1999 Ford Econoline Cargo Van E-250 3dr Ext Van


Review

I ordered this beast from the dealership. I wanted it to work like an ox and drive like a kitten. That's what I got. This is one of the best trucks-I've ever owned. It will pull with a full trailer and a full load in the box. The tilt, cruise,p/w,pdl. and upgraded seats are real comfortable on long runs. I can't say enough good things about this truck. The key is good and faithful maintenance.This truck will swallow a load and keep on going. It looks and feels like a truck.


Best Features

comes to work everday


Worst Features

better weatherstripping and clips on doors.

Review

This van has to have a new tranny every summer! I have 82,000 miles on it and have had 4 tranny's put in. They have a transmission fluid over heating problem. It gets too hot and the cooler is too small; gets plugged and fries the tranny. Got tired of dealer so passed on having them stick in another bad tranny. Put in our own cooler, switched to synthetic fluid. So far so good. Van has serious tranny problems and service has really stunk. This is the first year we have so far so good got through the summer. Never again! What a nightmare this van has been. Run like the wind...


Best Features

I liked the body style better than other large vans. Seats are nice and comfy. The V10 is nice for getting up and going.


Worst Features

TRANSMISSION! Ford really needs to fix their constant transmission problem. Make a bigger Transmission cooler with bigger tubing so it won't plug. Recommended fluid expands and blows seals. Suggest synthetic fluid.

Review

Having owned a '93 Taurus (bought new & a very sour lemon (blown engine @103K miles), the '99 E250 was a chance. Had the truck built with all of the toys, incl. GVW of 8300 lb. This 'Green Monster' has performed flawlessly, with the exception of front end alignment @ 10K, and EGR valve @ 35K. The 5.3L engine is noisy when cold, the drive train whines @ 40 mph.


Best Features

5.3L V8 is a torque monster. Avg. MPG is 15.2, with a high of 17.9, & a low of 13.1 mpg. Starts easily @ -24 f. Tows a trailer well. Looks better than Chevy. This truck rides like a truck, but has no rattles after 53K miles .


Worst Features

Quieter engine, quieter drive train. Cargo area vents, door lock swich @ cargo door. C'mon Ford, improve your reputation. Mac
