1995 Ford Windstar Minivan GL 3dr Minivan


Review

We thought we made a terrific purchase at a fantastic price. But what we did not pay up front on the price, we paid at the garage. It turned out to be a very expensive car. The head gasket blew at 104,000 miles and everything else went right after. We are trading it in and we will only get 2000 dollars for it...so sad. Ford's explanation? It has 100,000 miles...that is all you get! Tell that to Toyota...that's what I'll be driving!


Favorite Features

large interior, stain resistant seats


Suggested Improvements

head gaskets, brakes-big time, and Ford customer service can really be improved...needs big help

Review

I got this vehicle brand new in July 1995. This is the WORST piece of metal mankind put together since the bronze age !!! With 70,000 miles the steering wheel has been replaced 3 times, the engine once, the transmission twice, 3 sets of tires, several ENGINE CHECK light problems, ABS light problems, air conditioning spraying gas in the driver's face, etc. etc. etc... I will never even be a passenger of another FORD during my lifetime. Thanks God I just got a new 2004 Sienna. GOOD BYE FORD !

Trade in it for a horse. The horse is more reliable and you will get to your destination.

Review

I bought our van with 40000 miles on it. At 50000 miles the tranny went out and then again at 100000 miles. I can't tell you how many times I have replaced the brakes. I will never buy another late model Ford in my life. We are going to trade it in on a Honda Pilot Next month.


Favorite Features

The room it has.


Suggested Improvements

Mechanical problems. Major mechanical problems.

Review

Cute van, we thought, but the problems with the electricals (faulty warning lights, seatbelt and key tones etc) were endless. I stopped fixing them when the warranty expired. In the last year we replaced transmission, alternator, head gasket, and the brakes have worn down to the metal every year. We now drive a Honda, and will never go back to Ford.


Favorite Features

Smooth and roomy.


Suggested Improvements

Looks are nothing without reliability. I expect my cars to last 10 years, and to stay OUT of the shop!
