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


I bought this van new in June 2003 with 5 miles on it. About half the time I've had it, there was a high idling, throttle problem. Once they figured out to replace the throttle sensor, and then the throttle assembly, it has run great....and I've got over 140,000 miles on it now. I had to replace the transmission at 112,000 miles, which cost about $3,300. It gets about 22 mpg on the highway, and 17 in town. It has all the whistles and bells and they all still work....although I wish they had had the DVD instead of the VCP. I'm happy with my Windstar and expect to keep it for another 3-4 years.

Best Features

The cruise control is well-designed and simple to use. I also like the 6- CD player and Traction Control.

Worst Features

They could have improved the throttle assembly. It took about 70,000 miles to figure out what was causing the high idling.
