2002 Ford Windstar LX Standard 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
Purchased this vehicle used nearly 2 years ago, with 50,000 miles. No problems at all with this van. 20mpg, powerful engine and tows our folding camper with ease. The kids love it and we all appreciate how comfortable it is to drive, for short or long trips. Test drove the Sienna, but when we asked about its ability to tow our large folding camper, the toyota salesmen told us not to buy the Sienna. We have considered buying a new SUV, but we cant justify it. This van does everything well and costs nothing to own. Best value out there and solidly built. Way to go Ford!
Ride quality, dependability, towing performance, powerful engine and relaxing to drive. Scheduled service is so inexpensive compared to foreign makes. American made!
Better MPG. It is powerful, but 20MPG as an average is just ok.
