Pleased — Great family vechile. It was a good step up from a Tempo. It serve me well for 7 years. I towed a tent trailer with it and it had lots of power to to do no problem. For a first year production van I did have much trouble with it.

I Think Its On The "do Not Buy" List!! — I liked the look of the inside and outside, just wish the repairs weren't so extensive. At least it always broke down in a safe area! Drove very well in the winter. Handling the ice and snow nicely. I don't recommend it

Love Of My Life — Transmission sucks in theses vans! But what can you expect from ford. Other than that, very sturdy everyday van. I was a teenager when I had mine, and beated on it very hard, but it never stopped going. Very reliable van. If you like loose steering you'll love these vans. I loved driving it, suspension was good, had a nice quit bouncy ride. Very roomy on the inside, seats come out. Plus all the windows in the back were tinted completely black, great for privacy ;)! Gas mileage was alright. So much fun to drive in all seasons, I miss it dearly!

Cons

It blows

It's Not Good, But Its What I Live With As A Teen — I am almost certain that the car's body is falling off the chassis. it has about 130,000 miles and its brakes, paint, and bumpers are rubbish probably from my brother running into thousands of curbs. the back seat is non-existent and the radio doesn't work. at every turn in makes a different rattle or frightening noise.

Haven't Found Out Why It Goes Dead. — I've visited a car repair forum because I was having issues with the vehicle going dead when it's not moving. I noticed other owners had the same problem. I barely drive the van because I am tired of having repairs done on it. However, that doesn't stop it from breaking down or needing repairs.

Great Van To Own — This has been a great van. Have had this for 4 yrs. Body, no rust, interior execelent condition. We have had only one major problem--- cost about $ 600.00. Any dents or abrassions I take credit for all. Prefermance great execpt my curb hitting. I guess for not driving for 5 yrs, you have to learn again:-)
