With a new child we went looking for a
safe and affordable minivan we
could 'grow' into. However 53,000 miles
down the road I am ready to drop my
Windstar like a bad habit. First
problem was at 43,000 miles - a new
transmission. Ford offered to 'help'
with 80% of the costs, still that's
money you shouldn't have to shell out
after 43,000 miles. Then 1,000 miles
later the Rack and Pinion steering went
out. $700 more dollars. Just yesterday
the air intake system went. I would not
buy a Ford again unless they offered a
10 year/100,000 bumper to bumper - on
everything from light bulbs to engine
block. Be afraid - be very afraid.
Sometimes when I go out to start it -
I suggest they call Honda on the phone
and ask them how to make a car.
