Sad Tale of My Windstar
By the_five_js on
Vehicle
1995 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan
Review
I purchased a 95 Windstar 1 yr old with 15K mi. At first it ran well, great comfort and ride. Then came head gasket failure, resulting in engine rebuild. Ford recalled engines, a year after $4000 bill. Also replaced brake system (2x), trans, speedo head (3x @ $350 a pop). The door ajar chime always turned on/off at random. Towards the end cruise control and FI system failed. I got 140K miles out of this beast, but at WAY too high a cost of ownership. Just donated it to charity since repair estimates were greater than value. To anyone considering Windstars (any year but especially '95), be smart and look elsewhere -- no matter what the price!
Favorite Features
Great interior comfort; exceptionally smooth ride; good power from 3.8L V6
Suggested Improvements
Windstar has been replaced by Freestar, but anyone considering a Freestar should be warned of Windstar legacy!
