1995 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan


Review

This has been a good car. However,
there are some specific problems with
Head gaskets. Ford gave me an extended
warrantee until 100,000 miles or 7
years. The head gaskets blew at
107,000 miles, resulting in a large
bill ($2,500). I am fixing this car
because I believe it will last many
more years...I in spite of this problem
this car has been good to me.


Best Features

Premium Sound --- Aux A/C & Heating -- Remote rear windows -- excellant luggage capacity--- Drives Great on the Highway...very stable at high speeds!!


Worst Features

Too late...Ford replaced it with the Freestar...so we'll see if they learned anything...

Review

its been good to me other than the tell
tail head gasket going around the usual
100,000 mile mark, i did it myself and
saved a bunch of money, i would not buy
another older one though, it took me to
freekin days to change the head
gaskets, i would probably buy a newer
one. gas hawg!

Review

At 40,000 miles, the engine had to be
replaced as a result of a gasket. The gasket
was fixed after the recall, however the
engine broke down 2000 miles afterwards
and Ford would said it wan't related. Good
thing we had the dealership warrantee. I
have had the brakes fixed at least 4 times at
$600 a pop. I went through 2 sets of tires
before having the toe on the rear wheels
adjusted. One can get a workout closing the
side doors. The heat comes on when it feels
like it. The entire car vibrates above 30 mph.
The bottom line is this is my second ford and
my last!


Best Features

No one is tempted to steal it.


Worst Features

Start a new Van plateform.

Review

Taking good care of this car means a
lot;although Ford engines are not the
most reliable, using in my car synthetic
oil 5W-30(as the manufacturer
recommends),saved me from troubles.
I also have to mention the oil change
every 3000 mi.Transmission fluid was
also replaced every 15000 mi.Altogether
this is not a race car(do not push it
beyond its limits), but which demands
the same careful maintenance as being
one.


Best Features

Dashboard angled towards driver,powerful A/C, easy towing.


Worst Features

The engine needs a little more "zip", at 3.8L it absolutely needs 200hp. An electronic compass and thermometer wouldn't hurt anybody!
