Ongoing problems with this van, which now has about 70,000 miles. Have owned since new, with about $7,000 in unscheduled maintenance in 8 years. List of problems: driver seat motor, rear window motor, cooling system leak (despite regular maintenance), air conditioning, cruise control (twice), engine pings loudly, electric rear doors unreliable, rear stereo speaker connections bad. Have decided never to buy a Ford vehicle again.
Good safety record, spacious, comfortable seats, many convenient interior features.
Ford needs to build more reliable, higher-quality vehicles. Based on this lousy minivan, they deserve to go out of business!
