By Andrew Greenhill on
1999 Ford Windstar LX 3dr Minivan
In the very beginning of
owning the Windstar,I was very happy.
My only complaints were that the
interior was less roomy and not as nice
as the Caravan and the transmission
seemed to shift "hard". Roughly at 5K
the interior lights started
intermittently flashing. I brought it
in for warrantee work but they were
never able to solve the problem. With
only 2500 miles left on warrantee the
transmission blew. The Windstar was in
the dealship for over a week. Would I
buy another Windstar? Probably not due
to many of the problems I've seen
(including 4 recalls)plus the fact
the gas mileage is quite poor.
High safety rating makes you feel
better when you have small children,
liked the exterior looks over other
Let's fix those transmission problems
and make the interior slightly larger.
