1996 Ford Windstar Van — This was a nightmare to own. In the two years we had this van, the tranmission had to be replaced twice. After the second time, we traded this lemon in! The van was roomy inside, but not particularly comfortable. Styling was boring inside and out. Handling and ride were less than stellar. Performance was horrible and gas milage was even worse!

Ford Windstar Van — Bought like new condition, low miles. All options, fully loaded. Rides like a cadillac and goes like snot. Was in perfect condition. Had a major problem with it last week I need to figure out. The oil pan blew off when I went to start it! Has anybody ever heard of such a thing??

Had The Room When We Needed It. — A lot of room when you have car seats and booster seats for 3 little ones; and all the gear that goes with them. We could pack all kinds of things in that van...always had plenty of room.
