We have the E-350 Extended Cargo (Diesel) for a daily work van and it has been reliable and great for us. The air runs great, we've had very few issues with it over the years. We've always favored the diesel for its long life and so far it's been true with this vehicle as well.

I purchased a 2004 E250 Cargo van in 2006 when I began my mobile automotive repair business. It had 29K miles when I bought it. I used it daily and it was very reliable. 3 years of hard driving and it only needed brakes, oil changes, wiper blades and a drive belt. Unfortunately, I was involved in a head on collision and the van was totaled with 60K miles. I walked away from the accident with a broken bone in my foot, and torn ligaments as well, but otherwise intact. They are great vans and I highly recommend them and a bulkhead if you are carrying tools.

Handles and drives like a large car not
a truck. I love the mirrors for
changing lanes and backing. Many trips
made between Atlanta and Ft.
Lauderdale. Only complaint is the wind
noise. No problems from day one.

Let's face, large vans are purely
utilitarian vehicles. However, if you
need one for whatever reason, Ford
makes a far better product than its
competitors. This is true whether the
yardstick is reliability, drivability,
build quality or passenger comfort.
