2000 Ford Windstar LX 3dr Minivan
Generally a good vehicle, however there have been nagging issues. There was an issue with the steering column (fluid leak), the cruise control went out a 80K miles. It is a bit of a gas pig (17.5 town/21 hwy), now that gas is over $2.00/gal it is the last of the three I own to be used. The ability to switch climate control to rear is a nice feature. Used to tow a large pop-up camper- performed well. Lots of power, though could have more low end torque. Transmission tends to be a little clunky.
Room and comfort. Nice styling for a van. Great for a hauling kids and all their stuff.
Fit and finish. Spent more money on repairs for the first 100K miles than other vehicles I have owned (e.g. Ford Taurus Wagon, and Chevy Prizm), all on nagging issues, nothing big yet.
