Avoid at All Cost!!
By slbenz on
Vehicle1999 Ford Windstar SEL 4dr Minivan
ReviewPurchased new in 4/99 and in the three
years I have owned it, the van have
been in the dealership four times for
power doors that would not close all
the way shut. The driver's door handle
internals broke and at 29.5K miles, the
transmission failed and had to be
rebuilt. Gas mileage is poor, it was
advertised to be 19 city 23 highway but
in reality is closer to 15 city 20
highway and that is not with a full
load. Handling and drivability is on
par with the best. Also, there is too
much wind and road noise that enters
the cabin. Won't buy a Ford again.
Best FeaturesPower seats, on board computer, keyless entry (works as far as 250ft.), handling only if equipped with Sport Package.
Worst FeaturesReliability of major components. Need to improve ingress/egress for third row seats when the 2nd row Captain chairs are occupied. Better gas mileage and a magic third row seat would be helpful.
