  • Well lets state the obvious. One is ten years old, the other is three. I would go for the one that is 3 years old once you have it inspected by a mechanic and nothing is wrong with it. Something that is ten years old will only be needing more upkeep.

  • REMEMBER old is not bad, thank you for the feed back. I don't want to choose because of age, what is better. I am old too and I keep getting better with age. :) JJ (NOT)

  • Go with the Ford Windstar! NEVER get a Dodge Caravan!! The Windstar my hubby's mom owned was about 10 yrs old and almost never had a problem. She only got rid of it because she wanted something newer. It was great and dependable. My mom had a Dodge Caravan (as well as many other people I know). My mom had to replace the transmission 5 times within 2 years of having it. Everyone I know that has ever had a Dodge Caravan has had a LOT of trouble with the transmission.
