Three months after we purchased this
van, the engine blew. Fortunately,
Ford paid for the new engine due to a
recall, but one year later the same
thing happened (head gaskets blew)
causing another $1500 in damage. Six
months later, it appears to be
happening again. For what we've paid
in repairs ( plus the initial cost), we
could have bought a brand new Honda
Odessey or Toyota Sienna. Whenever I
see a Windstar owner in a parking lot,
I love to ask them how many engines
THEY'VE put in. We all appear to be in
the same boat. The transmission is
about ready to blow, too.
A/C is quick to cool.
How about a reliable engine and
transmission? Too much to ask from
