My parents have 2 fords, a windstar and a contaur. They're not that bad besides the fact that the windstar will stall out with anything less than premium gas and the contaur isn't really a thrill to drive and is relatively small. But I own a bonne so I'm one of those lucky people to have a better car than my parents .
What year windstar? My mom has a 98 gl that has never had anyhing more that 87 octane regular and runs like a charm.
Dang, I missed something good! Fords ain't all bad. I had a 1977 Ford LTD II that was so badass it would burn rubber in reverse. I have had a few excellent fords in my lifetime and have good memories of them.
