Can you afford to
By ttudave on


1999 Ford Windstar LX 3dr Minivan


"Buy American" I thought proudly.

Two transmissions later I'm replacing
my Windstar with a Camry or an Accord.
I can't afford to be patriotic if that
means supporting unreliable vehicles
like this Windstar.

Dealers charge over $100 to diagnose
mysterious trouble lights on the
dash...three times already.

The AC and power steering systems leak.

Ford has a problem with their automatic
transmissions. The service manager at
the dealership advised me that
transmissions were a known Ford

Ford's customer service was useless.

Best Features

second sliding door.

Worst Features

tranmission and having the dealers charge for diagnosing dash trouble lights is outrageous. The car tells me there is a problem, I take it to the dealer and they tell me it will cost $129 to hook it up to a machine to identify the problem. That's maddening.
