2008 Ford Econoline Cargo E-150 3dr Van (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
i am a painting contractor and drive my van every day. this is my third ford van and the improvements for '08 on are about time. brakes are great, steering is exellent. the van is quite heavy-duty, more so than the chevy. the suspension is more robust. don't buy '07 or earlier models, the brakes are undersized, wear out quick and the front end needs frequent alighnment. those problems are gone now. the van is great.
brakes, suspension and steering. very reliable
i have the old dashboard. the new one, '09 on, is better.
