2000 Ford Windstar SEL 4dr Minivan


Bought this car used at about 3yrs/36k miles. Checked all reviews for this year and they seemed great for reliability. After hitting close to 75k miles this car is a money pit. The emission control light keeps coming on and my mechanic can't seem to fix it. Every week it goes back with a different problem fixed related to this light. I am starting to feel the trans slipping...just great! Just what I need. At the time I bought it, I couldn't afford a used Honda minivan, now with all that I've spent in repairs and aggravation I could (and should) have purchased that Honda. There has to be some type of recall...this is ridiculous!

Best Features

Roomy, dual sliding doors.

Worst Features

RECALL the emissions, rack & pinion, and transmission. Make a much better and reliable vehicle. Lets face it - anybody that is purchasing a minivan is looking for safety and reliability, they aren't buying it to look cool.
