2001 Ford Windstar LX 3dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
Rear fan for A/C and heating goes out every year for $100 a pop. OUCH! After 100,000 miles transmission, shelled out. $2800. Now A/C compressor locked up. $750. Very high maintenance on this van. Also has trouble with dust on auto door locks. Suspect poor engineering and will now look into higher quality vehicles. Good-by Ford, hope you do well with one less customer.
Liked extra features, and style of the vehicle. Interior was very convinant. Removable back seats were nice, and enjoyed having dual sliding doors. Interior very nice!
Dust control down gravel roads. Brushless DC motor for rear climate controls. Better engineered drive train. A/C compressor was understandable, but transmission going out after 100k is silly. Other vans performed much better why can't you?
