Best styling on 2003 SEL and Limited

Reliable vehicle if it was driven without salted roads due to electrical issues up North. This is my third Windstar and vehicles from the Northern states tend to have corrosion problems which causes electrical issues. I have driven in the South for a long time and no electrical issues. Reliable vehicle and had transmission replaced at 200k miles. No oil leaks, not bad for a 17 year old minivan. Too bad they ended the Windstar production.


Poor quality transmission. Had to replace it.

Great van. Love the interior design. Now have 308000 Kim’s on it & doesn’t use any oil. I do very stick maintenance on it. Original exhaust system.


Most reliable car I’ve owned

Good car this is my second one my first one was a 2000 Windstar Lx And the transmission went on it and I got this one and not the transmission is going on it they all seem to be having the same problem with the transmission


This is the best minivan that I have owned.

Out of all the minivans that I've owned, this is the best one. I've owned a GMC Safari, Chevrolet Venture, or Chevrolet Astro, the Chrysler Town & Country, and a Dodge Caravan. And this one is the best oh, and the most reliable.


Beautiful, reliable and comfortable to ride in.

I do wish it could have Sirius as well as a bluetooth connection as I drive a lot. It is so comfortable..I like the high headrest..without having to raise it with bars. The seats are so comfortable and the stereo system is awesome..It has a plug in the back of the van so when I need to open the back hatch.I can plug things in there..lots of space.


Comfortable Spacious Family Van

This van is very convenient and spacious. Great when traveling with the kids. Love the adjustable pedal, which I do not find in most of the cars/vans.



Happy when I first bought car but within 6 months emission light is always on abs brake light comes on goes away comes back on for some reason I have to warm car all the way to be able to take off so dissapointed


Have Han lots of issues since warranty expired

Great driving can holds the 3 kids and all of their stuff BUT have had electrical issues for years and at 90000 has to have rebuild engine installed . Found out from several other owners had similar problems with engine. At 120000 had transmission replaced still have electrical issues and they are expensive.Like lots of folks can't afford a new car so have to throw money into this. Was offered a 2002 for free from a friend but it to had electrical issues 3 mechanics told me to pass since issues could have been minor or major


Love it

I love this van!! It's very comfortable and drives great. Highly recommend for families with children.


Not a fancy car, this is a very useful car.

This car is my workhorse. Maintaining my house requires hauling garden materials, lumber, bags of concrete. This minivan has paid for itself. The abs brake module failed at about 80,000 miles. But there are several ebay opportunities to get if repaired for about 100 dollars. Installation costs another 100. Fuel pump failed, but that is to be expected. Another small expense. Engine and transmission have been totally reliable.
