Aerostar still going strong

1996 Ford Aerostar XLT 3dr Minivan


This van I consider to be one of the lowest maintenance & highest reliability vehicles that I have owned. I drove it 235000 kms on 1 set of plugs. It starts in temps from +30 to - 30 *c, I have had 9 passengers + full camping equipment & loaded 15 foot fiberglass boat & trailer on a 1000km round trip, the van never missed a beat! The v6 Vulcan engine is incredible, I think it will outlast my next vehicle too ( Ford Escape). It has achieved almost 40 kms/imperial gallon on a highway run. Look after this van & I reckon it will look after you. Smashing vehicle, if I could get a new one I would def buy one.

Best Features

Elevated & comfortable ride position. Excellent body styling. Bomb proof motor (V6,3.0L). Strong chassis design for towing & stability.

Worst Features

Front discs/pads wear too quickly. Accessibility of the engine.
