Reliability is Horrible

2000 Ford Windstar SEL 4dr Minivan
We have a 2000 Windstar which we bought new. The transmission has gone out twice (60K and $70K miles). Everything breaks on it. The paint is peeling around all doors and on the roof, the electrical doors locks have broken, and the rear window water spray broke after about 3 months of ownership. My sister had a 2000 as well and the transmission went out on hers also. This is just the beginning of the problems.
Dual sliding doors (though they short out on occasion) were a very new feature at the time. Pretty good power on acceleration if needed.
Transmissions need rebuilding. The paint quality is horrible.
