Pros: "Handles well, and engine size is more than adequat"

Cons: "Engine electronics after five years are failing"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 7

"Having owned this vehicle since new, the experience of owning this vehicle is mixed. The front suspension has been suspect since owning it, the transmission does not slide into the next gear without some form of thump, and the engine electronics (ignition packs, sensors) have been absolutley horrible and expensive to replace. The engine is down right peppy, and it handles very well. Traction control is excellent. the interior is what you would expect for a family mover, but overall has held up well for 8 years. Airbags are strategically placed and the van's appearance is still appealing. Would I get another one? Not really. The van performed adequately, but at the higher side of mileage, maintenance costs that requires a dealer to perform is a major cause for concern."

"I didn't want the soccer mom van. The MPV allowed me the space to carry people, move beds, and relax in comfort by rearranging the seats as needed. I carried boats on the the roof rack. This vehicle is agile in the drive, interior furnishing and carry load. I am trilled with my MPV."

"Bought a 04 used in 05. It had been a Ford "Company" van for 10 months. Every available option on our ES. The value is what I think is the best. We got a lot of van for the money especially compared to a Honda or Toyota. The quality might not be as high as their's but it's been good for us. We've had no problems with it other than a minor "click" when first applying the brakes at low speed that we had looked at right after we bought it, they fixed it but it came back. It was a minor annoyance then, and now we don't even notice it. We like the features like the sliding seats and the roll down windows in the back doors. We've got three kids (ages 7,7 and 2)and it fits everyone nicely although we could use more cargo space occasionally. It's a comfortable ride although it could be quiter. We replaced the stock tires at about 27,000 miles which has quieted it down some and helped it ride better. The stock tires were AWFUL for ride and traction. I'm not sure if it's due to the ES package with 17" wheels or not. Maybe the 16" are better? The van is a little too small for me because I'm used to driving my Expedition, but my wife loves it as her daily driver and It's what we usually take when we don't need to tow the boat or need the extra cargo space. Seems like the gas mileage could be better, but it's not bad. We plan on keeping it for several more years if that's any indication of how we feel about it."
