2003 Ford Windstar Limited 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Bought this Limited van in Dec 2002
and have had numerous electrical
probs. Dead batteries, fuel sensors,
blower switches, etc. Driver front
door was hard to close and had to be
re-fit but still has high closing
effort. The electrical engineers for
this program should be thrown out on
their ear.


Best Features

Heated seats, automatic sliding side doors


Worst Features

automatic electric liftgate, more storage compartments, DVD player and larger LCD screen, better 3rd row seat removal-installation

2003 Ford Windstar SE 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

OVERALL WORTH THE $$ AS A USED
VEHICLE, BUT HEATER BLEND DOOR FAILED
LEAVING US WITH LITTLE HEAT OR
DEFROSTER IN COLORADO. FORD WANTS
$1000 TO REPLACE THE WHOLE HEATER UNIT
TO REPAIR A $20 DOOR. THIS IS A DESIGN
PROBLEM. FORD DOES NOT CARE ABOUT YOUR
SAFETY. tHIS IS MY THIRD FORD BUT
LIKELY LAST.


Best Features

3.8 ENGINE


Worst Features

STAND BEHIND YOUR PRODUCT FORD.

2003 Ford Windstar SEL 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

We spent over $33,000 on this car new.
It has had nothing but problems with
the doors, stalling, horrible noises
coming from stero speakers in the
doors, steering has already gone as
well as mulitple other problems.
Brakes and rotors need replacing every
10,000-15,000 miles. Car died after
pulling into traffic; dealer couldn't
reproduce the problem but I still paid
a hefty fee for their diagnostic
testing. Extended warranty we bought
from Easy Care has covered nothing.
Three years later, this car's resale
value is only $9,000; what a waste of
money! We will never, ever, ever
purchase another Ford after our
experience with this Windstar.


Best Features

Comfortable seating.


Worst Features

Can't even begin to list all the things that need to be improved. Just stay away from this Lemon, and don't let the new ads for the Freestar fool you...it's still the same old crummy Ford Windstar with a new name.

2003 Ford Windstar LX Deluxe 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Comfort, Reliability, Performance,
Secure feeling, All these attributes
are what we feel when driving through
the White mountains of NewHampshire
especially on a dark road far away from
anywhere. The Windstar should rate far
better then any other minivan on the
road today. After repairing cars, vans
and tracker trailers over the years and
owning other mini vans, I have never
felt this strong about any other
automobile.


Best Features

Smooth stable confortable solid ride that no other automobile has offered. Responsive to my driving habbits, Adjusts to any drivers habbits. In a word; (Safe)


Worst Features

Better down road lighting for lowbeam or add factory secondary lowbeams to complament the primary lowbeams.

2003 Ford Windstar 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

We only have the basic model, but I
still love this van. We had to have a
van with newborn twins!! This was the
best for its value and space. One of
my friends has a MVP and it is sooo
cramped compared to my van.


Best Features

4 doors to get the babies in. Plenty of room for additional friends to ride along.
