Had pretty good luck so far.

1996 Ford Windstar LX 3dr Minivan


Bought van in '99 with 33,000 miles. Transmission rebuilt right after purchase under warranty. (Thank you, Ford!) Bought extended warranty, never used it. Items replaced so far - tie rod ends, power steering pump. We tow snowmobiles with it, no problems pulling. Check engine light comes on occasionally, usually after long trips. Very comfortable ride, no major engine problems to date w/ 120,000 miles. Only paid $13k for van in '99, and it has served us well. Not a Honda by any means, but we didn't pay Honda prices. If I get another year or 2 out of this van I think I will have got more than my money's worth.

Best Features

Seating is excellent, quiet comfortable ride. CD stereo system has better sound than my wifes $30K Honda, Tons of room, we removed the back seat and use it like a pickup.

Worst Features

Better quality.
