Pulled a boat back from a different province with my stepdads 01 sport. Liked it so much I bought the identical van. Other than the typical ford engineering that makes it hard to work on yourself its been a great family van. I pull trailers with it all the time and use it for road trips with the family. It gets great gas mileage,has lots of power and has no problem with the cruise set at 145km/h. I think a tranny cooler helps deal with trans problems.
Power,gas mileage. Stable for towing and high speed cruiseing.
Needs beefier suspension front and rear. Ford really needs to make their products backyard mechanic friendly
