This was the worst vehicle we have ever owned!! We put $6,000 in repairs in it during the 2 years that we owned it. We finally ended up junking it and are still paying for the repairs we did. We hated this van so much that we are very leary of buying a Ford ever again. The repairs we did were timing belt cover seal, alternator, new engine, catalytic coverter (final straw) It let us down on vacation the first summer that we owned it. It was just a terrible, terrible experience!!!
The size and the looks were ok too.
Tear up the engine design and learn from their mistakes! Also at one time the van burning was a desired improvement. It was smoking under the hood and we were sincerely hoping for a fire so that it would explode and we could be done with it!!
