1990 Ford Aerostar 3dr Minivan


I bought mine from a crooked used dealer (aren't they all?).
The radiator fluid was burning out the tail pipe so I put in some stop leak.
This may have caused some other problems but a lot of things just fell apart
because Ford stands for Fix Or Repair Daily.
The A/C stopped working, the heat sucks in the winter. The driver's side
power door lock stopped working. I was told I needed to replace the
transmission ($1500 Canadian) last year and have been able to drive it still
but it revs high for a few minutes before it kicks into 2nd gear every time you
turn it on and it won't go into reverse now when it's been driven a lot. The
gas mileage is HORRENDOUS.

Best Features

It's very spaceous which is why I bought a mini van. It just doesn't seem that anybody makes a reliable one.

Worst Features

Just buy Japanese.
