2001 Ford Windstar SE 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Bought this van with ~ 70,000 miles in 2005. Did well until summer of 08 with 100,00 miles, leaving the Smokie Mts.. Torque Converter gasket blew spewing trany fluid on the poor guy behind me. Must say though that I am still running on same trany, just adding fluid every couple months. But at 85,000 brake sensor lights keep coming on for no apparent reason, the control for switching A.C. to Heat is not working, and oh when my Ford van found out that I was attempting to trade it in today, it decided to start spewing coolant.

Best Features

Seats are comfortable, drove nice.

Worst Features

If a dealer will not take in trade (in mercy)will enter it into demo derby with great delight! Ford...you have not learned your lesson. Will not buy another Ford as any car should hold up past 100K.
