Time to sell it before too late
By G W on
Vehicle2003 Ford Windstar SEL 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
ReviewWe bought it used w/ @ 33,000 mi on it. The driver's side window motor went right away but the dealer fixed it under warranty. Now have @ 77,000 mi on it. Rear vent windows work & then don't, interior lights also flash on for no reason, now the head gasket is leaking- a seemingly common issue. I owned a '96 & it also was plagued w/ electrical glitches. I'm very nervous about the multiple listings of tranny failure as it has never seemed well mated to this engine - lots of downshifting when going up just moderate grades, not like the '96 but then Ford made this model @ 1000 lbs heavier. Think it's time to sell.
Best FeaturesHonestly, there's no a lot of difference between Ford and other makes of minivans. Thought the interior was pretty well appointed.
Worst FeaturesSame old American car complaints- cut corners so they just don't hold up like the imports and then don't own up to obvious design defects. This model de-evolved. They cut their own throats- no for more Fords for me.
