Served me well

1998 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan
Look in any car buying guide and you'll read to stay away from this vehicle. My 3.8 liter Windstar served me well and all I can tell you is that I sold it a few months ago with 187,000 miles and I never had a problem with it. I religiously changed the oil and rotated the tires. It has tons of interior room, decent gas mileage and a pretty smooth ride. I hauled 1,100 lbs of bagged rocks behind the third row seat, numerous 4 x 8 sheets of drywall and other things and it kept going strong. Of course, I washed it once a week, waxed it twice a year and kept up the vehicle very, very well. I sold mine a few months ago for $2,000 and probably could have gotten more.
Storage, decent mileage
The vehicle corners and has a turning radius similar to an aircraft carrier! Pathetic. Also, it drives like an overweight Sumo wrestler with a steering wheel.
