Maintenance Access Terrible — Storage shed on wheels, fair highway economy 25+ mpg, very poor access to engine, definitely a step down from first Ford van that was a 1974 E300. Definitely not fun to drive. Purchase was a mistake. Wife's Toyota boring but reliable.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Engine access

Ford Should Make The Aerostar Again — Excellent van. Drives more like a truck than todays minivans since its built on the Ford Ranger Chassy. Bad gas mileage for a V6. Slow acceleration too. The 4x4 works wonders in the winter though. Very versatile and never had serious serious problems

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: Truck sized, comfortable seating, 4 wheel drive, reliable

Cons: Handling, acceleration and gas mileage

Cant Wait For A New One — had the coolant line break recently and repaired it myself. brakes squeak time to time. lots of scratches and dents. interior vinyl is warped. gets decent gas mileage. fun to drive in the winter. alignment always needs to be readjusted.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: its a starter car

Cons: it falls apart

Best — Best in it's class! This is a great overall mid-size van. If you want a nice looking, good performing, solid van for work or for yourself, and you don't want to spend over 30K on a new car, then this van's for you. I have one in silver which I got for 10K. Although it could use more power since it's only 6 cylinder 3.0L, the engine it does use is a WORKHORSE, and has been used overseas in industrial and commercial applications for several years. In China, they've had these engines driving belts that pull massive quarry loads. I have made a few modifications to increase overall hp. I also threw out the small tires it comes with and added larger, more robust looking tires. The ride on this van is excellent. The access cab has seats for two people that are good for long rides.

Pros: BEST

Cons: BEST

Ick! — after the first hundred thousand miles the trans will start not working right. You can hear the putter of the ford engine.. Sucks.. and the body will rust out. If the body doesn't rust then the doors don't work and they'll fall off. It does have good pull on it but to be honest, It liked getting stuck in sand *Like when sand was on the road and everything was dry* Going up hills from a dead stop was usually trouble. I wouldn't recommend this car to Anyone! If you know how to take care of cars and you don't mind fixing things when they go, Have fun. This one will need attention as it gets closer to 150-175 thousand in miles. Engine was good, but parts to it... Not so much...

Pros: pulled a truck three times it's size out of really deep mud

Cons: falls apart, rusts fast

First Drive That I'll Never Forget — This was my first drive. She was quite a car. She was super reliable, getting about 190,000 mils before she went. I could always count on this car to take me (and any riders) to where I needed to go. Too bad Ford doesn't make this anymore. The Aerostar was their crown jewel as far as minivans go. The Windstar was terrible.

Pros: Solid build, super reliable, lots of room, nice styling

Cons: Rare transmission (electronic 4WD Automatic) did it in

Great Van, Wished I Had Purchased One Before Now — I bought it when it was used, and had some problems, however, those were easy to fix and I am happy with the van. Would like a little more pulling power. Over all, great van

Pros: roomy, easy riding, full featured,

Cons: needs electric rear side windows or vent windows in rear.  Some difficulty viewing rear corners when backing.  I see a lot of aerostars with left rear corner dented.  Kind of hard to get to parts of engine.

It Sucks — Great Car. Excellent in the snow. Parts are cheap and easy to fix. Has plenty of power although overall weight is an issue.Added a trans cooler and upgraded radiator cause it tends to run real hot in the summer.Its fun to drive and has a unique front end specific to the grand prix of that year.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Gas Mileage

Cons: Front wheel drive
