OVERALL WORTH THE $$ AS A USED
VEHICLE, BUT HEATER BLEND DOOR FAILED
LEAVING US WITH LITTLE HEAT OR
DEFROSTER IN COLORADO. FORD WANTS
$1000 TO REPLACE THE WHOLE HEATER UNIT
TO REPAIR A $20 DOOR. THIS IS A DESIGN
PROBLEM. FORD DOES NOT CARE ABOUT YOUR
SAFETY. tHIS IS MY THIRD FORD BUT
We spent over $33,000 on this car new.
It has had nothing but problems with
the doors, stalling, horrible noises
coming from stero speakers in the
doors, steering has already gone as
well as mulitple other problems.
Brakes and rotors need replacing every
10,000-15,000 miles. Car died after
pulling into traffic; dealer couldn't
reproduce the problem but I still paid
a hefty fee for their diagnostic
testing. Extended warranty we bought
from Easy Care has covered nothing.
Three years later, this car's resale
value is only $9,000; what a waste of
money! We will never, ever, ever
purchase another Ford after our
experience with this Windstar.
Can't even begin to list all the things
that need to be improved. Just stay
away from this Lemon, and don't let the
new ads for the Freestar fool
you...it's still the same old crummy
Ford Windstar with a new name.
2003 Ford Windstar LX Deluxe 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
Comfort, Reliability, Performance,
Secure feeling, All these attributes
are what we feel when driving through
the White mountains of NewHampshire
especially on a dark road far away from
anywhere. The Windstar should rate far
better then any other minivan on the
road today. After repairing cars, vans
and tracker trailers over the years and
owning other mini vans, I have never
felt this strong about any other
Smooth stable confortable solid ride
that no other automobile has offered.
Responsive to my driving habbits,
Adjusts to any drivers habbits.
In a word; (Safe)
Better down road lighting for lowbeam
or add factory secondary lowbeams to
complament the primary lowbeams.
We only have the basic model, but I
still love this van. We had to have a
van with newborn twins!! This was the
best for its value and space. One of
my friends has a MVP and it is sooo
cramped compared to my van.
4 doors to get the babies in. Plenty
of room for additional friends to ride
This van has everything a family needs.
It has a very strong V6 engine that
generates 200 hp and 240 lb. ft. of
tourqe . The interior is nice and
comfortable and most vans dosent let u
adjust the middle and rear seats for
leg room , the windstar does!My fanily
just went on a fishing trip and we took
the family , all their stuff and a 3500
pound boat . Again , this van has alot
to offer , use it.
I liked the flexibility of seating and
the comfort , exspecially on long
trips , it has a ver powerful V6 and
good traction with the traction
control . The hefty 3500 towing
capacity is good for small tralers
there are no mjor improvement i can
think of incept that there could be
more insulation on the engine wall
