1995 Ford Aerostar XLT 3dr Ext Minivan AWD


My third AWD Aerostar and best yet. I own a second 1995 AWD, my first Aerostar was a 1990 short van. All 3 vans have have been rock solid dependable with normal maintenance issues such as front CV boots, steering knuckles/bearings being the most costly, occurring in the 130-140K mile range. These vans were built at Hazelwood, MO by some of the best people that Ford has. I enjoyed working with St Louis Assembly as a supplier QA Engineer for over 13 years so I speak from experience. Both vans have over 184K and plenty of life remaining. I am now considering another 97 AWD model. Gas mileage = 17- 20mpg & same as a Windstar which has less room and utility. Aerostar's build quality is far superior.

Best Features

All Wheel Drive - GREAT in snow & gravel. Easy maintenance; oil & air filter, brakes, cooling, etc, but spark plug & wires are hard. Tips: Inspect CV boots for tears at oil changes, Rotate tires regular & replace 4 tires at same time - minimizes potential transmission and transfer case problems.

Worst Features

Ford needs a medium van design choice again. With the new multi-vehicle build plants like Dearborn this should not present a capacity or extra plant issue. Only cost to design. Ford may find a ready market of buyers for it.
