Are Ford Windstars good vehicles?

My husband and I need a new vehicle. We re currently looking at a 2000 Ford Windstar. I haven't heard too much about these and was wondering if anyone has owned one, knew someone that owned one, or heard whether or not they are a good overall vehicle. I'm not too big on the color but the last couple days I have been sitting in the back seat where my oldest two sit and it is HELL!!!! Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks ladies

  • Above is right on tranny .. need to put a tranny cooler on to solve the problem. We had to do that to our Taurus too (Ford thing I guess) I really like the Moutaineer .. it is a Mercury and had great seating. They also have a good record for holding up.

  • Don't know about the Ford vans. We have a Town&Country and we love ours.
