Bought this program vehicle in 1997.
Had 22,000 miles and now has 120,000.
Was very good (although it had some
irritating electrical problems) until
it hit 100,000 miles. Needed a
transmission - surprise! Got a
remanufactued one for $2,400. New
tranny is fine. Terrible electrical
system now requires trips to the shop
every few months. Also has some
problems when just started and idling.
Good for comfort, and was pretty
reliable until it hit 100,000 miles.
Looked good and felt good for many
Electrical system is the worst! Ford
lost lots of customers because of the
transmission and head gasket problems
and unwillingness to stand behind its
product. We have chosen to buy a Dodge
Grand Caravan as our next van.
