This car is great!!! :D
Unlike other recalls, the only thing that has gone wrong with the car is that the Emergency Brake light will go on normally when I press the brakes reversing out of my garage. The Driver seat has started to wear badly, and I needed to replace the air filter 3 times.
I was in a frontal accident with a Chevy Silverado, which pushed my grille in, bent my hood, and tore my bumper off, so I don't blame it. The accident cracked and broke lots of the engine parts, like the A/C, and so on. It costed 11,459 dollars to repair. These are all little issues with the car, so I don't really care about a light turning on in the gauge.
The Windstar is a very roomy car with loads of power and acceleration. I'm 21 and I have friends with BMW's and Mustangs, and I'm not very far behind. Actually, I'm close behind. I timed my Windstar: 0-100km in 7.7sec. That's pretty darn fast for a "mini" van. The rear seats are comfortable and the van can fit seven kids and six adults comfortably, with 6 suitcases in the trunk. Although it is hard to remove all the seats, it is worth doing so. I fit all my boxes from the UPS store (I work there) in the Minivan, so I didn't have to take that junky truck. That was 27 boxes, and they weren't small either. The handling is good, but a lot better than my rental car, the Dodge Grand Caravan. The Dodge was a lot slower and less comfortable than my Windstar, and was ugly. I'm proud to go to Gotham's with my Windstar, and the street appearance is outstanding. It's a stylish minivan!!!!.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
