1999 Ford Windstar LX 3dr Minivan
Review
Bought new for $24,000 all up in May '99. Now has 54,000 miles. 4-door LX with dual a/c. Ended up at the dealer a lot that first year: cruise control (3 trips to fix), liftgate piston failed, battery died, cabin air vent mechanism came loose and stopped the HVAC, taillight came loose, rear wiper motor died, odometer is 4 percent off. Since that teething period it's needed a manifold repair ($1100) and new front brake rotors. Cabin lights strobe, passenger side front seat is jammed in its track, upholstery wearing out quickly. Get a GOOD, extended warranty. Pay a lot for foreign and avoid the repair shop or pay less for domestic, then pay the repair shop. Six of one...
Favorite Features
Separate A/C controls; three children love that. Good power, easy driving, cold a/c, rear wiper, cupholders, cheap oil changes, gets 17 mpg around town, nice loading and lifting heights.
Suggested Improvements
Engine should be quieter. Once a vehicle model has a reputation, it doesn't make sense for the manufacturer to spend a lot improving it. Windstar rep is so bad it got a new name. Freestar will be garbage too. Ford, start over.
