1997 Ford E-150 Van XLT Club Wagon 3dr Van


Review

We have used the vehicle primarily for family vacations, which involve camping, skiing, kayaking, and hiking. We did get the non-slip differential which was very helpful in winter conditions. The fuel "economy' leaves something to be desired. For the size it handles quite well on the highway and is fairly quiet. We have had on cylinder head replaced, but we do drive the 5.4L hard and do tend to load the vehicle down with camping or skiing gear for as many as 7.


Favorite Features

Roominess ... sufficient power with the 5.4L engine. Fairly quiet on the road.


Suggested Improvements

Improve gas mileage ... can parts be recycled?

Review

Coolant leaks along with rebuilt engine at 42,000(Yes,I did have the extended warranty, it is a Ford!) Van is slightly underpowered but works for around town driving. Interior has large cargo space and removalable seats make it very flexable.


Favorite Features

Interior space.


Suggested Improvements

Cup holders, only one for driver none for front passenger.

Review

Bought this custom E 150 Van with 4.6/V8 to pull boat and move my family around on longer trips. Great vehicle with lots of space and the TV/VCR keeps things quiet with the offspring. Beats my SUV I had before the Van. Engine is strong enough and gas milage is around 15-16 MPG on the highway. Never had any mechanical problems and winter tires make it driveable in the snow. Would buy it again!
