Comfortable Ride For Short Or Long Trips. — This is a great car for long rides and families. I have driven it to work daily. it handles well, has a great sound system and AC, it's quiet, and all the seats are adjustable for ample leg room. I especially love the power driver seat, lumbar support, and foot pedals.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Dependable & roomy

Cons: Rear window sometimes leaks if the rain blows just right.

Comfortable Ride — This car is great for long trips. It allows for ample leg room and cargo space. the AC can be adjusted by rear passengers. I haven't had any handling problems and very little maintenance issues. My wife loves this car!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Interior is roomy & user friendly. The seats adjust easily to make leg room.

Cons: There are some slight leaking around the rear window if the rain blows just right.

My 2002 Ford Windstar Lx — The van is nice looking and rides comfortably. We had the van in the shop this past August for multiple recalls that needed to be done. Ford took care of everything wonderfully. Gas mileage is ok, nothing exceptional. Obviously gets much better mileage on the highway than it does in stop and go around town traffic.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Has lots of space, and is a very comfortable ride. Has all the accessories that anyone could want in a mini van.

Cons: Gas mileage is average, not exceptional.

Overall Good. Food Cold Have Improeved The Overall Electronic Components — overall good vehdilce. I very much the nickel and dime repairs (which were under expoetend warranty fro me, but totaled around $3.5k radio replacement, electonic modules repalcements for the air vent controls, lighting computer, ande LCD screen for entertainment system. As with all fords I have owned over the years, an extended warranty (ford's or 3rd party) is highly recommended.

Pros: overall has been a very good mini-van- handlign is good and thre is positive road fell when driving

Cons: something on this vehicle will nickel and dime you. This years was in the middle of Ford qaulity improvements in their vehicles. Front disk require pad replacement about every 2.5 years.

$3100 — This Mini Van drives superbly. The front end feels more sturdy, safe, secure, than most other mini vans of it's class. Windstar SE's carry good resale values, low maintenance, easily accessible, reasonably priced parts (should the need arise) Some front end parts just changed, very high safety Quadruple 5-Star ratings (US), multiple passenger and vehicle safety features, is family oriented in it's design(wide body) and features, adjustable seats to accomodate family travelling, carrying, packing needs, rear climate/media controls prevents driver distraction if rear passengers need adjustments,front running lights compliment the mirror turn signal illuminating ground level in turning, adequate cargo space, wide dash and cab leg room. Overall it's a wonderful family vehicle that's still fun and sporty.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Extremely sturdy frame design, comprehensive safety package, reliable mechanics, roomy, and very clean.

Cons: Some body damage

Great Drive Short Life — My Ford Windstar had great performance, since it had a 3.8 engine and a new plentium, it ran like a dream. It was a good winter beater because it drove through snow drifts with no problems. i paid 250 for it and drove it a whole winter. the transmission pump starting pushing away from the manifold so i had to junk it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: pretty powerful and fast

Cons: it falls apart easily

Ford Windstar Lemon — I have never spent so much money on a vehicle or had so many problems - major ones as well as constant little ones. Is it normal to have the engine rebuilt after 2 years and replace gaskets, water pump and battery twice after only 3-4 years? I am convinced this is a real lemon and would not recommend this vehicle to anyone. My 1982 Chevrolet Chevette and my 1984 Hyundai Pony were far superior vehicles than the Ford Windstar. Everytime something was wrong with it, they had to put it on the "diagnostic machine" for $500-$600 to determnine what was wrong with it. What a rip off!

Pros: Looks okay.

Cons: Always something wrong.  Major engine and gasket problems after 3 years.
