1996 Ford Aerostar 3 Dr XLT AWD Passenger Van ExtendedReview
Aerostar, The First — I have had 5 of these vans. Purchased the first one in 1985 when they were introduced. Had nothing but great experieces with this vehicle. First used as a family van and now I use them for a work van in my trade business. I have had two of the electornic all wheel drive versions and they preform super in the winter on ice and snow.
Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)
Pros: Large interior space, great visibility.
Cons: A little trucky, thats why the women did not like it.
