2001 Ford Econoline Wagon E-350 SD XLT 3dr Ext Van (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Every piece of plastic has hit the floor or gone out the door on this thing. That's not the clincher. With less than 30k on this animal, I am replacing the transmission. The dealer wouldn't budge on the $3500 repair. This is the last in a series of repairs. I'm trading it in for a Chevy Express.


Favorite Features

The one piece of trim that stayed on.


Suggested Improvements

Make "QUALITY" job 1.

2001 Ford Econoline Wagon E-150 XL 3dr Van (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

My van is a very good van and especially good because of its size (which in fact, was the overall reason we were looking for a van) It's fuel economy, well, we weren't expecting a prius, so it could have been worse. The exterior is very acceptable for a 01 and the interior is very well thought out, with lots of cup holders and other thoughtful touches, although perhaps too well thought out; I find gum and candy wrappers all over the place from our kids. I commute many miles daily to chi, so I am looking for a new car but Big Red has served me very well. Although I have had only one problem with the engine sometimes it does not operate when its hot, but Keep making econolines, Ford! Thank you


Favorite Features

Cup holders, seats, size, affordability, reliability(for the most part)


Suggested Improvements

Fix engine problem. Other than that none.

Excellent all around vehicle. Very capable for trailering a 3500 boat & trailer. Flexible interior with removable rear bench seat for cargo hauling.

Very steady on the road. Good veihcle for pulling boat trailer. Comfortable seating.


Suggested Improvements

Transmission has a "klunk" and jolt just prior to stop. Ford company acknowledges this, but states there is no remedy. Need better noise insulation.

2001 Ford Econoline Wagon E-150 XLT 3dr Van (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This is the first full size van we have owned. After 3 mini-vans, it has been a wonderful experience owning something that is so large and comfortable to drive. We have driven from NC to Texas twice and have made several shorter state-to-state trips. With front and rear air, airplane lighting, and bucket seats all around, the travel is comfortable for all.


Favorite Features

Lots of space, large seats, all around air and lighting. Also, the privacy from the large tinted windows with shades installed make it convenient to sleep when traveling.


Suggested Improvements

Make towing packages standard equipment, as well as CD/Cassette/AM/FM stereos.

Review

Our 2001 E-150 with Traveler package is the most versatile vehicle I have ever owned. It is the ultimate trip vehicle with the VCP with its cargo room and towing capability. We have almost 50K miles and haven't had any mechanical issues. When purchased the vehicle was about $7 K less than a comparable SUV and about $4 K less than a comparable minivan. Other than off roading it is much more functional than a SUV. Mileage isn't even that bad (up to 18 mpg), comparable to many smaller SUV models.


Favorite Features

Cargo space, towing capability, Traveler package features.


Suggested Improvements

Several persistent rattles are annoying.
