My parents bought this van brand new in 2000, it has performed flawlessly during the past five years (95,000 miles). The van has been in the shop for service maybe 2 times. Once for the ball bearings in the front wheels; the second time to replace the tie rods because they were bent from all the torque the engine puts out. It is just starting to show signs of wear like a little squeak here and there, and shocks getting a little worn. Nothing major; drivetrain is rock solid, tranny isn't quite as tight as it use to be but is can still easily smoke the tires. If I had to depend on a vehicle, it would for sure be the Windstar.
Like the rims, spoiler, beefy V-6, tight steering, lots of room, like the fact that there is no center console between front seats
Isn't the best on gas, seats could be a little more comfortable.
