Windstar: More Strengths or Weaknesses?
By johnpetson on


2002 Ford Windstar LX 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


The Windstar is overall pretty average.
The excellent crash test scores, and
the standard powerful engine, are all
big and important advantages. However,
the Windstar has many fairly important
and annoying disadvantages, like the
noisy engine, poor handling and
components, and slightly-too-frequent
trips to the dealer, which make it
fairly better than average. What makes
it perfectly average is the lack of the
cruise control option on the Base LX; I
spent about $3000 to upgrade to the
Standard LX just for this, since the
other extra features are pretty
useless. I feel that it is cheap of
Ford to do this, and perhaps it makes
them lose customers.

Best Features

Rear climate controls, powerful engine, safety ratings (is this a feature?)

Worst Features

Please allow consumers to get the cruise control on the Base LX- this is CRUEL. Also, the engine is noisy, the stereo sound is poor, and the ride is fairly unstable due to poor suspension.
