2002 Ford Windstar LX 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
Well I after reading these reviews before I bought the car I thought gee everyone is pretty positive. I bought the car I was happy for about three years great van and I have owned three Caravans before. The Ford was lot more comfortable on the highway and lot more preppy. But whoa! When it hit the fourth year the thing just started to fall apart! I have spent over $ 5000 on repairs in the last year! $2,500 in one month alone. My mechanic says hey its cheaper than buying a new car! Sure its lining his pockets. The he tells me that my engine shaking is a a minor engine overhaul for replacing the head gaskets a mere $1,200. I decided to trade it in on a new Outback this week.
Confortable ride, good hauling capacity and powerful engine.
Better quality longer lasting. Better fuel economy thus smaller gas tank so that it doesn't cost $100 to fill it.
