There are better minivans

2003 Ford Windstar 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
I inherited this vehicle from my father-in-law, who purchased this as a former "dealer car" in 2003. It's a good people mover, but was dated when new and is even worse now. We have had no major issues, but lots of minor ones. We have had all sorts of problems with electrical sensors going bad, each of which cost several hundred dollars to fix. We had the mysterious flickering interior lights problem (it's a bad door sensor, if you are wondering) a tire pressure light that comes on for no reason, and a very expensive check engine light. I think Ford cut every corner they could think of when building this van and it shows.
3.8L V6 provides good power. Van has room for 7.
There is a reason why the US automakers need a bailout: their cars are not the same quality as the competition and consumers won't put up with it. Make a decent car (or at least stand behind what you make) and maybe people will buy it.
