My company’s ford 2000 E-250 has traveled around the United States. It has the original motor and transmission with 429,432 miles and is still helping me get the job done all over the USA. It has never broke down or left me stranded. The only problem I have had is when i left the inside lights on and had to recharge the battery. My van has become a conversation piece with my cowokers and close friends. Now whn people come to me and ask what type of vehicle to buy…I tell them FORD, becaue the proof is sitting in my driveway!
