Great Drive Short Life — My Ford Windstar had great performance, since it had a 3.8 engine and a new plentium, it ran like a dream. It was a good winter beater because it drove through snow drifts with no problems. i paid 250 for it and drove it a whole winter. the transmission pump starting pushing away from the manifold so i had to junk it.

$3100 — This Mini Van drives superbly. The front end feels more sturdy, safe, secure, than most other mini vans of it's class. Windstar SE's carry good resale values, low maintenance, easily accessible, reasonably priced parts (should the need arise) Some front end parts just changed, very high safety Quadruple 5-Star ratings (US), multiple passenger and vehicle safety features, is family oriented in it's design(wide body) and features, adjustable seats to accomodate family travelling, carrying, packing needs, rear climate/media controls prevents driver distraction if rear passengers need adjustments,front running lights compliment the mirror turn signal illuminating ground level in turning, adequate cargo space, wide dash and cab leg room. Overall it's a wonderful family vehicle that's still fun and sporty.

No Complains — This was one really nice van, inside and out. Sport version so it had the sport wheels, fog lights and a spoiler. Inside there was a vcr with a screen so the kids could watch movies, they really enjoyed that.

Comfortable Ride For Short Or Long Trips. — This is a great car for long rides and families. I have driven it to work daily. it handles well, has a great sound system and AC, it's quiet, and all the seats are adjustable for ample leg room. I especially love the power driver seat, lumbar support, and foot pedals.

My Windstar — I like the v-6, has good acceleration. Bit of a gas hog, though. Good for families with several kids.

Comfortable Ride — This car is great for long trips. It allows for ample leg room and cargo space. the AC can be adjusted by rear passengers. I haven't had any handling problems and very little maintenance issues. My wife loves this car!

Pros

Roomy

Cons

Acceleration

Good For The Money — Roomy, flexible and comfortable. Has seen many uses - hauling family, helped with moving, work/daily driver. Has Mitsibushi engine that dogs a little on acceleration, but crusing speed is just fine. Has bells and whistles like a CD/tape player and adjustable pedals.

Pros

Lots of space and very comfortable. It has everything that you could want in a minivan.

Cons

Average gas mileage around town and in traffic, but nothing exceptional.

My 2002 Ford Windstar Lx — This van seats 7 comfortably. The ride is great, and doesn't have that van or truck feel. It has all of the options that you would want in a minivan, and lots of storage. Taking long trips with the family was great.

My 2002 Ford Windstar Lx — The van is nice looking and rides comfortably. We had the van in the shop this past August for multiple recalls that needed to be done. Ford took care of everything wonderfully. Gas mileage is ok, nothing exceptional. Obviously gets much better mileage on the highway than it does in stop and go around town traffic.
