2003 Ford Windstar LX 3.8L V6 from North America
Awful. Don't buy one. Ever
Emergency brake never worked. Had it fixed several times.
Electrical system also never worked well. The interior lights had a mind of their own.
The intake manifold went around 80,000 miles.
The alternator went around 90,000 miles.
The starter went around 93,000 miles.
The windshield wipers stopped working around 105,000 miles, and I was going to have to pay $1800 to get them fixed. That was the final straw, and I sold it on the spot.
It's terrible. It was constantly giving me problems. The first one I owned wasn't great either. I honestly don't have a clue what made me decide to buy another one.
It left me stranded twice. It didn't shift through it's gears very well. Sometimes going up a hill it wouldn't shift down at all, and I had to shift into 2nd manually to avoid stalling.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
