2000 Ford Windstar Limited 4dr Minivan


Review

I've had this van for over 4 years now (42K miles). Just a few problems, but nothing I would consider major. During third year sliding doors would open on their own or would not stay closed - found out that was due to needing a new battery. After replacing, no more problems with doors. At 36K, power windows went out (about 3 months between them, both front). Just after the warranty! Mechanically, has been sound. Love it. Love the entertainment center and the reverse sensing, both are must haves. Dual A/C is fabulous and still ice cold after being run every day for over 4 years in the hot Hawaiian sun. Split sound system is a godsend as well; kids have video in back, we have music up front.


Best Features

REVERSE SENSING! Entertainment center. Dual A/C. Storage compartments for anything and everything you can think of. Dual sliding doors are fabulous when hands are full or you just want to click them open early to let them steamy hot air out before you get in.


Worst Features

Ford needs to work on better electrical systems. Leather seating and the carpets are nice, BUT the plastic molding inside is CHEESEY!

Review

Has been extremely nice on long trips. Very comfortable interior. I have two of four sons that are 6 ft 5 in and 6 ft 7 in and they could lean back in the captains chairs and sleep. Only problem was the transmission in which the dealer promptly fixed. Has been a very good reliable vehicle.


Best Features

Reclining captains chairs. The computer read-out of all kinds of stats especially the "change oil" stat. The dual sliding doors.


Worst Features

Ford could give a longer warranty. It would be nice if the rear cargo doors glass could open up to access the back instead of the whole door. Kind-of like the Explorers.

Review

First of all, it has that noisy engine. Tapping of the valves. It will keep on running though. Very reliable even with the sounds. I have nearly 66000 on it now and it has no rattles inside. The kids are very comfortable in it. The sliding doors on both sides make it so nice for entering and exiting. It has great pick up as well as a good braking system.


Best Features

The body style is classy looking. The interior is very comfortable.


Worst Features

More leg room for the back seat area.

Review

This vehicle has been nothing but problems from the word go. At 25000 miles we were putting on new tie rods, then again by 50000. Which is right after we replaced the transmission at 45000. Wiper motor brakes at 60000 along with passenger door locks, power sterring making terrible griding noise and diver side power seat has been repaired 3 times. Spark plugs have been replaced twice. We have 65000 on this car and I'm affraid to let my wife take it out of town. Thank God for the extended warranty!


Best Features

We like the enterior room and the comfort of the drive.


Worst Features

The only way this car could be improved would be to be built by another manufacturer that actually places quality working parts into their cars. We will not ever by another Ford product!

Review

Great family car. It has all the features we looked for, without spending too much. Very convenient for us that have two babies using car seats.


Best Features

Two sliding back doors allow easy and fast access to back seats, regardless how old or young is the passenger.


Worst Features

Driving experience. Can be smoother.
