1999 Ford Windstar 3dr Minivan
We bought this baby after it had been on the dealer's lot for a long time and got a good deal on it. We had to replace the tranny at around 100K but otherwise it's been a total workhorse. it's got 150K on it and going strong. It's a bit banged up so we don't worry about throwing just about anything in it. A mechanic told us the 3.0 V6 is the best engine option and it's been good getting around 20 mpg. We hope to get another couple of years out of it.
Rugged reliability and ability to easily remove the rear seats.
Perhaps a better tranny, I guess. They all seem to go around 100K.
