Review

I've had many problems which include:
Transmission problems, Head Gasket
Replacement and continual Oxygen
Sensor replacements ever since the
Head Gaskets were replaced, Electrical
Problems including windshield washer
fluid not working, lights staying on
and the related door ajar sounds it
likes to make, etc... It has had
brake problems and a surging engine
problem. The sliding door fell off
when it was opened all the way. Of
course when it fell of it scratched
the paint on the back quarter of the
van. The most reliable component has
been the check engine light which
usually came back on within a week of
having it out of my local Ford
garage.


Best Features

Ability to lock doors from the back. Good safety ratings. Rides well.


Worst Features

Improve quality and dependability. Do not think that you can establish a loyal customer base with vehicles that have plenty of bells and whistles but that are not reliable over the long run.

Review

Traded an Astro van for my 95
Windstar. Windstar is better by far.
More room, better comfort, handling and
workmanship than Astro. No problems to
date other than routine maint.
Excellent for long trips. Pulls our
camper with no problems.


Best Features

Passing gear.


Worst Features

None

Review

Purchased this used and have gotten
110,000 miles from it. Comfortable
ride, roomy - adding a fourth door on
newer models definitely an
improvement. Electrical problems,
mostly with interior lights, warning
bells, passenger window, have been
numerous. I am now in need of a head
gasket (last one was installed 2 years
ago). Transmission still good. A/C
and heating have been powerful,
reliable.


Best Features

comfortable ride; roomy; reliable transportation (except for head gaskets and usual, expected repairs/maintenance). Sound system (radio, cassette player, speakers) strong and reliable; no problems in a 9- year old car.


Worst Features

Rear bench very heavy - difficult to remove/replace. FIX ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS - they are incredibly irritating (bells that won't stop, interior and warning lights that won't go off even when there is no problem); passenger window has been repaired several times - no excuse for that.

Review

This a good car for children and for
the dealer. I have 120k on the car
and have had all the major problems:
transmissions @ 40k and 110k, head
gasket leak @ 60k, warning lights, abs
problems, etc. Fortunately, the car
has never been found on the road
dead. Also own 2000 model no problems
yet @ 30k
