This is a well-designed, roomy van and I love it. It is a pleasure to drive. It holds 7 passengers comfortably and with the rear seats out it can hold an amazing amount of items. It is probably the most versatile vehicle that I have ever owned. The motor (3.0) runs perfectly and my mileage is 22 - 25 on the highway. The interior is well laid out and has quality carpeting and upholstery. The captain seats are very comfortable and the Aero star is a good cruiser on long trips. I do wish that the passenger seat moved back and forth and was not stationary.
Everything works on this van even after 150 K of miles. I am impressed! (cruise control, wipers- (front and back), windshield washers, heater, a.c., radio, power windows, interior lights, etc.)
It has a solid "truck-type" body and is well built with very few rattles. I previously had a Ford van and it was loose, noisy, not economical, bulky, and hard to drive and park. My Aero star is tight, quiet, has good mileage, and is a dream to drive and park.
I also like the looks of the Aero star. With the sloped front windshield and the neat, boxy exterior, it suits my needs perfectly. I am a professional person and I drive my clients around with pride in this vehicle; yet, on weekends I can easily haul 4' by 8' sheets of plywood in my Aero star. After driving this vehicle for some time, I have regained my faith in Ford products again. Thank you Uncle Henry for producing a fine vehicle.
