Two lemons to make sour lemonade

2000 Ford Windstar SEL 4dr Minivan
The Windstar SEL was well equipped and it offered some means of comfort and style. The exterior looks very appealing, stylish and a real head turn kind of vehicle. Truly an amazing color and great color coordination plum and gray in color. Adequate power for a minivan and very responsive. But the transmission stinks! I went through two Windstars, both gave me transmission problems. The first Windstar was an SE version and it was rather roomy, as a matter of fact the 1995 SE was roomier than the 2000 SEL though it was an army green and gray I got used to it. The 95' SE was a joke as far as handling and power. Since the Windstar had such a great safety rating I bough another big mistake.
The sliding power doors I like, the video player between the front seats were cool. The soft plush leather seats are comfortable. The ride is second to none on the 2000 SEL. I love the info display.
