I have 3 and love every one
3dr Minivan
Have (2) 96 60000 and 74000 miles (1) 98 73000 miles. Minor problems, nothing major. Have Ford and aftermarket extended warranty. All problems taken care of for just the deductible.(if you don't include cost of extended warranty, which is cheaper than a new transmission or head gasket job). Well maintained and NOT ABUSED.Well pleased so far.

Should I lease or buy a 1996 Ford Windstar Cargo?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
