Custom Van Nightmare
By dobsonion on
1996 Ford E-150 Econoline 3dr Cargo Van
Ownership of this vehicle has been quite frustrating. * New ball joints right away * New brakes every year or so * New tires every 18 mo * New air conditioning system * "Check engine" light always on * "ABS brakes" light sometimes on * Stalls upon backing, despite $1000 spent to try to fix After talking to folks, I realize the customization package overloads the chassis. It is just to heavy and this causes the problems. Never to buy Ford again.
Huge interior, can haul all the kids and stuff we need. TV/VCR is great! Have slept on the fold-down bed many times.
