Review

Head gasket and transmission both went. What else is there to say but don't buy one. I feel lucky, I got 84K on it before the tranny went.

Review

I LOVE my Van I hear all these bad storys and I wonder what do you do with your vans! This is not the Indy 500 for Windstars. I have never had a problem. It has only broke down once when my husband was driving it. So don't let guys drive a mom car. Would buy another one when this one dies.


Favorite Features

I love the dual sliding doors


Suggested Improvements

Slam it down with some 20's

1999 Ford Windstar LX 3dr Minivan


Review

I bought the car offlease with 35K. I started having problems last year with the electrical system. I just replaced the intake manifold gasket including the bolts, the mass airflow sensor and just about every other sensor to finally get the check engine light off. The light is still off, but is not allright. It continues to have new electrical odd problems that cannot be easily diagnosed or fixed. Do not buy Windstars!


Favorite Features

Enough room for the whole family. Good for traveling when it runs.


Suggested Improvements

Scrap Yard

Review

Just got rid of this thing. I bought it certified used with an extended warranty, with 47,000 miles on it. It now has 84,000 miles on it, and I had 4 transmissions put in it. CD player broke, all of the sensors started going out. Glad to get rid of it. Don't bother with Vista Ford of Oxnard if you have a problem. Go up the road a few miles to Mel Clayton in Santa Barbara.


Favorite Features

Rear AC


Suggested Improvements

Too much to list. Build a tranny that doesn't burn out in 8,000 miles.
