Pros: "great price, fun, and smooth ride."

"First, the suspension is perfect and power is alright, and very easy to drive. The design is comfortable and cozy, however many only have cloth. Exterior is SPORTY (i think). Very comfortable but slow acceleration for freeway. Great power through 0-55 mph. Great quality though and not much to worry about. I don't recommend taking it above 75 mph (you can if you want to) Just don't do it often. Very reliable, and value is great for an excellent condition. I recommend this car for anybody."

Pros: "Very reliable and practical - more room than a car"

"Used for work driving all day long to many stops. It is very reliable. I don't like it as a car for long drives as the driver's seat is not a power seat, there is no cruise control or cd player. Great work or transportation to work vehicle. Middle seat is removable for more room if carrying large items."

"I've owned a '96 3.0 for over ten years. IN that time I've driven approx 80k miles. It now has 155k on her. I've had to repair the ac at $900+, the upper tie rods, the radiator, the cat converter. NO new fuel pump, no new alternator, no new starter...virtually nothing engine related at all.. I still can't believe it.. Besides the usual brakes, battery, tires etc... it has honestly been the most reliable vehicle I've ever owned. Out of about ten cars in my lifetime so far. The engine still starts every time instantly I couldn't ask for a more reliable, smooth running engine BUT...... Man oh man it rides like an old farm truck...always has, always will.. roll over an acorn and it feels like a speed bump. I replaced tie rods and bushings and front shocks on it thinking that might help... not a bit. It just has a very hard, rigid suspension. They had no clue how to compete with a Chrysler ride but the engine and transmission reliability make up for it. I am just now starting to experience a little torque converter shudder when I push it. The 3.0 has little power to begin with and going up steep hills with any kind of load really tests it. I can pretty much floor it and it will only go so fast but it still shifts smooth and clean every time...just has no real pull or push to it now.. It never really could get out of it's own way but I get about 24 mpg's highway so I don't mind. Overall.. I really love the old girl. She's taken me all over the country and never left me stranded. One of Fords best jobs...too bad they screwed up the Windstar and Freestar after these. Every now and then they get one right. They had these right...at least mine."

"This van has been a workhorse for us, being used for 20 yrs. for family camping trips, then short trips and hauling. It has never had a serious mechanical problem. Everything works fine all the time. There is a ton of space for hauling, with split back seats for long items. We have even removed the back seats and used them for a couch of sorts when camping. We will be sorry to part with this van."

Pros: "every thing"

Cons: "looks, but it is my UGLYSTAR"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I call it my ugly star, but don't judge by looks. I have owned this car for 5 years and I love it. it has always gone rain snow ice it just goes. the electronic 4 wheel srive works just great, the a/c is like a freezer, the heat is hot. I have not had a minutes trouble out of my ugly star!!! 15 m.p.g. local not bad for a 4x4 with a 4.0 liter v6. regular repairs for a car 19 years old, breakes,rotors, drums shoes muffler and tail pipe, shocks my aerostar is in good shape and it's value is 2800 dollars I would not take 5000 for it, not bad for a car I paid $1200 for 5 years ago it cost me $800 to get it through Maryland inspection, I could go on and on but I think you get the picture."
