Transmission failure @ 85,000
By Tim on
Vehicle
2002 Ford Windstar SEL 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
Review
Bought it new as a dealer orphan and got a good deal. Have been satisfied with reliability, economy and utility until now. O/D light started flashing and check transmission warning came on. The dreaded Windstar tranny failure strikes. Very disappointing because we were hoping to push to 100k before major repairs. The van has been dealer maintained, garaged all its life, well cared for, and 50% of the mileage is long distance. We'll suck it in and pay $3k for a remanufactured tranny with 3yrs / 100k miles warranty. And then pray the engine isn't next. Time to start using high mileage additives for safety.
Favorite Features
Plenty of space. Excellent for road trips.
Suggested Improvements
Sliding door windows should be able to be lowered. Seating should be re-configurable. For example, turn captain's seats to face rear, or swap bench to front / turn it backwards etc.
