Vehicle1996 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan
ReviewWe purchased our Windstar new in '96.
Just before the 36K mile warranty
ran out, I had 2 minor items fixed
(tailgate struts and a side-view
mirror) I had the transmission fluid
and filter replaced at the dealer and
the trans checked out a-ok. About 2
months later (after the warranty ran
out) the transmission failed. Upon
reviewing my case and service records
Ford readily paid 90%. This was the
only problem until 85K miles(EGR and
Oxygen sensor) and at 90K with a
cracked engine sub-frame (odd). I've
spent $900 in repairs (except routine
maintenance)& 3 weeks in the shop for 6
years and 90K+ miles on a van that I
saved $4,000 off a Honda or Toyota.
Best FeaturesRoom, comfort, power
Worst FeaturesBetter handling! Leans too much in turns
