This was a decent family car but upgraded to something with a bit more room and power.
Best Mini Van Ever
Pros: Comfort driving long distance
Cons: nothingI love my Windstar. Now I'm going to have to replace it and I don't know what to buy. FORD - BRING BACK MY WINDSTAR!!
worst vehicle ever
Cons: performance & appearanceI either got a lemon, or the wrong year/make/model. The locks have shorted out and make such loud noises that repair guys have said they can't tell if the brakes are squealing with the loud buzz. The passenger sliding door inside panel won't stay attached. The car doesn't stay running in temp. under 50 degrees if you haven't warmed it up for at least 15-20 minutes. If you don't warm it up, it will die every time you have to stop at a stop sign or light. The dealership couldn't seem to fix it after 2 two-week attempts. The paint on the roof just started to fall off and blow around the grass. It looks pretty sad. Sometimes I think I would have been better off just saving the money and walking with my 6 kids everywhere. This car should never have been made.
Pros: big open back
Advice: buy it!!it's a MAN van!!!
Pros: 263 lb. ft. Torque - $15K with only 35,000mi.
Cons: my limited does not have memory seats or adjustable pedals. And sunroofs/but better for hail in GA.
Advice: Only truck like minivan available.Much better than my old Windstar. Only minivan I would drive.
Pros: The buckling and unbuckling of the safety belt..so easy..no pressure needed.
Cons: The ignition is very hard to turn.
Advice: If you havr arthritis of the hands, all the power items benefit you. It is easy to get in and out of also.I purchased a used 2002 Ford Windstar SE and am happy with it. I have Rheaumatoid Arthritis and all power features satisfy me. Especially the door handles on the inside and out..easy to grasp. The ignition is hard to turn and have rigged up a way to use the key. Once you have a disability you have to look at priorities differently. I have looked at 10 different vans in 2.5 days. None of them having all power features I need. This one did. The ride is smooth and quiet.
