A Faithful Friend

Review

This vehicle served its intended purpose well - it was a reliable, comfortable and overall fairly inexpensive means of transportation for my family. My wife used it to take my kids around and we used it for family trips. It never gave me any serious problems and got decent fuel mileage. The most important feature of this van was that it saved our lives when we crashed into the back end of a stopped Z-71 Pickup on Rt. 40 in Arkansas. Our van was totaled, the air bags popped, the belts tightened, etc. - the worst injury we had was a broken toe when I kicked the passenger side footwell just before the crash. Thank you Ford!

Review

It has been a reliable vehicle. It had a head gasket problem but Ford fixed that. Brakes every 40 - 50,000 miles. Nothing out of the ordinary. (except odd electrical problem, Ford wiring always seems to be an issue)

1995.5 Ford Windstar GL minivan

1995 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan (1995.5)

Review

Purchased this used and have gotten 110,000 miles from it. Comfortable ride, roomy - adding a fourth door on newer models definitely an improvement. Electrical problems, mostly with interior lights, warning bells, passenger window, have been numerous. I am now in need of a head gasket (last one was installed 2 years ago). Transmission still good. A/C and heating have been powerful, reliable.

Worst car ever purchased

Review

Bought this car used in early 1997 with 38,000 miles on it. Had no idea what I was in for. By 68,000 (only 30,000 put on by me) I had replaced the computer, the head gasket and the transmission. By 72,000 miles, the transmission was gone again and the AC was blowing anti freeze into the car.

My hunk of junk

Review

I have at least one recall a year on the breaks,and trans every 2 years. Every one in my family hates the car. (Except my 6 year old son because when ever we go over a inch hole in the groud at 20mph the back of the car goes flying up) This car is just an over sized shopping cart with a 6cyl.

Oddball: Pleased with my Windstar
By redgaucho on 10/14/02 00:00 AM (PDT)

Vehicle

1995 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan (1995.5)

Review

We bought this Windstar with 70K miles in Mid-97. It now has over 170K. We still get 21MPG, which I ck every time I refuel, and use it as a diagnostic alert, if it goes dn. We drive mostly in the hwy, since we live in the country. I do all minor maintenance such as tires/brakes/tuneups/oil chgs, etc. and I have not had any head gasket, transmission or brake problems. Everything still works fine! I am planning on trading it in for ANOTHER WINDSTAR pretty soon, though. I have been very pleased with it.

I used to be a Ford Fan

Review

I bought this vehicle used, and did not notice that it already had a rebuilt transmission. The head gasket blew at 75000 miles, Ford fixed it, but I was still stranded with family. The van shakes terribly, and no one can diagnose problem. One mechanic said "I would sell it, probably another transmission" I now have 90,000 miles on it and it has left us stranded 3 times. If not for budget restraints, I would have traded a long time ago. Do not waste your money on this vehicle, go ahead and pay sticker for a Honda or Toyota.

Do not buy this car

Review

Engine blew up 18 days after warranty expired. Ford knows this V6 is a lemon and is dodging responsibility.
