I am 18 and living with my parents so there are 6 aerostar sitting in our driveway, I own 2 my parents own 4. My 92 short body xlt 3.0L has 254,000 miles on it. it was my parents 1st aerostar, then they where going to get rid of it but gave it to me instead. I am in the process of fixing it up, replacing: radiator, water pump, power steering pump, timing chain, heater core, and rebuilding the transmission.
My 97 long body xlt 4.0L has 91,000 miles on it. I bought this one a couple of months ago because I didn't think I would have my other one ready before I started collage and I needed a car. and I wasn't 100% sure the other one would work. I replaced the radiator and worked on the a/c, the compressor went bad. My parents have a 92 long body 4.0L. 66,000 miles on it. they just recently bought it. had to replace the alternator. it looks like the trans. was worked on. they also have 3 97 long body 3.0L. none have had to have parts replaced. 1 has 68,000 miles, another has 89,000 miles, and the other has 85,000 miles. they are all great vans, very reliable, huge, the 4.0L have alot of power. We love these vans.
Hi! I was looking in the Ranger forum for information on my daughter's truck and saw a link in someone's sig that lead me here. I own a 95' Aerostar XLT that I have had for about 6 years now. I drive it back and forth to work everyday and on short trips here and there. Good reliable vehicle, though I wish it got better gas mileage. Glad that I found this place because I am one that does all of my own repairs. Just in the short time that I have been browsing around, I have found several helpful posts that deal with problems that I am having with my Aerostar. Hope to learn as much as I can about this jewel so my wife will think I am a master mechanic. lol

I currently am driving my 3rd Aerostar and think it is one of the best vehicles I have ever owned in my 50 years on this planet, I am sorry Ford stopped making them!
