I own a 1999 Windstar SEL which I bought used. The van is fantastic. Very comfy for short and long haul driving. Am getting 22 mpg on the highway which is great, but it drops to 17 city driving. This is a very solid, well built van which I like much better than the 1999 counterparts. It is long wheelbase but very easy to park. The dual a/c is fantastic and ice cold. Just oil change every 6 months along with regular service and it keeps running great. Now approaching 80k and knock on wood, no problems. Highly recommend this wonderful minivan.
Excellent ride and very quiet. Good mpg. Ice cold dual a/c. Tons of room for people and cargo, better than a pickup where all the cargo gets wet if it rains. Very comfy seats for all. Super radio too.
For an American minivan this one is up there with the best.
