1999 Ford Windstar LX 3dr Minivan


I have owned two Windstars; '95 & '97. Bought the '95 used. Engine blew. Bought a new '99 LX with 4 doors. Justification was the '99 was "redesigned". I learned "redesigned" does not mean "improved" it just means different. All of the same problems everyone else has had.The pinging started at mile 1 off the dealer lot. Blamed many times on bad gas in the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex. Finally with 74K they replaced intake manifold - on my nickel. What a difference! First time it ran right. Now the tranny problems begin. At 94K traded for used Tahoe.

Best Features

The room, styling and good ride. The good things only amount to about 1/100th of the joy of ownership when compared to all of the bad stuff.

Worst Features

Stick with building F-150's. I can't complain about the one I still own that is 15 years old.
