Well we have had 2 1998 Windstars and both have been real good. The first was the base 3.0 with power group. We had it for 1 year and put 89,000 miles on it because we travel from Maine to Boston 2 times a moth. It was a good van on the interstate. The 2 was a 98 Northwoods full power and was a real good van to have too. Had no problems with it at all we have had 99 00 and 01 Windstars and all have been good to have.
Power, power seats, room (we are big), gas mileage 22 in town, 31 highway.
