1996 Ford Aerostar XLT 3.0 from North America
The rear axle oil seal was replaced at 40,000 miles.
Alternator was replaced at 183,000 miles.
Power steering rack and pump replaced at 200,000 miles.
Front air blower just replaced at 215,000 miles.
Otherwise only routine maintenance such as fluid changes, brakes and shocks is all that has been done.
This is the second Aerostar that I have owned. Both have been extremely reliable and economical to operate.
Front seats are very comfortable for long trips, and the high seating position affords very good visibility.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
