1999 Ford Econoline Wagon E-150 XL 3dr Van


Review

Right from when we bought it, had to rebuild front end including brakes. Almost $,1000. 1 year later the EGR valves went bad. Another almost $500. 1 year later the steering gear box was worn out, the radiator (plastic part on top) cracked, fuel pump went out, tank support beams came loose. All within 3 months. Done, sold it after owning it for only 2years for parts and bought used Import for less than what these repairs would have cost.


Suggested Improvements

Quality.

1999 Ford Econoline Wagon E-150 XL 3dr Van


Review

A RV was out of question for us, so we bought this E-150 conversion van (Coachmen) with V6 engine, as we don't plan to tow. Surprisingly, even the V6 is rated to tow up to 6,000 lbs, what about that? Our van did not have TV/VCR/High Top. Not needed in days with LCD screens and DVD. And a high top has more disadvantages than benefits. The van runs great, sure, the front axle (bushings/ball joints/brakes) wear more due to the weight. Gas mileage is good for a vehicle this size, at least 14 in the city, up to 19 on the highway. Never want to go without one.


Favorite Features

Space, reliability, affordable to maintain


Suggested Improvements

More legroom in front, power ports not behind gear shift.

1999 Ford Econoline Wagon E-150 Chateau 3dr Van


Review

Has been a good, solid vehicle, mechanically. Engine pulls well and has good acceleration getting on the interstate. Had pretty much made up my mind to buy a Ford but out of the spirit of fairness, I tried the GM and Dodge. Main choice for Ford was driver legroom. I'm over 6 feet and the Ford is the only one I fit in. This is the third new Ford I've owned and bought all three without a test drive(1987 F- 150, 1990 Aerostar and this one). I'd buy another, probably, but my wife is ready for something smaller and nimbler.


Favorite Features

The SIZE! Full size van made the most sense. In one year family went from NH to CO, CO to LA twice, LA to NC four times. Kids had all the room they needed in their own chairs. Plus I can fit 4x8 sheets of plywood or sheetrock in the back.


Suggested Improvements

Ford paint sucks!!! Second vehicle I've had problems with and Ford (Corp/dealer) will not correct. Also, brakes stick on occasion.

1999 Ford Econoline Wagon E-350 Super Duty XLT 3dr Ext Van


Review

We have five children and frequently travel long distances to visit extended family. Very comfortable in hot or cold weather. Seats are easy to remove if we want haul cargo (and I mean A LOT of cargo!). Days of the car top carrier are GONE. We can stack luggage for seven behind the rear seat and have all the room we need for our family and a friend or too in the passenger cabin. Powerful? WOW! With the V10 engine we towed our boat through the North Carolina mountains and passed other cars on the interstate. We plan on running this baby into the ground, which will probably take a LONG time.


Favorite Features

Kenworth-like torque, styling, comfort. At 94,000 miles we have only paid for normal maintenance items at expected intervals. I have never needed to add oil between 3,000 mile oil changes.


Suggested Improvements

Running boards should be standard. The 350 series is very tall, and tough to get in and out of. 12v power for rear seats would also be a big plus.

1999 Ford Econoline Wagon E-350 Super Duty XLT 3dr Ext Van


Review

Comfortable seating. A/C works good and distributes well to the back. V-10 engine is very powerful.


Suggested Improvements

I wish the big vans were sold with more upgrade options, similar to the Chateau. Would like to have had 4 bucket seats instead of all benches behind the driver. Also would like to have had leather interior.
