#178 of 231 Windstar 02 lost control due to transmission failure
Dec 07, 2011 (1:59 pm)
I wish to keep my 2002 Windstar for a long time. But her life was cut short at little bit over 88,000 miles. This is a record short life for any modern cars!!! I have spent so much money, time and frustrations on this "Star". The car finally stopped in a parking lot when I was backing it onto a road in the parking lot with horrible snapping and grinding noises. A fellow driver said it was a transmission failure. Thank God for not having this problem on a highway. I am very scared by this (my whole family was in the van) and I am compelled to tell this tory. I really hope that all the drivers of this car will be safety and fine.
I would like to know if this is a normal failure for this car. Does Ford has any recall for it's transmission or any other parts for this car?
Ford should take all their Windstars back in order to avoid tragedies.

Shifter has loose feeling on column, sometimes unable to "find" drive D. Is this an inexpensive fix ?

Go to https://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/VehicleComplaint/index.xhtml and report your issue and let's get a recall on this tranny issue with the Ford Windstars. I have one parked at home as well and need something done about it. Ford should pay for this not the consumer! Darla
