1990 Ford Aerostar XLT 4.0 V6 from North America
A great family van, that won't break the bank
Power steering pressure line cracked; $25 CDN for the part. Took 15 minutes to install it.
Power locks stopped working. Blown relay.
AC needs a recharge. After about 3 months of ownership. Freon is unavailable in Canada. Way too expensive to get it converted. Almost 2000.00. Not worth it in BC.
This car rides as good as my Grand Marquis.
It has excellent power and towing capacity. Two trips across Canada towing a 19ft trailer.
It handles like a car, and has the room of a bus.
Great gas mileage.
Major complaint is any repair is expensive due to the engine config. Spark plug change is 2.5 hours by the book.
Not a easy vehicle to work on for the novice.
I would buy another in a second, although this one has lots of life left.
It was repainted a year ago, due to the fact it got keyed in the parking lot. But the factory paint looked good up until then.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
