2000 Ford Conversion Van
By David Rien on
2000 Ford Econoline Wagon E-150 XLT 3dr Van
We purchased this "used" vehicle from the dealer in 2000, it was never registered but had 4,000 miles on it as it was used as a model. It has been a great family car/van. It has never given us any trouble in the ten years that we have owned it and it is now fast approaching 100K miles. We have properly maintained it, so no major issues. Great for long trips especially when you have young children and much better to own than a conventional family van. Now though at 10 years and 100K miles, leather interior is starting to peel away. It might require some transmission work soon, but heck haven't had any transmission issues in 100K miles. My biggest and only complaint, gas mileage.
Fun to drive; high up on road so you can see traffic far down the road. Have driven with full occupancy over 1,000 miles on vacations with no complaints and excellent road handling.
Improve fuel economy. I have never done any towing, but told not recommended as it will ruin transmission when van is fully loaded.
