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