"The value of the 2002 Ford Winstar LX is very high as it has been paid off for some time and enjoyed these past 12 years. The vehicle is coming to the end of its useful life of carrying my family around and now that its poor electrical system is giving out. We've enjoyed the overall reliability of the vehicle from Okinawa, to Kansas, to Germany and now Florida. The biggest issues have been with its electrical system or lack of quality electrical system. The windows have been repaired under warranty and a couple times since and no longer work. The lights inside go on and off by themselves when the doors are open. The electrical connectors to the rear defrosters fell off by themselves a long time ago. The vehicle lets in exterior noise in when on the highway. A noisier than usual ride but bearable. We've replace alot of the major components on the vehicle from 70K to 110K. With it getting older and Ford finding it harder to come by parts I can't foresee putting in many more repairs at the cost of it. I will probably keep it as long as I can to haul construction material or other cargo uses as it does have allot of space especially when the seats are removed. The trade in value is not worth the money they would give for it compared to having it around for the use of its large cargo capability."

"Bought it used, use it 6 days a week, keep it tuned and oil fresh. Minor, normal repairs, etc. Drove it over 360ooo miles myself and love driving it. I rely on it, its got some rust, minor scrapes, etc. Keeps going. Very dependable, planning on over 500,ooo miles."

"We bought this van in 2003 brand new and it's been a disappointment ever since. It's been recalled too many times to count. The sliding doors get stuck all the time. The tires can't maintain even pressure The door locks don't work right. Just a huge disappointment"

"We have been FORD and Mercury owners since 1972 and this van has been a great vehicle. I only wish FORD was still making the mini-vans. Other manufacturers are making them and I see a lot of them on the highways. I don't understand why Ford quit making them. They certainly sold a lot of them over the years and many are still on the road. I don't want the others. This is a great vehicle and I have no reservations about selling it to a new owner. I have the Family Entertainment Center and it is great for families traveling. I have had good mileage and service from the vehicle."
