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

Review

We purchased this vehicle in April 2001
for over $30,000. It was been recalled
at least 5 times the first year we had
it. There was a grinding noise that we
asked our servicing dealer about at
least 3 times and were told was normal.
We were just stranded 200 miles from
home returning from vacation because
the transmission spewed out all it's
fluid at a stop light. 3 months out of
warranty but only 23k miles. A $30k
vehicle that lasts less than 4 years.
Roadside assistance was a joke as well,
offering to give me the name of a tow
company but having to charge me $70.
Third generation ford family will not
replace this vehicle with another Ford.
Honda next time.

Best Features

Looks great, American Made.

Worst Features
