Edmunds' Expert Review

1997 Highlights

While its cousins, the F-150 and F-250, receive ground-up redesigns, Ford's full-size vans receive minor enhancements. The new 4.2L V6 replaces the 4.9L as standard, and optional power plants now include the new Triton 4.6L and 5.4L V8s. A new front bumper and grille refresh the outside while a revised dash and front console, redesigned seats, an extra power point and seatbelt pre-tensioners round out the inside changes. A 3.31 limited-slip rear axle is offered and the three-speed automatic transmission is deleted.

1997 E-350 with Powerstroke Diesel
We bought it to haul around the family and also for use in our business hauling people. It currently has 365K on original engine and tranny. Not sure how or why the Powerstroke got in there, but it has to be the best engine for this type of vehicle. It will cruise at 70 mph all day and night while hauling 3000 lbs of canoes. Everything in it was built for heavy use. Seats are all in decent shape with only moderate cracks in the vinyl. Extremely utilitarian, with rear ac/heat fan control being the only creature comfort. Probably a prison transport vehicle due to odd wear patters in ceiling. It gets nearly 20 MPG on highway. The thing was meant to do nothing but haul people, and it performs!
Electrical problems abound
From the day I purchased this vehicle, the idiot lights malfunctioned and once a year I have to replace the windshield due to defect in design. It has a lot of pep still at over 300,000 miles and it is still used daily. No major problems to date other than regular maintenance.
1997 E350 Chateau Club Wagon
Joe Arkin,10/02/2002
Having been a van owner since 1973, this vehicle -by far- is the best full size van I've ever owned. There is no better vehicle for traveling. The van has incredible load capacity and passenger room. The 4 captain's chairs provide the type of comfort one needs for long distance traveling as well as the ease of getting in and out of the van. Rear heat/AC controls provide the back seat passengers with full control to their liking. The AM/FM/Cassette with 6 speakers distribut the sound beautifully. Being able to move between front and back as full sized adults is an excellent attribute when traveling as well.
Great BIG Van
We've only had this van a year (bought it used), but it has 150,000 miles and is still going strong--runs great, looks great, and we get 16-17 mpg on the highway (only 12-13 city). We couldn't be happier with it!

Should I lease or buy a 1997 Ford E-350?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
