2005 Ford Econoline Wagon E-350 SD XLT 3dr Ext Van (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

This is the church van used 4-6x week. Great van gets the members to/from safely. ride is very comfortable for such a big van, ours is 15 passenger. Smooth on hwy, not bad on side streets with LOTS of Michigan potholes. No repairs so far @245,000. Sounds like brand new. No noises. Plastic interior is a little cheap. Triangle piece on door comes off if lightly pulled. Doors close tight no rattles. Seats are easy enough to get in/out. Simple lever system. I love driving it, but hate backing it up. It is huge! Good views all around, no real blind spots except in back when people walk to close to bumper, scary. I don't bounce like in trucks that's nice. No complaints really


Best Features

High off the ground, so I am glad for the handle in the front seats to pull my 5'8" 250# body up with. The running boards are a must, love them. CD player great no matter where you are in the van. Can hear the Gospel Choirs jamming in every seat. A/C works great in front, and first 2 rows of back seats with the roof vents.


Worst Features

The vents in the back really don't blow hard enough to work well. The fans are not powerful enough to force the air to the last 2 back seats. Add standard back up sensor at bumper level for pedestrians. You can see vehicles fine, but pedestrians disappear. Can't see people when backing out of parking spaces if closer than 7' to rear bumper. Adjust transmission to get better mileage on highway and city. A five speed should be standard to increase gas mileage. 15 mpg highway? You can do better. I average 13 mpg combined.

2005 Ford Econoline Wagon E-150 XL 3dr Van (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Big comfortable seats, decent driving position despite engine cover. This thing is big though and I think carefuly where I park it. Scary to drive on icy roads especially if windy. 10,000 miles no problems so far.


Best Features

I have five cupholders on engine cover, decent power and economy with 4.6, good ride.


Worst Features

Lots of wind noise around windshield. Some kind of low rumble at about 55mph inside.

2005 Ford Econoline Wagon E-150 Chateau 3dr Van (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I actually have the Chateau E150 with the 5.4 V8 (not listed here). Haven't had it too long yet, but love the power and the room. Compared to large SUV's with much less room and worse gas mileage, it's much cheaper!


Best Features

Room for large families and their stuff, plus some friends and their stuff!


Worst Features

Interior design and features could be improved and spruced up a bit.
