75400 miles. noise from rear end becoming more noticeable. also, the transmission suddenly won't shift from 2nd to 3rd. dealer diagnosed the rear end problem as bearings needed to be replaced and probably the rear hubs were bad. the transmission was bad, and needed to be replaced. ford dealer service advised me to contact ford 800 number, and operator after putting me on hold and talking to the dealer turned the problem over to the next level of customer car because her limit of $500 would not begin to cover the repairs. ford costumer care called me and after letting me tell my story said there was no program dollars available for assisting in fixing either problem, even though the rear end problem was directly related to the previous visit at 74,400 miles per the dealers recommendation. also informed me that not even the $500 was available ,and the operator had no right to offer that amount. took the car from the dealer after paying $120, plus $100 car rental they would not cove) since the mileage was 400 over warranty 75000 mileage limit to diagnose a problem they failed to correctly diagnose the first 2 times. *ak

my 2003 ford expedition was parked on an incline with the parking brake set. the vehicle rolled down the hill and hit a building. it damaged the building and the vehicle(yet to be determined in amount). took the vehicle to the ford dealership to have it fixed and they found nothing wrong. called the ford satisfaction line and they are looking into it. the truck should not roll down an incline in park. i watched the vehicle roll. i refuse to place my 3 children back in the vehicle until the transmission can be fixed. i believe there is a defect in the transmission that it would allow the vehicle to roll.

on february 25, 2005, i was traveling 55 mph on the highway in traffic when my 1998 ford windstar began to leak oil and slow down. after several near collisions, i was able to get to the shoulder of the road. i instructed everyone to get out of the vehicle because of the smokey smell. i then called keystone aaa mid-atlantic my emergency roadside assistance service. next, the keystone aaa mid-atlantic technician arrived and he commented on the number of ford windstars that he picks up on a daily basis. after observing my vehicle, he stated that it is probably a transmission problem. i explained to him that it could not be the transmission because i just got a brand ?new transmission? two years ago. he then towed my vehicle to springfield ford in springfield, pennsylvania (6 miles away). on wednesday, february 26, 2005, i received a call from someone in the service department of springfield ford and i was told that i needed a new transmission and i was lucky that the vehicle did not catch fire because of the leaking oil. indeed, if springfield ford installed a ?new transmission? two- years ago and i now need another ?new transmission?, it is clear that the transmissions for the 1998 ford windstars are defective. moreover, i was on a busy highway traveling 55 mph when this second malfunction occurred. *ak

purchased a 2000 ford windstar last week of january 2004 for the price of 13900.00. the van was stored out back for a while, and was under 30,000 miles when i bought it. the dealer never got it inspected until two weeks after i purchased and picked up the vehicle. by july 2004, our van was in the shop regarding transmission problems. they had it for two weeks. upon picking it up, they left me no work order that was done and claimed they put in 4,000 dollars worth of work (verbally). i therefore contacted a lawyer. by december 2004, christmas eve day, my tranny blew. it wouldn't go forward and yet the motor was running fine. it would only reverse. two auto tech's came to my rescue and said it needs to be fully replaced. i had the van towed after the holidays (everything was closed for the four day weekend). so on monday upon my arrival, the company didn't want to put in for the repairs without my paying. i told them in six short months since july the tranny is gone? first repair was at 45 thousand miles and the next was at 60 thousand miles. i am now having more transmission problems. they only repaired it, never replaced it. for the price i pay for my monthly payments and the insurance and all, i don't think ford is being honest about their cars and ford dealers are lousy towards their customers. i feel very ripped off. all i want is my money refunded (all that i paid in payments including insurance and repairs if any) so i can go and find myself a "safe" reliable car. *jb

this truck is equipped with e4 od automatic transmission, while still under original warrentee i complained of jerky and rough shifting and was told by the service manager at the dealer, that this was normal, to protect myself at 32,000 miles i had the transissiom serviced and checked again for defects, and was told everything was a-okay. the rough and jerky shifting still occurred. at 67,000 miles the e4 od transmission failed. a reputable transmission authority was contacted, the problem and this is known by ford motor company, is the transmission in the e4 od which was standard at the time for this model, was not sturdy enough to get the preported 100,000 miles that the dealers brag about. the torque converter is too light weight for the 7.3 ltr engine and was completely dis intergrated, by the power of the engine. this had been on going even to the original warranty. ford is aware of the problem as this e4 od transmission has had numerous recalls and sevice bulletins since it's conception in the early 1990's.. ford motor company sent me a free 24 /24 extended warranty dated active 4 days after i paid $2500 for an overhaul of this e4 od transmission. i have 4 other ford products in my driveway and i'm so unhappy about this i feel like moving over to dodge. my family has always used ford products, but this time we are getting stuck with a huge repair bill that the ford dealer and ford motor company should be responsible for.
