I love mine. It's comfortable and roomy. I've used it to haul around four kids, sometimes more and even a tuba. Repairs have been few and far between. Mostly just routine break changes and some a/c repairs. We fairly tough on our vehicles and the van has held up to everything. It's just now starting to show it's age. But with a little TLC, I think it has a few more good years in it.
interior running lights, comfortable seats, fold down bench in the back.
bigger engine. mine has a 6 cylinder and had very little pick up. I get honked at a lot cause I can't gun it to cross a busy road.
Very smooth on highway, quiet, no wind noise. 35 gallon fuel tank gives you along time between stations. Driven up north also and withstood the salted roads. It is a tank so need a big engine to pull trailer. I have a 351 in mine and it's good.
Interior layout, looks, comfort, very quiet.
Curtain across front for private times, and resting.
I have driven my vehicle both on the road and in town. I find that it is easy to maneuver into tight places. I have had 2 accidents in it and have sustained no injuries myself. I have traveled over 1500 miles across country and slept in the vehicle, the back seat makes into a bed, and found it very comfortable. I bought this vehicle from the original owner at 165,555 miles. I now have 221,200 miles on it and it is just beginning to use a little oil. I love my Econoline.
I love the tilt wheel and the fact that I sit high enough to be able to see more clearly around me. People love to be passengers, they find it to be a very comfortable ride.
This van has shades on the side windows. I wish they had shades on the back windows as well. I would like to have a clothes rod across the back and some way to have a curtain behind the front seat for privacy when sleeping in it.
