1996 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan

Review

Bought used in end of 1999, with the 3.8 Leter engine. Never had any major problems. First Van even owned and love it. But there are electrical problems galore but fortunately none have lead to a significant problem: Engine light comes on and stays for months - mechanic can't find anything wrong, thus resets. Interior lights frequently don't shut off after closing doors for up to 30 minutes at a time. Occasionally, the 'Door is open' alarm does not shut off after the door is shut. 'Door is open' light indicator seemingly always shows that one of the doors (or rear hatch) is open when, in fact, they are all closed and double checked.

Best Features

Good power when needed. Good dependable transportation.

Worst Features

At low speeds, when the trans. changes from 1st to 2nd the van noticably jumps. Make the rear 3rd seat weigh less - it's a bear to remove by oneself. Vans need full-size spares - not donuts. Make the Spark Plugs easier to get to.
