Not as bad as it could have been

1996 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan
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.
Good get up and go for a minivan.
Until American cars start putting out
better quality, I'll pay the extra 2000
and get a Honda or Toyota.
