1997 Ford E-150 XL Club Wagon 3dr Van
Review
Our 1997 Club Wagon 4.2L V6 has 206,500 miles and we still use it frequently for our family. We bought the van when it was a year old and since then have only had a few major repairs -- like a transmission tailshaft seal, alternator replacement and some sporadic brake problems. The motor runs well and has decent power for a V6, but it isn't getting the best economy anymore -- about 16 mpg. It still has the original 4r-70W 4 speed automatic transmission. It slips a little in reverse and shudders at stops once in a while but otherwise no major problems. The brakes aren't the best, we tend to go through front pads frequently (every 30K or so).
Favorite Features
Very simple & easy to use controls. Plenty of space and decent seats for a long ride.
Suggested Improvements
Improve brake wear-- perhaps go to a bigger set with 4-wheel discs, and change front suspension to double-wishbone to give better handling & tire wear.
