2003 Ford Windstar Limited 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
I really like this van. Unfortunately, I had a high idling problem that went on for about 70,000 miles. Unexpectedly, it was diagnosed it as a bad throttle sensor. Once they replaced that, it's like a new car. I love it again. I've had a few "electricals." The driver side window motor had to be replaced. The "Check AdvanceTrac" comes on occasionally, but nothing is found to be wrong. Mileage is as stated, 18 to 24. I can live with that. I wish the seats were stow 'n go, but that's not a show stopper. They're heavy as heck, though. I've got 111,000 on it now and hope to get another 50-75,000. Bottom line, once the high idling was fixed, it's an nice car.
I like the 6-CD in dash. The heated seats are nice, too. The VCR is nice, but would have preferred a CD player, obviously. Aw, what the heck. I can hold on to VHS tapes for a few more years.
