Solid Mini-Van
By Ben Whitehead on 04/28/03 00:00 AM (PDT)

Vehicle

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

Review

No problems whatsoever in the time we've owned it. Very strong 3.8 V6, with all the passing power I need. Quiet, comfortable. It's a mini-van, what more do you want?

Bill's Windstar SE Review
By Bill Hughes on 01/21/03 00:00 AM (PST)

Vehicle

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

Review

The Windstar is a very utilitarian vehicle. It has a great safety rating and seems to be a very solidly built vehicle. The motor is quite powerful with the 3.8 V-6, however the transmission/ shifting seems to be a little rough at times. I got the 0% financing for 60 months - that helped close the deal. I am also a Ford man. I don't like most GM vehicles and I don't trust Chrysler/ Dodge reliability. (Caravans used to have a reputation for early transmission failures.)

2001 Windstar Ltd. - WoW
By Kitzyb on 11/02/02 00:00 AM (PST)

Vehicle

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

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.

Junk Burn your money first!

Vehicle

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

Review

Nothing but trouble. Ford bought back my 1996 and traded me for a 2001. This Van is no better and Fords Customer Service is a joke. Dealers can fix problems and are no help in getting Ford to help. Escalating the problem higher in the ford coporation is just a waste of time. They will make will try to convince you that the failed to please only in your case. Make your life simple Stay away from Windstars!

Crappy Transmission as always....
By k1124 on 08/04/02 00:00 AM (PDT)

Vehicle

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

Review

I worked for a company that gave me a free company car every year (20 in all). In 2001 I was laid off and needed a car quickly so I purchsed my company car at 26M. Now at 45M the transmission shutters from 3-4th gear. Every Winstar I ever had (6 in total) had a shuttering transmission. I thought by now they would have fixed it. Other than that it's been reliable.

Solid Performance

Vehicle

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

Review

I like the Windstar's interior and the van is great for our 3 kids. The only down side I have found so far is the van could use a bigger engine. Only has 190 hp.
