Been good to us
By Dadto2 on
1999 Ford Windstar SEL 4dr Minivan
Bought our SEL just before our first
was born. Now 4.5 yrs later we have 2
and the Windstar is still getting it
done. Great family & Home Depot hauler.
The leather has held up well and the
carpet is very tough. We shopped for a
new van/suv 2 weeks ago and didn't find
anything that motivated us to replace
the Windstar. I change the coolant,
trans & PS fluids every year. Other
than routine maint it has needed a MAF
sensor, battery & tie rod ends. Our
dealer returned it in 1/2 day each
time. No cost w/ext warr. We ALWAYS buy
them. Any late model vehicle can break
the bank without one. The power doors
are a great with an armful of kids,
Styling, power doors, power front
seats, 4 captains chairs, built-
in "systems" check.
Better mileage. SERVICE TIPS: Change
the coolant, trans & power steeing
fluid yearly to avoid big $$$ repairs.
If your power doors "act up" replace
the van's battery.
