1999 Ford Windstar SE 4dr Minivan


We bought this van because we had a second kid on the way. It was fine for family trips and such at first, but the alternator went with under 60K miles. Had major engine problem that required installation of a special valve and head gasket. Trouble with power sliding doors staying on track. Had tranny gasket leak, speed sensors, etc. After reading these reviews I'm worried about the steering and tranny now. Buying used we got an upgraded interior. That's the best part of the whole van. I'm not totally unhappy with it, just tired of spending money on it. Trade value is miserable and makes me want to hold on to a vehicle that will likely cost much more before I can afford another car.

Best Features

Sound system, rear controls for radio and air, sliding doors.

Worst Features

Ford needs to make their engine components more sound. Mechanics recommended I not get this when I asked their advice. The crash test results sold us, but that's not enough to get me to buy anything else from them again. Listen to customer complaints, all of us can't possibly be wrong.
