1997 Ford Aerostar XLT 3dr Minivan


My van has been a blessing to me as I am disabled and it was given with an electric lift. The only problem is I think Ford was stingy on the gas pedal and wish I could get closer to the pedals. I would also wish that the seat belts were made for shorter persons. It's a little hard getting into the front seat from the back area where I keep my electric wheelchair especially when I broke my left ankle. The back seat is difficult to take out when we need more room. On the whole I am very happy with the van just wish the lift could have been put in the back rather than the side as parking can be a problem. I give it a high rating.

Best Features

I like sitting up high and there is room for one electric wheelchair-two with back seat out. It drives well and is good on gas.

Worst Features

Bigger gas pedal and ability to sit closer if short person. Seat belt that doesn't choke you. Handles for getting into the van on both sides and a way to open the back hatch door from inside. Steering is a little loose now.
