Never buy a Ford again!
By tominVA on
1999 Ford Windstar LX 3dr Minivan
Bottom line...LEMON! Just had the
Transmission repaired for $1,060 on a 4
yr old vehicle w/ 71,000 miles!
Mechanic said they don't this kind of
failure on cars with 140000 miles!
Spent the holidays driving the 1988
Camry I gave to my Dad when I bought
this van (it has 150000 miles!) Have
expierenced multiple little problems
with the electrical system, doors, and
idler control motor. All of which
dealers say they find no problems.
Have been religious with
maintenance/tune ups expecting this car
would last 7-8 yrs. I'm unloading this
quickly and going back to a Toyota!
With the help of Edmunds I was able to
negotiate an excellent deal on the
original purchase so at least I didn't
get taken on that end.
Ford Motor Co gets a clue and starts
either building a more reliable vehicle
OR admits that some of their stuff was
poorly built and repairs it at no cost
to the consumer!
