The Beast
By Dawn Nance. on


1996 Ford Aerostar XLT 3dr Ext Minivan AWD


Owned the 96 XLT AWD EXT for over 5 yrs, miles 136,000. Kids call it the beast in the snow. Seats pop in and out with ease for hauling and sleeping. Great for camping and traveling. 26 mpg on hwy., 21-23 loaded to the MAX, never sags.One major problem with a head replacement at 90,000. Side door does not work properly anymore, had to remove panel for usage. Hauls more firewood, even with the seats in than two loads in a Chevy S-10. Guess who had the last laugh that day. I need a new one now!

Best Features

Removable seats, rear a/c, heat, space in rear, the weight it hauls with no complaints, side window sliders a must have, leg room.

Worst Features

Improve slider door function a must. The tail whips in the wind quite a bit. Mileage is good, but today we need all we can get. I would like to release seat belts at set removal without a tool. Make some new models, mine is not going to last forever.
