2001 Ford Windstar LX 3dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

Review

In 4 years that we have had this car, we have in the past year put in over $3500. This includes $1200 for intake manifold problem where the oil leaked. Funny I saw the same problem noted also on this website review. Then a few months later we ended up replacing the engine at a cost of $2500 with Ford pitching in the other half. Now we are having to replace the ABS computer brain that controls the hydraulics for the brakes. That is $1200. The dealership has offered to work with us on this repair as well as offering us an option on purchasing another car with them like a Freestar. I am VERY DISAPPOINTED that this car would have had $5000 in repairs while under 85k miles.

Favorite Features

Outside of the major problems, it has been a good car for the family.

Suggested Improvements

Build a better car that lasts at least 100k miles without major expensive repairs! Sure we could have purchased an extended warranty but I just find this to be unacceptable.
