1996 Ford Windstar LX 3dr Minivan

Review

Like many posts here, had no serious problems to speak of until 75K mi. The sensitivity of the oxygen sensors; ultimately replaced them all; head gasket went this year at 84K. I've owned a number of 4 different Fords since 1982; not perfect by any stretch but this year had to replace the engine in a 1994 Honda Civic with 104K - That's NEVER supposed to happen with them; have owned Toyotas (3), Mazda and an Acura. Fact is, NONE of these cars have been perfect. This van was the best deal on the road when we bought in 1997 with 29K. It is a comfortable vehicle that has been surpassed by newer versions by competitors.

Best Features

Comfortable seating, rear radio, air; digital speedometer display; all-trac and load level; great field of vision

Worst Features

Seats from that era are heavy and somewhat difficult to remove; engine valves.
