ReviewGet an extended warranty because it's worth it. There were a few minor repairs and the transmission had to be rebuilt at 72K miles when the warranty ran out at 75K. At 94K there are some electrical problems popping up, but nothing too bad. The speedometer has been replaced once and it's getting a bit shaky again. The right windows stopped operating, but my dad simply took the motors apart and put it back together and it just started working again. The door light started coming on even though all doors were closed. I cleaned the contacts where the doors close and now the light only stays on for an extra 5 seconds every now and then. Despite its problems, I like the van.
Best FeaturesHas better visibility than most cars. Comfy and plenty of room.
Worst FeaturesBetter gas mileage. I tried looking for a car to trade in for but no luck. Hope the newer Windstars have fewer electrical problems.
