2008 Ford Econoline Wagon Van E-350 SD XLT 3dr Van (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Our family bought this van after previously owning only mini-vans. It is nice to be able to fit friends and family in one vehicle when traveling to various school functions. It has been completely reliable and easy to drive--thanks to the rear sensors when backing up! Sound system is great and the comfort of rear heating and A/C keeps everyone happy. Fuel mileage runs about 12 mpg around town. It drives the same loaded to the gills as it does with one person.


Best Features

Sits high up, fits 12 people, great sound system, backup sensors


Worst Features

Ride can be a bit bumpy at times, fuel economy isn't great at 12 mpg

2008 Ford Econoline Wagon Van E-350 SD XLT 3dr Van (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I have owned many ford f350 trucks, and switched to a ford e350 van to be able to haul more people and keep my tools inside. All my trucks had problems and this van is no different. The trim was falling apart and making noise, the transmission overdrive went out, and now the fan motor has lost one of it's four speeds. I bought it when gas was outrageous and saved a load of money, which I will use to put in some real seats, and have some of the ultra cheap interior plastic panels replaced. If you need a big hauler and lots of space then go for it. Past history has shown me after some very troubling problems, eventually everything gets fixed for free by ford and then you are good to go.


Best Features

Great view, lots of space, good mileage for a giant box - 18 on the highway, 11 around town. Fantastic price. Great A/C - get the dual a/c's they work good. Lots of companies offer seats, dash kits, bumpers, etc.


Worst Features

The steering is a handful on the highway. Can Ford make the plastic interior pieces any cheaper? Why can't you build a king ranch van?

2008 Ford Econoline Wagon Van E-350 SD XLT 3dr Ext Van (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I have been driving 12 and 15 passenger vans for decades.We replaced our last 2000 Chevy 15 passenger van with the 2008 Ford E-350 15 passenger van and have had serious problems with the Ford steering and handling.The vehicle has enormous play in steering column at higher speeds on highway with significant drifting which is dangerous when passing tractor trailers. The van has been in repair shop 3-4 times (4000 miles) for steering issues and was realigned twice already. Roll Stability Control (RSC) sensors have been replaced at only 3000 miles and after replacing are defective again requiring another replacement. Plastic dashboard panel was replaced due to warping and it had only 2000 miles.


Best Features

Cargo space and exterior design. Side cargo door opening very wide.


Worst Features

The driver and passenger interior area is crowded, tight, and cheaply made. Available options, appointments are inferior to competitor Chevy Express, e.g.Ford does not offer rear or exterior mirror window defrosters amongst other things.
