1998 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan

Review

We have had more costs for repairs for this car than the car itself cost 5 years ago, and way more than it's worth today. Everything from the engine to the wheel covers have been trouble. We have had to repair or replace the radiator, wheel bearings (all of them), power steering pump, windshield wiper motor, oxygen sensors, exhaust manifold gaskets, head gaskets, serpentine belt pulley, front axle, dozens of lug bolts and the silly sunburst wheel covers 6 times. Why they have a wheel cover on an alloy wheel is beyond me. I would never recommend this car to anyone.

Favorite Features

Power. The sound system was nice, but doesn't play burned CDs. Roomy and comfortable.

Suggested Improvements

They have already rebuilt it (to the Freestar), but the list of needed mechanical improvements is too long to fit in this box. They should junk the whole "-star" lineup and start over.
