As reliable as a family van

I had a ford windstar family van before getting this car and i gotta say its as reliable (or even better) than what i had and its almost from the same year


economical car

has many wear & tear issues, but value for money. would recommend if you get for under 3K. rusting is a problem. avg fuel efficiency.
