Pass on the Windstar due to poor reliability
Rear Shock: Replaced at 30,000 Miles.
Transmission: Replaced at 26,000 Miles.
Valve Cover Gasket: Replaced at 26,000 Miles.
Engine: Engine still knock going uphill. Ford has no fix for it. The dealership said "Ford Considers this a characteristic of the engine"
Interior is roomy and comfortable. The high floor is awkward loading the kids in and out. The vehicle is very noisy from wind noise, to engine drone and tire noise, long trips can be very annoying.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
