I had a 1995 Windstar that I bought new, and was generally happy with. I put plugs, wires, a few other things in at about 145,000 miles, and at 150,000 decided to drive it to 200,000. I totaled it at 168,000 and was really mad at myself.
I bought a used 2000 Windstar. What a piece of garbage! It is a totally cheapened version of the 1995, and I could go to great lengths to tell you why I say this (little things like our bike rack, which worked fine on the 95 caving in the rear hatch, cigarette lighter falling out of the dash, etc. Two transmissions at about 110,000 miles. Now the speedometer and ABS.)
I will never, ever buy their junk again!!
