2000 Ford Windstar SE 4dr Minivan


This was my only new vehicle in my life, and only bought it because my previous Ford Aerostar had a warped head problem so Ford offered me $4k off a new vehicle. That with "invoice pricing" made it as cheap as many newer used ones (sticker was $26k;paid $19K). Transmission was always 'clunky' and had it replaced within a year. At 30k it needed a new rack & pinion and power steering pump. Then had some good years, but always had noisy engine, clunky transmission, noisy front end (they can't find any problem), and terrible mileage (never over 15 no matter what). In 2009 had stalling problem they couldn't resolve. Then the brake/cruise recall. Now the engine is rattling, so surely a $1,000+ repair

Best Features

looks nice inside and out

Worst Features

mileage; engine and tranny; customer service - I had the repairs done 2 months prior when they had the brake/cruise control recall. They wanted $600 for a new cruise module but I got one from a junkyard for $50. When the recall notice came I asked for a new module but no deal, even denied my $50!
