1999 Ford Econoline Cargo Van E-250 3dr Van


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

Review

bought vehicle in nov 98, in two months the engine needed to be replaced, it was leaking oil out of head gasket, after 8000 miles it did the same thing again, another new engine was installed, it now has 35000 miles and still leaks, the transmission doesn't shift right when it is cold, it also leaks, the brakes pull violently to one side when braking at highway speeds, the whole van shakes when you drive over 65 mph, worst vehicle i have ever owned, Ford would do nothing for me, i will never buy another
