Bought it little over 4 years ago with 108k miles. Now has 139k. Prior owner kept it up very well. But now we noticed that it was in a wreck since clear coat is peeling and overspray found on pass door weatherstrip. We had no problems with the transmission or prior owner had it replaced. Check engine light came on back in '07 and we bought manifold gasket and bolts and we replaced all in our garage for $80 otherwise dealer wanted $400. Last week we replaced rack and pinion due to noise from turning and paid $650 to have it repalced along with fuel filter, coolant and trany fluid flush. We also replaced all four tires last summer for $250. Will keep our Windstar for another 3 yrs or so.
Room. Good deal to buy back in 7-04 with only 108k miles for $4400. It has the back up sensors, heated side mirrors, Left side door, clean, Gets 22 miles on the highway, and paid cash for it and did not have to replace tranny or engine.
Engine noise, and fuel economy. But Ford killed it anyway. Would consider 2003 Mercury Villager instead..
