Safe, reliable, substantial
Fender damaged by vandal, fender damaged by electric gates at work.
Hood seal replaced under recall.
Clear panel over the instrumentation cracked, replaced under warranty.
New tires approx every 80,000km, lube every 5,000km, new shocks at 120,000 and 210,000 approximately.
Transmission fluid changed.
Bodyside moulding replaced.
After some problems with the Camry and lack of space, the Windstar was purchased as a family vehicle. It now shares the driveway with a 2000 Chevrolet Astro, which has been less than stellar.
This van has reported engine and transmission problems, however after being used for 6 years car pooling, going on vacations, shopping, and going to sporting events, this vehicle has proven to be extremely durable.
Love the green interior, electronic instuments and dual blade windshield shades, etc.
No problems whatsoever, however replacement time does loom near due to the high mileage.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
