The problem is that the poor reputation of the WINDSTAR is keeping customers away in droves because they think it is just a warmed over clone, plus the name leaves a lot to be desired also.

Ford missed the boat when they redesigned the Windstar and FAILED miserably to add anything new to the van that wasnt' already available previously in another make. I laugh each time I saw a Freestar commercial touting their INNOVATIONS. Ford better turn the light on because they are obviously in the dark.
