Good vehicle that has a few problems.

2001 Ford Windstar LX 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
Comfortable, flexible van that serves us very well. We enjoy the mini van experience, but have been dissapointed with some major repair issues. Many brake problems and 2 failures, transmission was replaced at 144000 km, intake gaskets need to be replaced every 90000 km at about $700 per time. No other troubles aside from usual maintenance. The van is great for trips, you just never seem to run out of storage space. Towing my little utility trailer is a dream with the Windstar, you can hardly tell it is behind you.
Large flexible storage area and convenient controls.
I'm sure the newer self storing seats would look after the troulbe of removing seats to move large items. Improve brakes and intake gasket reliability. Improve base model handling.
