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


If this is Ford's idea of "quality is job one" then these should be built in China. Bought brand new, and on drive home from dealers lot fuel line came off gas tank. 1 week later both rear shocks go out (wasn't hauling anything). Had passenger sliding door seal replaced twice, as water was getting in cabin. At 37000 miles entire front rack had to be replaced (out of warranty). Have had approximately 8 sensors replaced (at $200 each). And at 70000 miles manifold gasket went out. All the while dealer and Ford say sorry but don't offer any reasonable compensation or replacement. Been driving Fords for 20 yrs... won't ever buy a Ford again!

Worst Features

Have stuff made in USA, instead of importing and just assembling in Detroit, and maybe quality will come back. This van will break anyone of ever wanting to buy a Ford again! Should change name to "CMV" (Constant Maintenance Van) as it spends more time in shop than in garage.
