1999 Ford Windstar SEL 4dr Minivan


Too many mechanical failures. Required
immediate replacement of power steering
pump when brand new. Has needed two
rebuilt transmissions in less than
80,000 miles at over $2,000 apiece.
Neither transmission incident was
covered under any warranty.

In short, total cost of ownership of
this vehicle is way too high. It was
expensive to buy initially, and the
repair costs make it infeasible to keep.

Best Features

Decent sound system. Luggage rack and seating for seven is handy.

Worst Features

Poor reliability. Transmission failure every two years is unacceptable. Seats are very heavy and hard to move in and out, particularly the rear bench seat. V6 somewhat underpowered for size of vehicle.
