Supervan by Yooper Mom from Iron River, MI on 02/25/2004. Trim: 1997 Ford Aerostar XLT Extended 4WD, Owned 7 years.
Pros: I love my van. I like the AWD, the comfort of 4 captains chairs and the appearance.
Cons: I would gladly buy another Aeorstar, however, Ford is not making them any longer. I do not like the placement of the back seat heat vents. I wish there were more cup holders in the rear seating area.
Overall review: We have over 165,000 miles on our van with very minimal problems. I love my van and do wish we could buy another exactly the same.

Grow on you by A CarPoint Consumer on 01/31/2001. Trim: 1997 Ford Aerostar XLT, Owned 4 years.
Pros: Reliable. For such a funny looking vehicle, it's fun to drive. It grows on you. Some cars have that quality, and most don't. Front seating is excellent, even for those of us with bad backs.
Cons: no longer made.
Overall review: Get one if you can. They really seem to hold up well. Real workhorse.
