1996 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan

Review

I purchased a 1996 Ford Windstar GL in April of 1999 (28,500 miles). The car performed solidly to about 68,000 miles. At this point, the engine cooling gasket went bad and the entire engine needed replaced. Ford replaced the engine at a local dealer, but it still cost me about $1000.00. Now at 90, 000 Miles I am having a multitude of problems. Speedometer broken, re- winshield washer motor burnt out, wheel sensor failing, and transmission beginning to slip.

Favorite Features

The vehicle has a nice comfortable ride and the body is is solid. Good acceleration too.

Suggested Improvements

The powertrain repairs are expensive and much too prevelant. I am dissappointed in the overall durability of the vehicle. Advertised as Ford's best van, it does not live up to its billing.
