1996 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan
I had a 1995 Windstar that I loved. I
fell asleep, sit the back of a semi,
and totalled the Windstar. I was so
impressed with the safety factors--I
walked away with a whiplash and some
back medium back issues--that I called
my salesman and told him to find me
another one just like it. He did and
now over 6 years later, I still love
it.I have driven long distances in
comfort, hauled a huge variety of
items, lots of furniture, building
supplies, kids, dogs, people and
luggage and never been disappointed.
I've even pulled out small trees and
shrubs with my Laser Red Windstar!!!
I love the remote door locks and the
remote alarm; I feel safer and the
remote door opener helps when I'm
alone and carrying packages. Also the
remote rear window =vents are great.
I guess every feature is great and now
the newer ones have even more options.
I'd enjoy better overall gas mileage,
and now there is a sliding door on the
driver's side--nice. Otherwise
everything else was fine.Maintenance
wise, better brakes--I had to replace
them at 35,000 miles, but now am still
on the 2nd set.
