Had many Fords before but.....
By Party of 4 on
2001 Ford Windstar SEL 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
We bought it used with 71K miles. As we drove off the lot the engine light came on. The dealership we bought it from fixed it-twice. Little things such as sliding door sticking/not unlocking, passenger door lock sticking, & the rubber between the doors come off. Now we took a vacation 700 mies away & on the way back the tranny at 82k miles literally dropped when driving up major mountains in Southern OR. I've always been happy with Ford, but not too happy on this one. Will but will buy again
Roomy (6'3 hubby & 6'1 14yr old). Seats are comfy & wide range of adjustablilty. Auto sliding doors, removable seats, 4 captain seats. A lot considering I said I'd never drive a mini-van becauase I was too young & fun!
Fix tranny and give more attention to the little things that break & get a good reputation again!!
