1999 Ford Windstar SEL 4dr Minivan

Review

Purchased new in 4/99 and in the three years I have owned it, the van have been in the dealership four times for power doors that would not close all the way shut. The driver's door handle internals broke and at 29.5K miles, the transmission failed and had to be rebuilt. Gas mileage is poor, it was advertised to be 19 city 23 highway but in reality is closer to 15 city 20 highway and that is not with a full load. Handling and drivability is on par with the best. Also, there is too much wind and road noise that enters the cabin. Won't buy a Ford again.

Best Features

Power seats, on board computer, keyless entry (works as far as 250ft.), handling only if equipped with Sport Package.

Worst Features

Reliability of major components. Need to improve ingress/egress for third row seats when the 2nd row Captain chairs are occupied. Better gas mileage and a magic third row seat would be helpful.
