We traded off a Acura TL for the van when the 2nd kid was in route. I can not believe we would love this as much as we do. Our van is the LX Deluxe with is an understatment with all the features: Power windows, locks, seats; VCP, wheels, tire pressure monitor, rear a/c, plenty of horsepower. Our second row is a bench since both kids are in car seats this allows easier access to the 3rd row.
VCP player is a great means to quiet the kids; easy to drive; handles great; this may be the best van on the market for the price.
Disc brakes on all four wheels; gas mileage could improve a bit; otherwise Ford has done a great job.
