I bought this vehicle used. The 5 star safety rating was the big attraction. It has performed well and is very reliable. Had to put 2 new tires on at 40k miles. Previous owner had knocked wheels out of line and never had them realigned. My van doesn't have all the options that some of the Windstars have but that will be less to break in the future. I had one problem with a fuel metering valve that Ford replaced for free. It was covered under a technical service bulletin. I'd like better fuel economy but otherwise really like this vehicle.
5 star safety rating, comfortable seating, strong engine, and awesome heating/ac system.
