98 Isn't bad at 99K (knock on wood)!
My biggest complaint is the stupid things that should never go wrong - power locks, door chimes and interior lights not shutting off. If the brake light fuse goes out, you cannot put the vehicle in gear! Ford is definitely lacking for both the electrical design and the cheap components!
At 99K, it has been a good vehicle. Be sure to flush the brake fluid at 75K. Change Trans fluid every 30K, and do the filter every other time. It gets black. The van runs great, and the engine uses no oil. It is not as good as my 93 Escort, but has been reliable.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
