Ford Aerostar Overview
Launched in 1985, the Aerostar was Ford's first entry into the minivan market. Like its popular Econoline panel vans, the Aerostar was built on a truck chassis: the upside of this was rugged durability, but the downside was a less agile feel than many other minivans of the day.
The Aerostar's design reflected the futuristic look that was popular in the mid '80s. Its front end seems almost reminiscent of the early space shuttles, a resemblance Ford capitalized on in its advertising.
Unfortunately, the Aerostar's safety and recall record was a little too reminiscent of the space shuttle's. Issues with the electric system and with the transmission, especially in the 1990s, led to pretty extensive recalls on some models.
Still, if you've got a good Aerostar, it seems to live forever. The sturdy body construction and solid platform make this reliable and functional transportation.
The Aerostar began to be phased out in favor of the Windstar in 1995; 1997 was the last model year for the Ford Aerostar minivan.
