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.


Favorite Features

Ability to lock doors from the back. Good safety ratings. Rides well.


Suggested Improvements

Improve quality and dependability. Do not think that you can establish a loyal customer base with vehicles that have plenty of bells and whistles but that are not reliable over the long run.

1995 Ford Windstar LX 3dr Minivan (1995.5)


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.


Favorite Features

Passing gear.


Suggested Improvements

None

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.


Favorite Features

comfortable ride; roomy; reliable transportation (except for head gaskets and usual, expected repairs/maintenance). Sound system (radio, cassette player, speakers) strong and reliable; no problems in a 9- year old car.


Suggested Improvements

Rear bench very heavy - difficult to remove/replace. FIX ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS - they are incredibly irritating (bells that won't stop, interior and warning lights that won't go off even when there is no problem); passenger window has been repaired several times - no excuse for that.

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

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.


Favorite Features

The exterior design was an improvement over many of the minivans in the mid 90s.


Suggested Improvements

Dependability, dependability, dependability. I would most likely have disregarded the cosmetic problems and may have been able to live with sensor problems but will never buy another Ford until it's proven that they've improved the design of the engines.
