A dangerous vehicle to own.
By Former Ford Man on
1999 Ford Windstar SE 4dr Minivan
This van started off serving us well but quickly became a nightmare. At 75k mi. the transmission failed requiring rebuild. At 85k mi, the speed control deactivation switch caused a fire at the ABS module while the vehicle was off and parked in the driveway. Along the way, electrical system issues caused the power windows, power door locks and horn to stop working. This vehicle has major electrical system flaws causing a dangerous safety issue!
Well designed interior, lots of room.
Transmission appears to be a known problem and the electrical system problems are common. The ABS / Cruise control system fire makes this a dangerous vehicle to own
