2002 Ford Windstar Owner Comments

problem #4

Feb 272017

Windstar LX 3.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 200,000 miles


Luckily I was with my husband, but I frequent Chicago which is a round trip of 200 plus miles. My daughter has health conditions only Luries can handle so all her specialists are there. Imagine had this happened on my way to Chicago? Surely, my one year old baby and I would be dead!!!!!!!!! I'm very emotional and distraught right now. My anxiety has me feeling I'm about to die!!!!!!!

problem #3

Windstar 3.4L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 130,000 miles

I received a safety recall notice in February 2016 for rear axle reinforcement brackets that were installed during a previous safety recall. I took the van to the local Ford dealer where they informed me that the brackets were installed correctly, but the rear axle cracked anyway because the brackets that were "installed correctly" did not do their job. The local ford dealership did take pictures and sent the to the Ford company. Ford however claims that they are not responsible for the faulty axle but would fix it for $300. My complaint is that why should I have to pay $300 for a part that was they already knew was faulty. The rear axle reinforcement brackets were put there to keep the rear axle from breaking. Why is Ford not responsible when their parts didn't do their job!
