2001 Ford Windstar SEL from North America
The best automobile I ever owned!
My current 2001 Ford Windstar SEL only had two problems. The first one was the two front struts cracked and need to be replaced, but that was all covered by the warranty. The second problem was the two rear shocks broke, but yet again, my warranty covered that.
What can't I say about this car, I love it. I have four kids and they all love it. We have an entertainment center that was just a VHS player, but we modified to play DVD's also. The two captain chairs in the center row are so comfortable you can fall asleep in them. The dual rear doors that are automatic make live so much easier. The best part of them is that one of my children have their hands outside the doors while their closing, the sensors turn on and quikly stops the movement. the ride is so comfortable. If your ever going to buy a used minivan I strongly suggest you buy a Windstar.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Could you please explain how you modified the entertainment system to play DVD? I would like to have this option for our van as well. Thanks.

I would be most appreciative to know how you converted the VHS player to a DVD player. Our VHS player is broken and we can't get parts for it, so if we could get the DVD player to replace it, we would be so grateful. We also love our 2001 Ford Windstar, it is the greatest vehicle we have ever owned. We checked recently to buy a new one and were so disappointed to learn they are no longer being made.
Thank you for any information you can provide regarding the replacement of our VHS player. email@example.com.

I don't know how to "convert" the system to play DVD, but you can plug a portable DVD player into the auxiliary input.

We also own a 2002 Ford Windstar and absolutely love it. We too are very sorry to see that Ford no longer makes this vehicle. We have 135,000 miles on ours and it is still going strong. My husband is going for 250,000. Looks like a brand new vehicle. Of course, my husband is a fanatic about his cars. The key to keeping them running is to change the transmission oil every 35,000 miles.

We also have a 2001 Ford Windstar SE that has about 130,000 miles on it, and it's still going strong. If we could change one thing it would be the VHS player to a DVD player. Can anyone out there tell us how to do that?
We contacted Ford and they don't make DVD players for vans made in that year. If anyone can give us some suggestions, we'd really appreciate it. Thanks!
