Not bad for a Ford!

1998 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan
It's been a great vacation vehicle for us. There are a lot of storage cubbies to put a variety of camping items like flashlights, utensils, and other sundries. There's a lot of space inside; plenty for our family of four on a 2-3 day trip. It seats seven when we're visiting friends and grandparents, aunts and uncles so that we can travel to our destination in one vehicle. We have not had to repair anything in the two years we have owned it. We're the second owner and we bought it from friends that did not have problems with it either.
Captains chairs keep the kids separate so that you don't hear, "She's touching me!" Cargo space and net are great. Lots of legroom and space for extras. Rear heat and air, and separate ear phones for the radio save me from hearing, "Mom! Turn on the....!" Removable seats are great (but heavy).
Would love the fold-down into the floor seat option, and CD player of course. Work on the transmission, they're known for trannie probs! We're only just now getting to that point; the van is almost 7 years old and the transmission is just beginning to have problems. Lumbar support options would be great!
