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


I never owned a Ford before and I will probably never own one again. American cars are unreliable compared to Japanese brands. No big issues with the car so far, but the Engine light has gone on and supposedly it is a problem w/an oxygen sensor, spark plugs or vacuum leak. Trying to fix it yourself is impossible and Dealer wants $90 just for diagnostic! Guzzled gas before and now with sensor/leak problem it's consuming $10 a day just to drive around the corner! Not a lot of road noise, but the vehicle shakes terribly. It feels like it's going to break apart on the highway. Doors are quirky and won't unlock w/keyless when too cold. I'll buy a Japanese or Euro make at trade-in.

Best Features

Leather interior, child rear view mirror, adjustable seats and gas pedal. Automatic doors.

Worst Features

Make it lighter, stronger, reliable and more economic in fuel mileage.
