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


Review

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.


Best Features

VCR - best $1,000 I ever spent. Heated seats. Seat and mirror memory function. Stereo. Climate control warms up fast and cools quickly. Traction control works great in snow.


Worst Features

Seats in front can be a bit uncomfortable for me on long trips (I like more side support) .

Review

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.


Best Features

Back up warning beeper. CD in dash. Heated seats. VCR system. Storage capacity with thrid seat removed. Easy in and out.


Worst Features

Right rear door remains a problem in that it took so long to get fixed. (3 years) Pillars blocking side sight. No casette player. Easier removal of seats in back. Road noise. Unable to see end of van and therefore difficult to gauge distance from front of van to parking limit.

Review

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.


Best Features

Tight construction. Quiet ride when windows are closed. Feels like a durable, dependable vehicle for our family and looks really great.


Worst Features

Easier accessiblily to CD compartment. Windshield washers don't seem to clean enough area.
