1995 Ford Windstar LX 3dr Minivan
Review
We have owned our 95 Ford Windstar since it was new. We had one blown headgasket replaced under the recall. A second blown head gasket cost us $1,600.00 (not covered under recall). Transmission slipping for the last year (holding our breath). Radio problems, alternator, door ajar lights wont go off (dead battery frustration). Sliding door fell off several times (was told a defect but Ford won't cover it). Leaking water pump, (very expensive labor). Third head gasket just blew ... (forget it...I just put some head gasket sealant in it and it seams to have fixed that problem). The clogged catalytic converter ended up melting our wiring harness (long story); numerous other small things.
Favorite Features
With all of our complaints you would think that we are bitter and hate our Windstar ... not exactly. It is one of the most comfortable, attractive interiors that I have seen. Smooth ride, powerful 3.8L motor. Fits my 6ft.1" body well. It appears that Ford just rushed it to market a little too soon.
Suggested Improvements
Better head gasket, add another side door, fix the sliding door falling off problem, fix the door open interior lights problem or hand out free batteries.:) Maybe a little more tech support on problems and what causes them (a communication thing?). Stronger transmission to handle the weight & torque?
