No Fan of this Van
By HWB on
Vehicle1995 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan
ReviewWent the head gasket blew my Windstar was less than five years old, but at 100,500 miles (501 more than the max. for factory paid repair.) Even after the efforts of the local Ford dealership to request that Ford pay to repair my head gasket, Ford refused ($1,000 down the hole). Now my transmission is going and the rebuild isn't a lot less than the trade in value. I am not even going into the poor gas mileage. Ford should have made recalls on the headgasket and the transmission. If Honda can produce vehicles that go 200,000 miles and more without significant problems, then we should be able expect as much from Ford.
Best FeaturesThe interior design is comfortable and aesthetically pleasing. It has been a nice vehicle for long trips. The premium stereo system is impressive. Overall a nice, solid body and well designed interior with a rotten engine and transmission.
Worst FeaturesBuild a van and design the power plant and transmission for it -- don't rip them out of a car and expect them to perform or endure well!
