Great van - very practical

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Ford Windstar Limited 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

Great utility and a little luxury go a long way - we have had no issues mechanically with the van. Only minor electrical problems (all under warranty) with the onboard VCR. We have 3 young kids - the remote sliding doors are a godsend. Easy to get in and out of - easy to load up and reasonable comfort and mileage. Great sound system and climate controls. Has stood up quite well for the abuse it has been given. Traction control works great on snowy days - very safe feeling dependable car. We leased it and elected to buy.




Three years later

Vehicle: 2001 Ford Windstar Limited 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

Overall this Van performed pretty much as expected. There was a rating ding about the side pannel blocking sight which is my only safety complaint. For a van the vehicle did quite well. However, it took three years to fix the right rear sliding door. Even though the warranty was up the company honored the repair work (labor and parts) because they never were able to fix the thing until this month. (My lease is up next month) Traction control system went bad about thwo months ago and it took $600 dollars and a long time to fix.




2001 windstar ltd. - wow

Vehicle: 2001 Ford Windstar Limited 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

We love this vehicle. It has performed above our expectations. The only problems we have had are minor interior items. One head rest needed upholstery attention and one light switch needed some. My husband fixed the light with his pocket knife while riding as a passenger. Great for long trips with the kids. We have had over 6 - 1000+ mile trips in last 19 months.

What's New for 2001

There are several model/series changes, as well as updates to the exterior, interior and powertrain. Ford says a new transmission has improved shift quality and the 3.8-liter V6 is standard on all Windstars. The base model is now called the Windstar LX three-door. The SE Sport is a new trim level and it includes driving lights, painted bumpers and body-side molding, a rear lift gate spoiler, a second-row bucket/console seat, a roof rack with brushed aluminum crossbars, black rocker cladding, and different wheels and tires.

Given the apparent negative feelings for the Windstar/FreeStar that are common out there, I thought I should add our positive experience for balance....

With my 2001 windstar it has an engine shutter while maintaining a constant speed. When the van is gaining speed or going up a hill or coasting the shutter is gone. When I reach a level spot in the ro...
