I've had 3 Fords in 10 years and each
vehicle was worse, culminating in the
Windstar. Car "chimes" for no reason
due to an electrical "gremlin". It
also stranded my wife at work refusing
to start. Dealer shrugged his
shoulders. Transmission #2 at 20,000
miles and the thing still lurches and
groans. The front bumper began to
deteriorate as a crack developed and
began spreading. Dealer says I hit
something, but vehicle has NEVER come
in contact with anything. Rear bumper
has crack too. (I must have backed
into a water buffalo without
noticing!) The dealer has been
worthless only surpassed by Ford
My 1998 Nissan Maxima which has a
higher resale value right now than my
2000 Windstar? Oh, and it works great!
Drop vehicle into a car crusher and
hit the button!
