Perfect Colorado Family Car
By wwadams on
Vehicle1995 Ford Aerostar XLT 3dr Ext Minivan AWD
ReviewWe haul everything everywhere with this
van. Despite warnings about
potentially faulty automatic
transmissions, we've not had ANY
mechanical system problems. We bought
the Aerostar because we wanted 4WD and
we liked the fact that it's built on a
truck, not car, chassis. When pulling
our 22' sailboat or horse trailer (we
only pull one horse, since two is on
the hairy edge of this 6 cyl engine's
capability), sometimes the AC cuts off
going up a hill. But at 5-9,000 feet
altitude, we think that's acceptable.
With a carload of kids, I like the
dependabiity and knowledge that my
Aerostar will get me safely and
predictably to my destination.
Best FeaturesLots of seats, 4WD and truck chassis keeps me from bottoming out over rough roads.
Worst FeaturesSlight extension to the middle seat would retain access to back seat and enable three (albeit "skinny hiney") seat belts. Would be nice to accomodate two families of 4.
