2000 Ford Windstar LX V6 from North America
Really, it's been a lemon
Left us stranded on side of road at 88000 miles. Paid $2000 for a new transmission.
Numerous problems with engine light, emission problems, ball joints.
Constantly replacing brakes and pads.
One problem after another. The ride is smooth but is not worth the hassle of repairs.
It would've been worth it to pay the extra for a Honda or Toyota van in the beginning.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I'd go with the Honda. One of my old "buddies" when I was younger stole (yes STOLE) an '01 Odyssey van and drove it for about a week.. I was AMAZED at the abuse the thing took (as well as the fact that he never got pulled over or caught in it LOL).. Hey I feel for the owner (s) (they did recover their van but still) but what he did, it was the ultimate test of build quality & durability I've seen. Jus a word of advice, DON'T leave your spare key in the glovebox!! Especially in a High-Crime area.. I don't know who's more of a knucklehead, my former friend or the van's owners!

I had a 2003 Ford Windstar, and soon after buying it, I felt that I should've gone with Toyota or Honda as well.
