We bought a newer van – a Ford Freestar (which is what they called the Windstar models between 2000 and 2007). It seems in pretty clean shape and has minimal rust.
The only thing is that the ‘emission control’ light kept coming on the day after I filled up with gas. I’ve taken it back to the dealership twice to have it looked at.
The first time they reset the sensor and the second they actually changed the sensor. They second time they also fixed the door trim from the driver’s side door. It had fallen off at the end of our street but I had found it on the way home.
