Review of the 1997 Ford Windstar

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Excellent cargo space. Outstanding V-6 engines. Attractive design.

  • Cons

    Not available with a driver-side rear-passenger door.

  • What's New for 1997

    Not much is new for the 1997 Ford Windstar. Caught flatfooted by the Chrysler and GM minivans that feature sliding left-side doors, Ford has installed a tip forward driver's seat, on early release 1998 models, to give passengers the option of entering from the driver's side. Hmmm, seems like that won't be enough to satisfy the fickle buyers of the minivan market.

Run, run for a better

Vehicle: 1997 Ford Windstar LX 3dr Minivan

Blown head gasket from failed sensor. Body scratches very easily, and visibly! Rack in constant need of readjustment. When driving on the hwy, feels like there is a sail attached to the roof. Very poor turning radius. Fix or Repair Daily. Never Ford. Never again.




Great family vehicle
