Question: Both have 6 cylinders. Both are automatic. However, the Windstar has 4speed w/OD. The Explorer has 4 wheel drive rear and the Explorer has 2 wheel drive front. These are the areas of my concern. Which is better as a family commuter vehicle? The other minor concern is the 98 Explorer racked up 125K miles and the 99 Windstar only 105K. The 20K miles difference in one year on a car that is 13 years old may be a factor as well. Does anyone have any advice for me please? Thanks very much. Thank you to all who have answered so far. Thanks for the quick response. Funny thing is the Ford Explorer is the first one I liked then I started comparing the others. I was worried about the 125K miles, but am happy that you all are confident with Ford's reliability. What do you know about the Jeep Grand Cherokee? All things being equal except the Jeep has 105K miles. That's the other one I just found. Thanks!
