Windstar: More Strengths or Weaknesses?
By johnpetson on
Vehicle
2002 Ford Windstar LX 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
Review
The Windstar is overall pretty average. The excellent crash test scores, and the standard powerful engine, are all big and important advantages. However, the Windstar has many fairly important and annoying disadvantages, like the noisy engine, poor handling and components, and slightly-too-frequent trips to the dealer, which make it fairly better than average. What makes it perfectly average is the lack of the cruise control option on the Base LX; I spent about $3000 to upgrade to the Standard LX just for this, since the other extra features are pretty useless. I feel that it is cheap of Ford to do this, and perhaps it makes them lose customers.
Favorite Features
Rear climate controls, powerful engine, safety ratings (is this a feature?)
Suggested Improvements
Please allow consumers to get the cruise control on the Base LX- this is CRUEL. Also, the engine is noisy, the stereo sound is poor, and the ride is fairly unstable due to poor suspension.
