Vehicle

1996 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan

Review

Bought this program vehicle in 1997. Had 22,000 miles and now has 120,000. Was very good (although it had some irritating electrical problems) until it hit 100,000 miles. Needed a transmission - surprise! Got a remanufactued one for $2,400. New tranny is fine. Terrible electrical system now requires trips to the shop every few months. Also has some problems when just started and idling.

Favorite Features

Good for comfort, and was pretty reliable until it hit 100,000 miles. Looked good and felt good for many years.

Suggested Improvements

Electrical system is the worst! Ford lost lots of customers because of the transmission and head gasket problems and unwillingness to stand behind its product. We have chosen to buy a Dodge Grand Caravan as our next van.
