2001 Ford Windstar Limited 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
Great utility and a little luxury go a long way - we have had no issues mechanically with the van. Only minor electrical problems (all under warranty) with the onboard VCR. We have 3 young kids - the remote sliding doors are a godsend. Easy to get in and out of - easy to load up and reasonable comfort and mileage. Great sound system and climate controls. Has stood up quite well for the abuse it has been given. Traction control works great on snowy days - very safe feeling dependable car. We leased it and elected to buy.
VCR - best $1,000 I ever spent. Heated seats. Seat and mirror memory function. Stereo. Climate control warms up fast and cools quickly. Traction control works great in snow.
Seats in front can be a bit uncomfortable for me on long trips (I like more side support) .
