Engine was replaced with a rebuilt
engine around 3,500 miles.
Whine in rear end or transmission
developed shortly after purchasing. No
one at Kayser was able to fix. Don't
Radiator had to be replaced around
Leak in main bearing seal developed
just over 48,000 miles.
Leak in secondary heater developed just
over 48,000 miles.
Also, the body on my 1987 van started
to rust before 50,000 miles, and it had
been under coated via Kayser Ford.
I have been extremely happy with this vehicle. I have gone on 10+ long trips (500+ miles)with it. The driving is less fatigueing, more comfortable, better visibility,definitely a world apart from little crap box cars. It seems to be developing a transmission problem,it has 120,000 miles on it. After all,I bought it used and did not know its maintenance or use history, my suspicion is, the van was used for heavier towing than was good for it. All things considered I'm still happy with it.
We have 3 children, one handicapped and
load up the van for semi-annual trips
of 500 miles. We've never run out of
room and the trips are always
comfortable. The van had a service
contract for 3 years. We've had no
major problems, until last year when we
replaced the transmission after
140,000. Now the A/C is shot and
unrepairable. We'll trade it in and
