1999 Ford Econoline Wagon Van E-150 XLT 3dr Van


Review

Bought this van for $400. cut the exhaust off and entered it in several burnout contest at the fair until the tires blew off it. Raced it threw the woods smashing it into trees. Jumped it who knows how many times. Got rear ended parked in the street. Completely totaled the kids car out and just dented my bumper. After all this abuse for one year the only repairs it has had was a bent trailing arm and blew a brake line.

1999 Ford Econoline Wagon Van 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.

1999 Ford Econoline Wagon Van 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.


Best Features

Space, reliability, affordable to maintain


Worst Features

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

1999 Ford Econoline Wagon Van 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.


Best 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.


Worst Features

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