No More Windstars
By Glembi on
1999 Ford Windstar SEL 4dr Minivan
Minivan started off great. At 10,000,
both automatic doors stopped closing.
Got constant engine knock. Lots of
minor things happend but all covered
under warrenty. At 40,000 miles,
things really started to happen. CD
player ate a CD and would not give it
back. $300 to fix. $400 to replace.
Upper manifold gasket went. Another
$500. At 50,000, six seals around the
bolts that attached the lower manifold
to the engine went. Another $500. This
week, the heating system deflector
door went. $300 to get behind the
dash. Another $350 to replace the
part. Never have I owned a car that
had as many problems at less that 60k
Don't know what to say. Fix all stuff
that shouldn't break? Make stuff that
does not break before 100k miles?
