Best pre-owned value for your money

2000 Ford Windstar SEL 4dr Minivan
We bought the vehicle pre-owned with 80K miles on it. Primarily we wanted something bigger than the Honda CR-V that we traded for this van. My family was used to the Expedition we had before that so from the CR-V's perspective, this was a pleasant upgrade. Also this model had leather, wood, etc. and automatic rear doors that help us a lot with a 5 year old and a 7 year old. Car has been nothing but comfort for us. The only work ever done on it other than routine oil/tires and consumables has been a dead battery (expected at this age) for $50, a top engine seal vacuum leak @ $140.00 and thats it! Exceptional for a FORD vehicle.
Rides very swift and requires getting used to. Love the 4 captains chairs and all electronics. We love the trip computer, dual A/C and split entertainment system. Both rear doors can be opened using remote! Bravo.
Power liftgate will be awesome. The liftgate is very heavy even for a man like me (5ft-8, 190lbs).
