1997 Ford Aerostar XLT 4.0 6 cylinder from North America
My Ford Aerostars have been the most reliable vehicles I have ever owned
Intake manifold gasket had leak, would not pass state inspection without replacement.
New Exhaust System.
Rust in passenger door sill.
These vans are a great used car bargain for someone looking for a reliable, roomy vehicle that can go from being a work truck to a family van. This is my second Aerostar. I wish that I had purchased it new, but if this one is like my previous one, they get better after 100,000 miles. Look around at how many are still on the road, they haven't produced them in 10 years.
They are not the best handling vehicles (the steering is not great), but they rarely break down.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I totally agree these are the best vans Ford has built. I have had two 1993's. I gave the first one to a fellow associate at work and it now has over 331,000 miles on it! My "new 93" has 134,000 miles on it. Really wish Ford would bring these vans back with two doors and retain the same rear wheel driveline.
