1996 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan

Review

Well, the car is only OK. The head gasket problem, allegedly fixed by the 1996 model, is not fixed; it will need replacement at about 80K miles - a surprisingly consistent benchmark. If you buy a used one, make sure it's already been replaced. And the speedometer breaks. And the ABS. Luckily, the brakes themselves still work fine. Nuisance stuff.

Best Features

Good get up and go for a minivan.

Worst Features

Until American cars start putting out better quality, I'll pay the extra 2000 and get a Honda or Toyota.
