The worst car ever built

Review

My Windstar has ONLY 60,000 miles... The first engine last 37,500 miles... The second engine, is costing me $650.00 to replace the camshaft sensor due to ENGINE CHECK light. FORD should buy back this junk and compensate all owners.

Never Again

Review

After 5 years and thousands of dollars in repair, we have finally traded in our 95 Ford Windstar. The brakes had to be replaced every 6 months, the head gasket needed replacing twice, and more! Some of the flaws have been improved in more recent models, but I will never trust a Ford product again. This was a new model year & definitely one to be avoided.

Green on the outside

1995 Ford Windstar LX 3dr Minivan (1995.5)

Review

My Windstar is green on the outside, but a lemon on the inside. In the first 75,000 miles it has had the transmission replaced, 2X - brake system replaced, wiper motor replaced 2X, power window motor replaced, the head gasket blew, it goes through tires about every 25,000 miles. The saving grace is that all but the tires were covered by warrantee, which Ford extended to 75,000 miles because of all of the difficulty we had with the car.

The Money Pit

1995 Ford Windstar LX 3dr Minivan

Review

Three months after we purchased this van, the engine blew. Fortunately, Ford paid for the new engine due to a recall, but one year later the same thing happened (head gaskets blew) causing another $1500 in damage. Six months later, it appears to be happening again. For what we've paid in repairs ( plus the initial cost), we could have bought a brand new Honda Odessey or Toyota Sienna. Whenever I see a Windstar owner in a parking lot, I love to ask them how many engines THEY'VE put in. We all appear to be in the same boat. The transmission is about ready to blow, too.

head gasket - again?

Review

This van has undersized barkes which mean that they need to be replaced more often then they should. The head gasket blew 1, 2 now 3 times, and we are working on transmission #2. Not reliable. rear heat and air don't have temp control - on & off only.

'95 Windstar

Review

Lots of trips to the dealer for repair. Not the wisest purchase we've made. Very weak brakes have made for some scary times. Rides well, though, and the kids love the space.

Trans & Brake Problems
By Speedy on 05/22/02 00:00 AM (PDT)

1995 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan

Review

Windstar is a nicely designed vehicle and should be a pleasure to drive, but the vehicle has serious problems with brakes, transmission and head gaskets. I get so tired of replacing brakes and components. Transmission shifts awkwardly and causes Check Engine light to come on, on long trips. Have had the head gasket replaced. I am not happy with the car mechanically and will be careful before buying another Ford. Consumers demand dependability and a vehicle that doesn't plague you with problems at 100K miles.

Van is Junk Ford has No Integrity

Vehicle

1995 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan

Review

This vehicle has blown its head gaskets five times! Three times after Ford Dealer installed an engine remanufactured by Ford. The transmission also failed at 40k miles. Ford not only been extremely reluctant to fix this piece of junk they seem to be incapable of doing so. If anyone tries to sell or even give you one of these things RUN AWAY AS FAST AS YOU CAN!!!!
