Too bad it had to go
By Aerostar fan on


1996 Ford Aerostar XLT 3dr Ext Minivan


My second Aerostar. Bought the van with 50k on it and had to turn it in with 160k for the Cash for Clunker program. It had a tiny gasket leak that threw the air mixture off just enough for the Check Engine light to come on. Cost of repair was more than worth of van, even though it still ran like a top. It wouldn't be able to pass emissions test. Very dependable otherwise. Lots of space for vacation loads. Loved the higher driving level for visibility. Air conditioning great. Cup holders at front were worthless. Turning radius was terrible. I'm really going to miss it come vacations and for hauling stuff. Wish they'd make it again.

Best Features

Great visibility due to driving height. Comfortable seats w lumbar support. Cargo capacity excellent. Decent mileage.

Worst Features

More and better cupholders. Easier engine access.
