1995 Ford Aerostar 3 Dr XLT AWD Passenger Van ExtendedReview

Overall:

Great To Get Around In — i really like our van. i learned to drive with it, and its lasted longer than any of my other cars. its a bit large, and un-gainly, but its definitely built Ford tough. I really wish they'd bring it back. The inside's ok. I wish the rear seats were easier to use, since supposedly, the back bench is supposed to be able to fold flat or something, but I can't figure out how. and there could be more leg room between the benches. Other than that, i really like this work horse.

Pros: Great for getting around and hauling, and plenty of room for family

Cons: not enough leg room, bench seats too hard to work properly

Good, Reliable Work Van — We've had ours for a while and it still keeps on going. Only problems come from a flooded transmission courtesy of Gulf Coast hurricanes.

Pros: Reliability, comfort, utility

Cons: Not so cool for a college student to drive...

Go Places And Haul Stuff —

I've owned 2 of the longer Aerostars. Traded to an AWD in 1995 because the 2WD was useless on icy Calgary streets. It has been rock solid, leaving many SUVs in the dust since then. I have towed out my share of stuck cars (even got a 5 ton truck up a slick hill). My wife loved the passing power. It still accelerates strongly to stay ahead of the pack. Maintenance has been average but with 265,000 km it burns no oil and still has lots of passing power (4.0 L). The transmission was a bit wonky last year but after changing the fluid/filter and using some tranny treatment, it is now back to normal. Shifter cable broke and then a column shifter bolt broke. Cheap to fix but made for some interesting adventures. We drove it for a week without being able to shift! The only rust on it is ahead of the rear wheel on the driver's side (a left-over from an early rear-ending, I suspect). The interior has held up well. Fabric is all OK but some of the big plastic parts are cracked. It has gotten messy inside the last few months but is still an excellent 7 passenger ride. In the past two years I have replaced all the shocks, PS pump, thermostat, front bushing and a few other parts. Considering the mileage it still handles and drives well. My wife took it airborne over a huge bump in 1996 so replacing a few choice suspension parts is not too surprising at this stage. Next project is new tires. I use Slick-50 or Synthetic Oil for all my vehicles and strongly recommend using one of them. Excellent cold weather starting at -40 and serious overheating protection (my old Bronco lives on). I expect the transmission may sideline this vehicle in a few years but, until then it will be my trusty hauler of people and things. I can haul full sheets of plywood and 12 foot lumber inside with the doors closed! I even fit a Sears Garden tractor inside. I was attracted to the massive trunk behind the rear seat (5 kids will do that to you). It got seriously unstable at 45 mph when I overloaded it and a U-haul with around 5000 lb of stuff. Am I bad, or what! Made for a very long Texas to Canada trip (but we did make it).

Owner for 12 years, 0 months

Miles Driven per Year:265,000

Pros: Family carrying capacity, AWD capability, Lots of power (4.0 L)

Cons: Gas mileage
