Bought this after owning/driving Chevy Venture and Dodge Caravan. This was hands down a better van. Bigger, more power, better ride than the competition. Gas mileage less on the larger 3.8L engine, but significant power and better towing ability makes that negligible at 25mpg hi-way vs 28+ on the others with a small trailer. Loved it from day one and it still drives like new, turning 109,000 this week. Maintenance is easier on Windstar-easier oil/filter changes. Cabin air filter for allergy sufferers is good idea. Overall I would say 100% better than Venture and 50% better than Chrysler products. Looked at Honda, Hyundai before buying this. We have never regretted it a second!
Full adjustment ranges in pedals, power seat, lumbar areas. Seat configurations add room, can be varied to suit needs. Power, gas mileage, ride are super. Video system with rear user controls and dual usage is wonderful! Kids play video games with headphones and we CD listen through the speakers. Peace!
Easier access to spark plugs for maintenance would be awesome.
