2003 Ford Windstar LX Standard 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

Review

The first 2 yrs were great, no problems (even posted here in 08-2005). However, since early 2006 we have had the interior lights flashing, dealer can not fix and many many compliant logged with no known TSB or fix. (Replaced: light swithc 2x; both sliding doors and rear gate sensors) -- Now the intake manifold must be replaced due to a PLASTIC seal used that melts around 50- 70K miles. *We have 55K now. $100 part and 3 hrs of labor at your dealer of choice @ $120= total $460 before taxes. My dealer stated 4-6 vans a day must have this done, and Ford will not issue a recall as this is not a Safety issue. Just causes the van to suck more gas and fail emmissions.

Best Features

VCP for the kids; the sliding doors allow the kids to get in and out w/out help.

Worst Features

Quality - Quality - Quality (it used to be job #1) Ford needs to stand behind their product -- another customer GONE!!! After 4 previous purchases, NEVER again.
