Good Bye Ford, Hello Nissan

2000 Ford Windstar SE 4dr Minivan


I purchased my 2000 Windstar used 4 years old with 42000 miles on it in the hopes it would last me several years and provide dependable service. I have spent far more maintaining this vehicle than I would have with another vehicle. The transmission is slipping (75,000 miles), struts need replacing, power door locks not working, fuel economy is 17 mpg (which is harder to swallow closer to $3/ gallon) and vehicle has always had problems with alignments. The worst part is that given the dependability and performance of the Windstar, I'll lose a significant amount of money today as I trade it in on a (yes) foreign car to take advantage of the Japanese ability to build dependable vehicles that hold their value.

Best Features

I have to admit that it was comfortable.. The leather interior was my first vehicle with leather seats,

Worst Features

Improve fuel economy, transmission, suspension.
