1988 Ford Aerostar from North America
Leaked oil on our driveway every day.
Air conditioner blew out 3 times.
Rusted like crazy.
Transmission went out twice, alternator went out twice. Became stranded a few times.
Felt loose when driving it. brakes were bad, rack and pinion went out.
Engine needed to be repaired.
Nothing but a piece of junk. Lots of other things needed to be repaired. We just ended up getting rid of it. Cost us about $3,000 to get it fixed, in the last 2 years. It would have taken another $3,000 to fix it up again. Not worth it. Cheaper to buy another car.
If you're going to buy an Aerostar, buy a newer model. Watch out for rust though. Fords are notorious for that.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I hate my 88 aerostar. I have looked at this piece of junk sitting for the last six months, I have bought a contour since then. My aerostar's transmission has gone 3 times now.
I am mad!!!
