1999 Ford Windstar LX 3dr Minivan

Review

"Buy American" I thought proudly. Two transmissions later I'm replacing my Windstar with a Camry or an Accord. I can't afford to be patriotic if that means supporting unreliable vehicles like this Windstar. Dealers charge over $100 to diagnose mysterious trouble lights on the dash...three times already. The AC and power steering systems leak. Ford has a problem with their automatic transmissions. The service manager at the dealership advised me that transmissions were a known Ford weakness. Ford's customer service was useless.

Favorite Features

second sliding door.

Suggested Improvements

tranmission and having the dealers charge for diagnosing dash trouble lights is outrageous. The car tells me there is a problem, I take it to the dealer and they tell me it will cost $129 to hook it up to a machine to identify the problem. That's maddening.
