Review

Excellent car for a family. Very reliable. Had great fun with a lot of trips with it. Good riding, like a newer car. Overall - very satisfied of it.


Best Features

Upper front console. A lot of storage places. Second sliding door. Ease to get in and out of the third row.


Worst Features

Parking sensors. After all, it's a family car.

Review

I hate this minivan! The gas mileage stinks! And we have tried to give it a tune up, but nothing works. On our best day we get 10mpg in town and like 16 highway. Will buy foreign next time for the better mpg. And I am an "American" car fan!


Best Features

Um....... dual sliding doors, rear climate control.


Worst Features

Take some advice from foreign auto makers on how to improve gas mileage.

Review

Bought with 110,000 miles on it. It now has 125,000. I know that's not much for a review but I have had zero problems with mine. Not even an odd noise. And the paint still looks new.


Best Features

Comfort and styling.


Worst Features

Fold into floor seating.

Review

The engine has inferior parts. Most people have problem with the check engine light coming on and it will run anywhere from 500-2,000 dollars to repair this problem, depending on if your dealer knows what they are doing. Ford knows of the inferior parts and flaws but will not step up to the plate and say we messed up, lets fix it. Ford needs to step up and take responsibility for this problem.


Best Features

Middle seats are captain seats. Helps keep the kids from fighting over seat space or touching each other.


Worst Features

I suggest Ford stops using inferior parts to build their automobiles. I also suggest that Ford take responsibility when there is a problem that affects the majority of the consumers that buy a particular make from them if they want continued consumer loyalty.

Review

This vehicle was great right up to about 75,000 miles. Then things went poorly. I have had electrical problems, the check engine light keeps telling me that an o2 sensor is bad; changed two times. Then at around 105,000 the tranny started acting weird. Stuck in second gear, O/D light flashing. I have the 3.8; many mechanics have refused to tune it up because it is so hard to work on.


Best Features

Great seating plan (captains chairs).
