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!

Best Features

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.

Worst Features

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!
