95 Ford Windstar -- Not Recommended
By kh550 on 06/19/03 00:00 AM (PDT)

Vehicle

1995 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan

Review

I've had many problems which include: Transmission problems, Head Gasket Replacement and continual Oxygen Sensor replacements ever since the Head Gaskets were replaced, Electrical Problems including windshield washer fluid not working, lights staying on and the related door ajar sounds it likes to make, etc... It has had brake problems and a surging engine problem. The sliding door fell off when it was opened all the way. Of course when it fell of it scratched the paint on the back quarter of the van. The most reliable component has been the check engine light which usually came back on within a week of having it out of my local Ford garage.

Better than Chevy

Review

Traded an Astro van for my 95 Windstar. Windstar is better by far. More room, better comfort, handling and workmanship than Astro. No problems to date other than routine maint. Excellent for long trips. Pulls our camper with no problems.

1995.5 Ford Windstar GL minivan

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.

Review

This a good car for children and for the dealer. I have 120k on the car and have had all the major problems: transmissions @ 40k and 110k, head gasket leak @ 60k, warning lights, abs problems, etc. Fortunately, the car has never been found on the road dead. Also own 2000 model no problems yet @ 30k

Bad Experience

1995 Ford Windstar LX 3dr Minivan

Review

We had a head gasket blow soon after we purchased this vehicle used. Four years later we've just recently had to have the transmission rebuilt and the head gasket has blown again. In addition to this there are minor problems all over the vehicle - inaccurate open door warnings, interior lights that won't turn off, seat adjustment knobs that work only sporadically, pieces of interior that have easily broken. Constant maintenance needed on brakes and drums.

GM AGAIN

Review

First and last FORD"Found On Road Dead" term has come true. Constant engine problems, mostly head gaskets, on second engine and second rebuild. In shop now again for lack of power. Transmission rebuilt at 65,000, going bad again, AC worked on several times...I get hot about this marvel from FORD. I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER ONE because the dealer / FORD does not want to fix it, they try to get me to buy another...no thanks, they don't get it!

Very Reliable

Review

Our Windstar has been the most reliable new car we've owned; we've also owned Honda and Volvo. The only warranty item was a loose driver's seat rack, which they replaced. Since then, we've replaced some front suspension pieces at pretty low cost; no other problems. Very comfortable on long trips.

Excellent purchase, until...

1995 Ford Windstar LX 3dr Minivan

Review

Our Windstar ran flawlessly for 5 years, since then the transmission was replaced twice and the engine once. After the engine was replaced it has been impossible to keep the A/C charged and running well. Otherwise, the past 2- 3 years have been relatively problem free. It's my wife's car. Now she says: No more Fords.
