"Second Ford I'd ever owned and if I wasn't on disability I'd get it fixed. It's reliable, instant start up in winter, it's roomy and comfortable. Good on gas with tune up and oil change.Just an all round good Ford product, and I've always been a Chevy girl.Interior is in great shape. Under the hood is almost spotless. reliable just needs body work."

"We bought the GL with the 3.8L engine new back in 1998. I drove it EVERYWHERE and loved it. In 2011, we got a new SUV because of travel baseball, but still used the van as our "workhorse/truck." Though it sat more often than not over the last few years, I recently started driving it again and aside from getting some wheel bearings and the drivebelt pully fixed, it still runs great and still averages about 18 mph!! LOVE LOVE LOVE this van and will continue to drive it until it dies!!"

"I have had this car for over 11 years and have never had a tune up and it still gives me 15-17m.p.g./city and 23-25 on the interstate. Not rated highly by the consumer mags, but has been a great car for me."

"I get 34MPG in the city. I would burn it if I got 16. Really This is worth $3000 with 85000 miles? Try doubling that. I have been looking to buy another one and for 184000 miles I can buy one for $3500...good luck with that though"

"We have lots of fun with this van. Lots of happy memories. It took us to Florida twice. Moved my son to college and then back home when graduated, and now will be using it to move my daughter to college. I just love so many things about this van. I have to say, my air conditioning and heating system is AWESOME!!! Captains chairs for each of us, and then a bench seat for 3rd row seating which fits another 3 adults! leg room is great. I did replace the transmission and had other repairs done to it, but I refuse to give this van up. Knock on wood, this van hardly gave me any problems. Now though, it is rusting out, and needs a paint job. I love my van and I will be giving my van a new fresh paint job. I was looking at other vehicles and thinking about selling my van, but there is nothing that compares to this. I want to keep this van forever!"

"Those are such awesome car. We kept that one for 18 years while all others we changed on regular basis with no special regrets. Those one we wish, we could buy again, just same as they were 18 years ago, but produced in 2014 with new engine, transmission, and parts, to last next 18-20. Sad, sad thing we never found anything like that again. Currently - C. Country/Town comes, on a way, just slightly close to it..."
