Luckily I bought the 70000 mile
extended warranty. At 50000 miles the
transmission went out requiring a
complete rebuild. At 65000 miles the
engine leaked coolant into the
crankcase requiring a new
longblock.Most irritating was that the
radiator was replaced by Ford with a
faulty radiator which I drove 18000
miles in 8 months---Fords policy is 12
mo. or 12000---which means I had to Pay.
In one three month period the
dealership had the van longer than I
did!.I hope that this is indicative of
the newer vans--my 1990 has 200000 on
it and going strong.Warning! don't buy
the V6 standard engine---it's
absolutely gutless in every sense of
---Fantastic rear view mirrors and
---Really quiet for a cargo van
---Awsome standard radio
---Really good A/C
Build a drivetrain that holds up!
Warranty replacement parts that are not
subject to wear and tear for the full
twelve months. I think a radiator
shouldn't wear out in 18000 miles.
