1998 Ford E-250 Econoline 3dr Van
All my driving is in town which is much harder on vehicle than highway. I have had only one problem in 8 years, a sensor failed under warranty. The electric mirrors are flimsy and could use improvement. The rear suspension (8600 lb.) is a little overrated as the springs have been flattened since I first loaded it up with all my tools. The paint on the bumpers is very poor quality. Since I have no repair costs except for one brake pad replacement on the front, and the routine fluid and filter changes I would say it is very dependable. I have never had it tuned up yet. It handles very well at highway speeds is very quiet. I have always been GM fan but I am impressed with this van.
Style and appearance of body. Power for a 5.4L engine. Comfort of seats.
Electric mirror stability. Paint on bumpers. Springs and chassis have excessive rusting. Inside latch on rear doors, I caught it on my tool belt and broke it. Flimsy.
