almost any use not requiring more
seating. It was custom carpeted and has been kept in above average
condition. Anyone used to driving this size vehicle will appreciate owning this
one. Ford's mileage since I have known of them is always lacking, and this
is no exception. It runs an average city 8-10mpg on the interstate at 70 per
Extremely low total mileage for a vehicle of this type. It is ideal for 4 people
including someone who is handicapped for a comfortable fairly quite ride.
Where I live, we have oaks and I frequently have to clean out the leave from
the air duct system. I haven't found a good asnwer to that. Otherwise, I just
wish Ford knew how to make a vehicle that gets reasonable gas mileage.
