2002 Ford Econoline Wagon Van E-150 XL 3dr Van (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

We bought this van in winter of 2004 as mainly, a people carrier as there was only a short commute back then. but this van quickly turned into a mainly all purpose car, groceries, long cross-country trips, towing, you name it. For such a giant of a car, it handles well in the (It's not a Subaru) and when we moved and the work commute turned into a hour long one to Chicago, it served very well, although the MPG it delivers convinced us to get a 2007 Toyota Prius. We have logged 111,000 miles on it but with the exception of a starting problem (can't start if the engine is too warm sometimes)we hope to get years more out of it, and has been very reliable. Save your money, I suggest! Get a Ford


Favorite Features

"Doghouse" Cup holder. Seats. Shifting. A/C. Safety. 10 passenger hauling. Tow capacity. Reliability.


Suggested Improvements

Already taken care of by the newer model. Love our van.

2002 Ford Econoline Wagon Van E-150 XLT 3dr Van (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I have replaced the front brakes including rotors every 3 months approx. 3000-4000 miles. Ford told me this was normal wear for this vehicle. The price to have this done at a Ford Dealer averages $800. The tires wear out quickly on this Van as well.


Favorite Features

I love the quad seating and video system. It makes long trips with the kids fun.


Suggested Improvements

The suspension and braking need to be beefed up considerably to eliminate the excessive wear on the brakes and tires.

nice van, mediocre fuel economy, very comfortable, minor build quality issues which have been corrected under warranty. would definitely buy another one when this one wears out. 5.4 engine is the way to go.


Favorite Features

comfortable smooth ride.

rear disc brakes, improved fuel economy, more stout engine oil dipstick.

2002 Ford Econoline Wagon Van E-150 XLT 3dr Van (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

We have had mini-vans and sedans. Looked at SUV's for the extra space but found the full-size Traveler package fo the Ford van beats everything hands down on space and the basic comforts now offered in travler packages like video, game plug in ports, reclining buckets for all four passangers up front, leather seats and lots and lots of cargo room. Plus the baby can haul any camper or boat you may wish to pull down the highway. We are very budget minded so one way to offset the fuel economy issue is that we use this for our only vehicle. It has handled very nicely around town and obviously excels on the open road.


Favorite Features

1. Space 2. Reclining buckets for the kids 3. Entertainment console 4. Sit up high on the road


Suggested Improvements

1. They need to give more leg room 2. AC not cool enough around town

2002 Ford Econoline Wagon Van E-150 XLT 3dr Van (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This van is my daily commuter; It's got the Traveller package, and the kid quiet option (2 screens with a VCP). I've always been 'get the bigger motor' but the 289 (4.6L) v8 is just fine. I get about 20-21 on highway, 15-17 mixed. the ONLY thing is it's a rear wheel driver, so I'll have to retrain myself for winter. Don't waste your money on some tinny, mini-van. They don't have nearly the room and cost about $2-$3K more


Favorite Features

The ride height. Nobody cuts me off that much.


Suggested Improvements

They do make an E350 version, but try and find it.
