Yes we had a FAstro van AWD. It was well used when we bought it and used it for a couple years. Unfortunately it got rolled down the grass median south of Charlotte just in SC. Insurance wrote it off and did not give us enough, in my opinion, for the great shape it was in being AWD with brand new rubber and one month old custom stainless exhaust installed. They just looked at the year and mileage pretty much. We liked it, unlike our Aerostar which we did not like.

I owned one brand new I bought from a high school friend who runs a local Ford dealership. Like the commenter OldRoad says, they were garbage! Rusted floor panel through the side on both sides, shifter cable rusted through the seals and would no longer shift and Ford wanted a fortune for a new one, that would have done the same thing! I repaired my shifter cable with hose clamps and silicone sealant! The dealer finally relented and repaired the rusted through panel/floor seam after I complained to the friend/owner however it rusted further down, where they did not repair it all the way down the seam, in just a few months! It lasted long enough to trade away this junk and buy a Pontiac Montana as we still needed an family sized minivan. The Montana wasn't perfect but was much better than the Aerostar! Oh and I have not bought a Ford since and I grew up with family that always bought Fords! My Honda's, Subaru's and especially Toyota's have been far better and less expensive to own since I started buying them instead.
