Well, I wouldn't call a Raider SPACIOUS. They are about the same interior space as a Cherokee 2-door, with a bit less cargo space in back.

I see... These 3 Raiders are about an hour or less away, so I'm going to go have a look if I can contact the owner and see what he'd like to do about them. Are there any differences in durability between the 3 years, especially with the transmissions and such?

We need a spacious daily driver that can haul the entire medicinal supply, if necessary, of a vaccination clinic.

This would be a good run around SUV for you but not for your Family It is a very short suv.

My dad used to drive the Aerostar to work and back, and he also used it to carry furniture from furniture stores. We own and run this:

The van was used to carry supplies to and from the first few original locations, but now with the van'* morning sickness, impeccable Ford craftfailsmanship, and second shot rear end bearing, it may be time to move on.

Maybe. More or less, yeah. We have 5 cars for four drivers, so we prefer having a towing/carrying car and 5 sedans or coupes. Currently, it'* 2 Bonnevilles, an Alero, a Sable, and the Aerostar.
