2000 Ford Windstar SEL 4dr Minivan

Review

I bought this car from a dealership with 23K miles on it 3.5 yrs. ago. We rolled our '96 Windstar (which had problems) after hitting a patch of MN ice and T-boning another van. Because we walked away with only a few bruises and scratches (living to tell about the 5-star crash rating), I bought another Windstar. Stupid me. At 97K the O/D light & the Check Transmission lights came on. It seemed to be OK if the car was cold, but after about 45 miles it would come on. It also started skipping gears. After three trips to the mechanic (whom we have used for years) he says there is a tranny leak and we need a new one ($2K). He first thought it was a stuck solenoid. NOT! No more Fords for us! EVER!

Favorite Features

Electrically adjustable leather seats, heated mirrors, auto dim rear-view mirrors, rear headphone jacks and audio controls. Dual rear power cargo doors that can be opened remotely.

Suggested Improvements

Solve the stupid tranny problems. Enough is enough. Planned obsolescence has gone too far here! Improve the gas mileage. Improve captain's chair cup holders... very easily broken.
