Put it out of it's misery finally. They could've made a competent vehicle to compete, but like so many things Ford (that were not fseries or mustang) it just kind of got ignored until it was useless in the segment.
The minivan market is dying. Minivan slaes overall for all automaker has been in decline for a while. The new Crossover market is where the action is. The new Edge is a vehicle that is so versaltile an Fords next hot sellar.
I'd like to see one of those crossover vehicles with sliding doors. That arrangement comes in real handy in garages, and tight parking lots (you know..the ones with the parking spaces labeled 'compact' that have a land yacht parked next to you).

Good idea to get rid of it and get to making the crossover "stuff"
